execnet 1.0.4

execnet: rapid multi-Python deployment

Latest Version: 1.5.0

execnet provides carefully tested means to ad-hoc interact with Python interpreters across version, platform and network barriers. It provides a minimal and fast API targetting the following uses:

  • distribute tasks to local or remote CPUs
  • write and deploy hybrid multi-process applications
  • write scripts to administer a bunch of exec environments


  • zero-install bootstrapping: no remote installation required!
  • flexible communication: send/receive as well as callback/queue mechanisms supported
  • simple serialization of python builtin types (no pickling)
  • grouped creation and robust termination of processes
  • well tested between CPython 2.4-3.1, Jython 2.5.1 and PyPy 1.1 interpreters.
  • fully interoperable between Windows and Unix-ish systems.
