Library to quickly build ZeroMQ based applications.

Project description

Library to quickly build ZeroMQ based Python applications.


Library to make writing applications using ZeroMQ message patterns through PyZMQ easier.

TODO: explain ZMessage and ZNode classes.


A ventilator sends jobs to multiple worker processes, which send the results to a sink.


  • ventilator -> worker: jobs for the workers
  • ventilator -> sink: IDs of jobs sent to workers, so sink knows if all jobs have completed
  • worker -> sink: results
  • sink -> worker: sink sends shutdown command, when finished
