Pure python implementation of Apache Thrift.

Project description

http://img.shields.io/travis/eleme/thriftpy/develop.svg?style=flat http://img.shields.io/github/release/eleme/thriftpy.svg?style=flat http://img.shields.io/pypi/v/thriftpy.svg?style=flat http://img.shields.io/pypi/dm/thriftpy.svg?style=flat

ThriftPy is a pure python implementation of Apache Thrift in a pythonic way.

Documentation: https://thriftpy.readthedocs.org/

Installation

Install with pip.

$ pip install thriftpy

You may also install cython first to build cython extension locally.

$ pip install cython thriftpy

Code Demo

ThriftPy make it super easy to write server/client code with thrift. Let’s checkout this simple pingpong service demo.

We need a ‘pingpong.thrift’ file:

service PingPong {
    string ping(),
}

Then we can make a server:

import thriftpy
pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift")

from thriftpy.rpc import make_server

class Dispatcher(object):
    def ping(self):
        return "pong"

server = make_server(pingpong_thrift.PingPong, Dispatcher(), '127.0.0.1', 6000)
server.serve()

And a client:

import thriftpy
pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift")

from thriftpy.rpc import make_client

client = make_client(pingpong_thrift.PingPong, '127.0.0.1', 6000)
print(client.ping())

See, it’s that easy!

You can refer to ‘examples’ and ‘tests’ directory in source code for more usage examples.

Features

Currently ThriftPy have these features (also advantages over the upstream python lib):

  • Supports python2.6+, python3.3+, pypy and pypy3.

  • Pure python implementation. No longer need to compile & install the ‘thrift’ package. All you need is thriftpy and thrift file.

  • Compatible with Apache Thrift. You can use ThriftPy together with the official implementation servers and clients, such as a upstream server with a thriftpy client or the opposite.

    Currently implemented protocols and transports:

    • binary protocol (python and cython)
    • compact protocol (python and cython)
    • json protocol
    • buffered transport (python & cython)
    • framed transport
    • tornado server and client (with tornado 4.0)
  • Can directly load thrift file as module, the sdk code will be generated on the fly.

    For example, pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift") will load ‘pingpong.thrift’ as ‘pingpong_thrift’ module.

    Or, when import hook enabled by thriftpy.install_import_hook(), you can directly use import pingpong_thrift to import the ‘pingpong.thrift’ file as module, you may also use from pingpong_thrift import PingService to import specific object from the thrift module.

  • Easy RPC server/client setup.
