rfoo - Fast RPC client/server module.

Maintainer: Anand Aiyer Original Author: Nir Aides Website: https://github.com/aaiyer/rfoo Version: 1.3.1

rfoo (remote foo) is a fast Python RPC package which can do 160,000 RPC calls per second on a regular PC. It includes a fast serialization module called rfoo.marsh which extends the Python built in marshal module by eliminating serialization of code objects and protecting against bad input. The result is a safe to use ultra fast serializer.

SSL wrapper support added by Jiri Lunacek of Hosting90 Systems s.r.o. Email: [email protected] Website: http://www.hosting90.cz SSL patch version: 0

Example server code:

class MyHandler(rfoo.BaseHandler): def echo(self, str): return str


Example client code:

c = rfoo.InetConnection().connect() Proxy(c).echo('Hello World!')

rconsole - included with rfoo package is a remote Python console with auto completion, which can be used to inspect and modify namespace of a running script.

To activate in a script do:

from rfoo.utils import rconsole rconsole.spawn_server()

To attach from a shell do: $ rconsole

SECURITY NOTE: The rconsole listener started with spawn_server() will accept any local connection and may therefore be insecure to use in shared hosting or similar environments!
