Yet Another Kyoto Cabinet Binding

Project Description

yakc (Yet Another Kyoto Cabinet Python Binding) is a Python module to manipulate Kyoto Cabinet with Python dictionary manner. This module also can be used as drop-in replacement of Python dict if you want to store many data in dict.

yakc focuses to replace Python dict to store huge amount of data. If you want to Kyoto Cabinet database as key/value store, I recommend to use the official Python binding.
