What can gipc do for you? ========================= With ``gipc`` (pronunciation “gipsy”) child processes and gevent can easily be used within one Python application. ``gipc`` provides gevent-aware ``multiprocessing.Process``-based child processes and gevent-cooperative inter-process communication. Isn't this achievable with just gevent+multiprocessing? ======================================================= Yes, but it requires care: On Unix, child process creation via Python's ``multiprocessing`` package in the context of ``gevent`` might yield an undesired event loop state in the child and most likely breaks your application in some way. Furthermore, blocking method calls such as ``join()`` on a ``multiprocessing.Process`` or the ``send()``/``recv()`` methods on a ``multiprocessing.Connection`` are not gevent-cooperative. ``gipc`` overcomes these challenges for you in a straight-forward fashion and allows for simple integration of child processes in your application -- on POSIX-compliant systems as well as on Windows.
