Project description

https://img.shields.io/travis/AntoineCezar/timeoutcontext.svg https://img.shields.io/badge/docs-latest-brightgreen.svg https://img.shields.io/coveralls/AntoineCezar/timeoutcontext.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/timeoutcontext.svg

A signal based timeout context manager and decorator.

Since it is signal based this package can not work under Windows operating system.

Usage

As a context manager:

import sys
from time import sleep
from timeoutcontext import timeout
if sys.version_info < (3, 3):
    from timeoutcontext._timeout import TimeoutError

try:
    with timeout(1):
        sleep(2)
except TimeoutError:
    print('timeout')

As a decorator:

import sys
from time import sleep
from timeoutcontext import timeout
if sys.version_info < (3, 3):
    from timeoutcontext._timeout import TimeoutError

@timeout(1)
def wait():
    sleep(2)

try:
    wait()
except TimeoutError:
    print('timeout')
