A microservices framework for Python that lets service developers concentrate on application logic and encourages testability.

A nameko service is just a class:

.. code-block:: python


from nameko.rpc import rpc

class GreetingService: name = "greeting_service"

def hello(self, name):
    return "Hello, {}!".format(name)

You can run it in a shell:

.. code-block:: shell

$ nameko run helloworld
starting services: greeting_service

And play with it from another:

.. code-block:: pycon

$ nameko shell
>>> n.rpc.greeting_service.hello(name="ナメコ")
'Hello, ナメコ!'
