multiprocessing.Process-based child processes can safely be
created anywhere within your gevent-powered application. The API of
multiprocessing.Process objects is provided in a gevent-cooperative fashion.
Also, gipc provides a pipe-based transport layer for gevent-cooperative
inter-greenlet and inter-process communication. gipc is lightweight and easy to
integrate (see code
examples, API reference).
gipc is used by, among others, Quantopian’s remote Python debugger, Ajenti, Chronology, gipcrpc, NetCall, PokeAlarm, Wishbone, and GDriveFS. Are you successfully applying gipc in your project? That is always great to hear: please drop me a line!
The current version of gipc works on CPython 2.7/3.4/3.5/3.6/3.7. It requires gevent 1.2 or 1.3 and supports both, Unix-like systems as well as Windows. On Unix-like systems, gipc also works with PyPy2.7 and PyPy3. gipc’s test suite is automatically executed on Linux, Darwin (macOS), and Windows.
