Welcome to sqspy’s documentation!


Code coverage Updates Documentation Status Build status Language grade:: Python

A more pythonic approach to SQS producer/consumer utilities. Heavily inspired from the the pySqsListener package.


pip install sqspy


from sqspy import Consumer

class MyWorker(Consumer):
    def handle_message(self, body, attributes, message_attributes):

listener = MyWorker('Q1', error_queue='EQ1')

More documentation coming soon.


The mentioned project had a few issues which I faced while trying to implement at my organisation. The local environment testing setup was very flaky. The signatures for sqs_listener and sqs_producer were very different from each other.

This rewrite supports python 3.6+ versions only, and makes use of a lot of newer python features. It also makes use of service resources (for lazy calls) from the boto3 library instead of making calls via the low level client.
