Python is a mature dynamic language whose interpreters can interact with all major computing platforms today.
execnet provides a share-nothing model with channel-send/receive communication for distributing execution across many Python interpreters across version, platform and network barriers. It has a minimal and fast API targetting the following uses:
The current 1.0 series aims at basic API stabilization, improved tracing and robust termination.
The 1.1 series will target setting up permanent networks and offering unix-shell-like capabilities to spawn processes and applications.
execnet was conceived and is actively developed by Holger Krekel. The package is licensed under the GPL Version 2 or later, at your choice. Armin Rigo and Benjamin Peterson have done major contributions which are MIT-licensed.
