ZTFY.zmq is a small ZTFY integration of ZeroMQ library.

It provides two main classes which are:

  • ZMQProcess, which is a ZMQ listening process, based on multiprocessing package.
  • ZMQMessageHandler, which is a simple ZMQ messages handler which delegates it's functionality to a ZMQ agnostic handling class.

When creating a new ZMQProcess instance, you only have to specify it's listening address and it's messages handler.

Default ZMQ process is based on request/response (REQ/REP) messages, but this can easily be overriden in custom subclasses.

Most of this package main concepts are based on Stefan Scherfke work. Thanks to him!


  • handle TERM signal to be sure parent processes can terminate ZMQ processes
  • added ZMQ process exit callback function, to be registered on application exit for any created process. This is required when using WSGI servers to end ZMQ processes in a clean way.
  • first release
