       with ProcessPoolExecutor() as pool:
           futures = [pool.submit(index_chunk, tree, tree_indexers, paths) for
                      paths in chunked(unignored, 50)]
   def index_chunk(tree, tree_indexers, paths):
       """Do a bunch of computation, and throw the results in elasticsearch."""
   def show_progress(futures):
       """Show progress and yield results as futures complete."""
       num_jobs = len(futures)
       for num_done, future in enumerate(as_completed(futures), 1):
           print num_done, 'of', num_jobs, 'jobs done.'
           yield future
  • (ErikRose) Setuptools entry points are underdocumented but a really nice, easy, supported-everywhere way to do a plugin architecture, even an internal registry.
   # setup.py
       entry_points={'dxr.plugins': ['urllink = dxr.plugins.urllink',
                                     'buglink = dxr.plugins.buglink']}
   # elsewhere.py
   plugins = dict((point.name, point.load()) for point in
   # plugins is now {'urllink': <module dxr.plugins.urllink>,
   #                 'buglink': <module dxr.plugins.buglink>}
