rfunduk / setup-WxH.applescript
Created Aug 22, 2013
Example AppleScript for re-arranging commonly used windows for a screen resolution. Eg. switching between laptop at 1440x900 and external monitor at 2560x1440 is a big pain, requiring a lot of moving around and resizing of windows. So instead you adapt this script, make a setup-1440x900.applescript and a setup-2560x1440.applescript, and run them…

Sometimes you need a file-like object when all you have is an iterator, for instance when using psycopg2's cursor.copy_from. This class will handle the impedance mismatch.
import io
import sys
class IteratorFile(io.TextIOBase):
""" given an iterator which yields strings,
return a file like object for reading those strings """
def __init__(self, it):
self._it = it
self._f = io.StringIO()

asyncio + uvloop echo server benchmark

asyncio + uvloop echo server benchmark

This is an attempt at a bare minimum client/server benchmark of asyncio with optional use of uvloop. On my 2015 macbook pro, I get almost 2.5X improvement using uvloop in the server.

The client runs PARALLEL tasks at once. Running only a single task results in about 1/8 the throughput of 100 simultaneous tasks.

# with uvloop
$ python
satisfied 100000 requests in 1.41021 seconds (70911.42 reqs/s)

This code snippet shows how to wrap a concurrent.futures.Executor class to provide a limited queue size.
from threading import BoundedSemaphore
from concurrent.futures import ProcessPoolExecutor
class MaxQueuePool:
"""This Class wraps a concurrent.futures.Executor
limiting the size of its task queue.
If `max_queue_size` tasks are submitted, the next call to submit will block
until a previously submitted one is completed.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
