Compysition

What?

A Python application framework to build and manage asynchronous and highly concurrent event-driven data flow

I have created compysition to build off the simple way in which Wishbone managed message flow across multiple modules. Compysition expands upon this module registration method to provide abstracted multi-process communication via 0mq, as well as the ability for full cyclical communication for in-process request/response behavior in a lightweight, fast, and fully concurrent manner, using gevent greenlets and concurrency patterns to consume and output events

Compysition is currently new and in pre-Beta release. It will be undergoing many deep changes in the coming months The compysition project is built upon the original work of the Wishbone project

Variations from the traditional Actor Model

The traditional and strict actor model requires that all actors have exactly one inbox and one outbox. I found that this was overly constraining for creating and crafting complex data flow models. So compysition inherently supports multiple inboxes and multiple outboxes on every single actor.

To put it in actor model terms, every actor is also a "funnel" and a "fanout".

The default behavior, unless stated otherwise in the module documentation, is that all modules will send/copy an event to ALL connected outbox queues

Full Circle WSGI Example

For the example below, we want to execute an XML transformation on a request and send it back to the client in a fast and concurrent way. All steps and executions are spun up as spawned greenlet on the router

from compysition import Director
from compysition.actors import WSGI, BasicAuth, Transformer

from myproject.actors import SomeRequestExecutor
from myprojectresources import my_xsl_files as xsls

director = Director()
wsgi                    = director.register_actor(WSGIServer, "wsgi")
auth                    = director.register_actor(BasicAuth, "auth")
submit_transform        = director.register_actor(Transformer, "submit_transform", xsls['submit'])
acknowledge_transform   = director.register_actor(Transformer, "acknowledge_transform", my_xsl_files['acknowledge.xsl'])
request_executor        = director.register_actor(SomeRequestExecutor, "request_executor")

director.connect_queue(wsgi,                    auth)
director.connect_queue(auth,                    submit_transform)
director.connect_queue_error(auth,              wsgi)                   # Redirect auth errors to the wsgi server as a 401 Unaothorized Error
director.connect_queue(submit_transform,        request_executor)
director.connect_queue_error(submit_transform,  wsgi)
director.connect_queue(request_executor,        acknowledge_transform)
director.connect_queue(acknowledge_transform,   wsgi)

director.start()

Note how modular each component is. It allows us to configure any steps in between class method executions and add any additional executions, authorizations, or transformations in between the request and response by simply adding it into the message execution flow

One-way messaging example

from compysition import Director
from compysition.actors import TestEvent, STDOUT

director = Director()
event_generator = director.register_actor(TestEvent, "event_generator", interval=1)
output_one      = director.register_actor(STDOUT, "output_one", prefix="I am number one: ", timestamp=True)
output_two      = director.register_actor(STDOUT, "output_two", prefix="I am number two: ", timestamp=True)

director.connect_queue(event_generator, [output_one, output_two])

director.start()

Output:
        [2015-02-13 16:56:35.850659] I am number two: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:35.850913] I am number one: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:36.851588] I am number two: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:36.851856] I am number one: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:37.852456] I am number two: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:37.852737] I am number one: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:38.858107] I am number two: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:38.858400] I am number one: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:39.860292] I am number two: test
        [2015-02-13 16:56:39.860570] I am number one: test

ZeroMQ MajorDomo Implementation Example

The following example is a single-process example of the multi-process MajorDomo Protocal from ZMQ. The pieces noted could all be run outside this process in their own compysitionscript, scalable across multiple hosts and cores

from compysition.actors import MDPClient, MDPWorker, MDPBroker, WSGI, MDPBrokerRegistrationService, STDOUT, Data
from compysition import Director

director = Director()

mdp_client          = director.register_actor(MDPClient,                     "mdp_client")
mdp_broker          = director.register_actor(MDPBroker,                     "mdp_broker")     # This could be it's own process
mdp_regservice      = director.register_actor(MDPBrokerRegistrationService,  "mdp_regservice") # This could be it's own process
mdp_worker          = director.register_actor(MDPWorker,                     "mdp_worker", "test_service") # This (These) would be their own processes
stdout              = director.register_actor(STDOUT,                        "stdout")
data                = director.register_actor(Data,                          "data", data="Hello, this has been a test")

wsgi                = director.register_actor(WSGI,                          "wsgi", run_server=True, address="0.0.0.0", port=7000)
director.register_log_actor(STDOUT,                                          "stdoutmodule", timestamp=True)

director.connect_queue(wsgi,             mdp_client)
director.connect_queue(mdp_worker,       data)
director.connect_queue(data,             mdp_worker)
director.connect_queue(mdp_client,       wsgi)

director.start()

After running this process, initiating a http request to http://127.0.0.1:7000/test_service would show the dataflow across MDP components
