I’m really happy to show off our RavenDB 4.0 Python client, now on beta release. This is the second (after the .NET one, obviously) of the new clients that are upcoming. In the pipeline we have JVM, Node.JS, Go and Ruby.

I have fallen in love with Ruby over a decade ago, almost incidentally, mainly because the Boo syntax is based on that. And I loved Boo enough to write a book about it. So I’m really happy that we can now write Python code to talk to RavenDB, with all the usual bells and whistles that accompany a full fledge client to RavenDB.

This is a small example, showing basic CRUD, but a more complex sample is when we are using Python scripts to drive functionality in our application, using batch process scripts. Here is how this looks like:

This gives us the ability to effectively run scripts that will be notified by RavenDB when something happens in the database and react to them. This is a powerful tool at the hand of the system administrator, since they can use that to add functionality to the system with ease and with the ease of use of the Python language.
