Littleworkers: Petite Python Command Runners

Daniel Lindsley, of django-haystack, django-tastypie, and itty fame, just launched a small but useful project.


This extremely minimal Python module allows you to set a list of command strings to be executed by the system, and it eats through them in a process pool.

Example usage:

from littleworkers import Pool

# Define your commands.
commands = [
    'ls -al',
    'cd /tmp && mkdir foo',
    'echo "Hello There."',
    'sleep 2 && echo "Done."'

# Setup a pool. Since I have two cores, I'll use two workers.
lil = Pool(workers=2)

# Run!

Simple. Pythonic.
