pysophia documentation

This package provides Python bindings for sophia, a ligthweight DBM-like database. Available operations on a database are inserting a key-value pair, deleting it, or retrieving a value given its key. It is also possible to traverse the records of a database, in ascending or descending order.


First install libsophia using this script (to be run from the source package directory if you have the source distribution, or from /tmp or similar). Then download the bindings (preferably from Github), and install them with:

python install

If you want to check how the library performs, look at the benchmarks on the website of the author, and run the script located in the tests directory of this package, which will give you an idea of what performance you can expect from the module on your specific hardware.
