NEW API addition: poll_decorator(). Per user-request, you can now use @poll_decorator() as a way to wrap a function with poll().
The api otherwise remains the same. See the new function poll_decorator(). All options and arguments remain equivalent in poll()/poll_decorator(). Fully backward compatible change.
No API changes. Updated documentation to state that timeout=0 or timeout=None is equivalent to setting poll_forever=True.
No API changes. Presentation/documentations changes only. Should pose no backwards compatibility risk.
Added /docs directory written for sphinx. Setup a readthedocs site from the sphinx build.
Moved README contents to be largely inside the /docs/.
Updated some of the comments strings inside polling2 module.
‘Begin poll(*)’ message is logged when poll() is called. Hopefully this means the user doesn’t feel the need to write a message before every call to poll() to indicate how long the poll() might take.
Add is_value() function. A function that allows a user to easily build a custom checker, like is_truthy(), but for any value.
Add log_error parameter to the poll signature. Enables logging of ignored exceptions.
Add log_value() decorator and log parameter to poll signature. Enables logging of return_values.
Fixed polling function from waiting another sleep whenever the max_tries value has reached zero.
Remove test-only dependencies from requirements to install the package.
No longer testing on python 2.6. Add support for travis testing on python 3.6 and pypy 3.5.
Creation of polling2, forked from polling as previous maintainer seems to be ignoring issues and pull-requests.
`*a, **k`from poll signature. This allows Type errors to be raised if caller spells arguments into correctly, making bugs easier to find.
Support Python 3.4+
Allow users to access a “last” attribute on the exceptions. This should hold the last evaluated value, which is the more common use case than getting the first value.
Fix a bug that actually ran 1 more time than value specified by max_tries
