Introduction to the fast new UnQLite Python Bindings


About a year ago, I blogged about some Python bindings I wrote for the embedded NoSQL document store UnQLite. One year later I'm happy to announce that I've rewritten the library using Cython and operations are, in most cases, an order of magnitude faster.

This was my first real attempt at using Cython and the experience was just the right mix of challenging and rewarding. I bought the O'Reilly Cython Book which came in super handy, so if you're interested in getting started with Cython I recommend picking up a copy.

In this post I'll quickly touch on the features of UnQLite, then show you how to use the Python bindings. When you're done reading you should hopefully be ready to use UnQLite in your next Python project.
