Pylm is the Python implementation of PALM, a framework to build clusters of high performance backend components. It is presented in two different levels of abstraction. In the high level API you will find servers and clients that are functional out of the box. Use the high level API if you are interested in simple communication patterns like client-server, master-slave or a streaming pipeline. In the low level API there are a variety of small components that, once combined, they can be used to implement almost any kind of component. It’s what the high level API uses under the hood. Choose the low level API if you are interested in creating your custom component and your custom communication pattern.


Pylm requires a version of Python equal or higher than 3.4, and it is more thoroughly tested with Python 3.5.

Pylm is released under a dual licensing scheme. The source is released as-is under the the AGPL version 3 license, a copy of the license is included with the source. If this license does not suit you, you can purchase a commercial license from NFQ Solutions

Pylm is a project developed by Guillem Borrell for NFQ Solutions.
