pybloomfiltermmap 0.3.6

A Bloom filter (bloomfilter) for Python built on mmap

Latest Version: 0.3.14

# pybloomfiltermmap [![Build Status](](

The goal of pybloomfiltermmap is simple: to provide a fast, simple, scalable, correct library for Bloom Filters in Python.

## Docs

See <>.

## Overview

After you install, the interface to use is a cross between a file interface and a ste interface. As an example:

>>> fruit = pybloomfilter.BloomFilter(100000, 0.1, '/tmp/words.bloom')
>>> fruit.extend(('apple', 'pear', 'orange', 'apple'))
>>> len(fruit)
>>> 'mike' in fruit

## Install

You may or may not want to use Cython. If you have it installed, the setup file will build the C file from the pyx file. Otherwise, it will skip that step automatically and build from the packaged C file.

To install:

$ sudo python install

and you should be set.
