Dear Vision Researchers,

I am happy to announce the initial release of pysyncq. It is a
multiprocessing data structure for passing signalling messages between
different Python processes so that their collective state and timing are

A single Python process can only do one thing at a time, due to the Global
Interpreter Lock. But a psychophysics experiment may need separate
processes to accomplish many things at once e.g. generating stimuli with
PsychoPy, monitoring behavioural state, managing trial progress with a
state machine, and so on. pysyncq glues separate processes into a coherent
application by sending and waiting for simple string messages.

If this could help your research then find the installable package on PyPI
here: https://pypi.org/project/pysyncq

Online documentation is here: https://pysyncq.readthedocs.io

And the source code is here: https://github.com/jsdpag/pysyncq

Kind regards,
Jackson Smith
