import bmemcached client = bmemcached.Client(('127.0.0.1:11211', ), 'user', 'password') client.set('key', 'value') print(client.get('key'))
Using it with distributed keys
import bmemcached client = bmemcached.DistributedClient( ('127.0.0.1:11211', ), 'user', 'password' ) client.set('key', 'value') print(client.get('key'))
Running the tests
First run memcached with:
memcached -S -vvv memcached -p5000 -S -vvv memcached -S -s/tmp/memcached.sock -vvv
This is to cover all tests with socket, standard port and non standard port.
Then, run the tests.
cd src_dir/ py.test
