python-tdbus 0.9

A Python interface to D-BUS


Python-tdbus is a simple ("trivial") python interface for D-BUS. It builds
directly on top of libdbus and has no other dependencies. Some benefits of
python-tdbus with respect to the standard dbus-python [1]_ Python bindings:

 * The code is extremely simple. Python-tdbus is < 2.000 lines of code (C and
   Python), while dbus-python contains > 15.000 lines of code.
 * Event loop integration is not required for sending and receiving signals (if
   you can afford to block).
 * Includes `gevent' [2]_ event loop integration.
 * Event loop integration can be achieved in Python code rather than in C.
 * Uses native Python types for method and signal arguments, driven by a simple
   format string.
 * Provides a more "correct" object model (IMHO) where there's separate
   Dispatcher and Connection objects, instead of putting dispatching
   functionality into the connection object.

Building and Installing

 $ python build
 # python install

 or using pip

 $ pip install python-tdbus


Python-tdbus should work with Python 2.6 and later (Python 3.x included).
