txZMQ - ØMQ for Twisted¶
txZMQ allows to integrate easily ØMQ sockets into Twisted event loop (reactor).
txZMQ supports both CPython and PyPy, and ØMQ library version 2.2.x or 3.2.x.
txZMQ introduces support for general 0MQ sockets by class
that can do basic event loop integration, sending-receiving messages in
non-blocking manner, scatter-gather for multipart messages.
txZMQ uses ØMQ APIs to get file descriptor that is used to signal pending actions from ØMQ library IO thread running in separate thread. This is used in a custom file descriptor reader, which is then added to the Twisted reactor.
From this class, one may implement the various patterns defined by ØMQ. For
example, special descendants of the
txzmq.ZmqSubConnection, add special nice features for
Other socket types could be easily derived from
