Balast client-side load-balancing

https://travis-ci.org/RadishLLC/balast.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/RadishLLC/balast/badge.svg?branch=master Documentation Status

Framework for client-side load-balancing for inter-process communication between cloud services.

It is inspired in large part by Netflix's Ribbon for java.

How to Use

In its most basic form, you can create a balast.Service with a static list of servers:

>>> import balast
>>> my_service = balast.Service(['127.0.0.1', '127.0.0.2'])

Now, just use it as you would use the requests package:

>>> response = my_service.get('/v1/path/to/resource')
<Response[200]>

NOTE: at this point in time, only the basic api features from the requests package are supported.
