Examples

For some more concrete examples, check out the tests/ directory.

Call / Response

from ipc_unix import Server, Client

class EchoServer(Server):
    def handle_request(self, request):
        return request

socket_path = '/tmp/sock.sock'
server = EchoServer(socket_path)
client = Client(socket_path)

print(client.send({"foo": "bar"}))
>>> {"foo": "bar"}

server.close()s

Pub-Sub

from ipc_unix import pubsub

socket_path = '/tmp/sock.sock'
publisher = pubsub.Publisher(socket_path)
subscriber = pubsub.Subscriber(socket_path)

publisher.write({"foo": "bar"})
print(self.subscriber.get_latest_message())
>>> {"foo": "bar"}

publisher.close()
subscriber.close()
