Using Thrift with Python
Thrift is provided as a set of Python packages. The top level package is thrift, and there are subpackages for the protocol, transport, and server code. Each package contains modules using standard Thrift naming conventions (i.e. TProtocol, TTransport) and implementations in corresponding modules (i.e. TSocket). There is also a subpackage reflection, which contains the generated code for the reflection structures.
The Python libraries can be installed manually using the provided setup.py file, or automatically using the install hook provided via autoconf/automake. To use the latter, become superuser and do make install.
