Kenosis 0.96

Kenosis is a fully-distributed p2p RPC system built on top of XMLRPC.
Kenosis is a fully-distributed p2p RPC system built on top of XMLRPC. Nodes are automatically connected to each other via a Kademlia-style network, and can route RPC requests efficiently to any online node. Kenosis project is reliable and well-tested.

Nodes are identified by 160-bit addresses.
Nodes can find other nodes given an address and can find the set of nodes with addresses nearest to a given address.
Nodes can route RPC requests efficiently to any online node.

Kenosis is zero-defect software

Too many peer-to-peer programs and libraries have initially seemed to work but floundered under increasing complexity. One of our goals for kenosis was to make reliable software that would Just Work.
Every line of Kenosis has been subjected to extensive unit testing and simulation testing.
Kenosis is designed from the ground up for simplicity, stability, and scalability.
Kenosis does one thing and does it well. It is our hope that others will use Kenosis as a foundation for new and exciting peer-to-peer applications.

Compatibility

Kenosis must work on a wide range of platforms because we want it to provide a solid basis for many p2p applications.
Kenosis is written in pure python
Kenosis has been tested on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Kenosis works in almost any networking environnment, including restrictive corporate firewalls, because it uses XMLRPC for its network communications. It can also work with an HTTP proxy.
