persistent data-structures.

What is burrahobbit?

burrahobbit offers you efficient persistent (immutable) data-structures with time complexity similar to the builtin mutable collections. Currently, persistent sets and dicts are offered by burrahobbit.

Which versions of Python are supported?

burrahobbit supports and is continuously tested with all CPython releases ranging from 2.4 to 3.2; additionally, the test-suite is also run with PyPy 1.4.

I'm in! How do I install it?

If you have pip available on your system, burrahobbit can conveniently be installed because it is available in the pypi (make sure you have the required permissions on the system; in case you are installing the package into a global directory you will probably need to execute the command in a root-shell or prepend it with sudo, depending on your system configuration).

Install burrahobbit with pip
$ pip install burrahobbit 
The same holds true for easy_installed (component of setuptools) – the permission note for the pip way also applies here.
Install burrahobbit with easy_install
$ easy_install burrahobbit
If none of these options work for you, just grab the source tarball and execute the following command.
Manual install
~/burrahobbit-0.1.0/ $ python setup.py install
