Welcome to the lockable documentation
Lockable is a service providing synchronization locking for distributed systems. Think of it as
flock but for distributed systems.
How it works
The core idea is that
lockable provides a global server which keeps track of whether a lock has been acquired or not. Using these locks, processes can coordinate access to shared resources such as files or queues.
lockable, you don't have to worry about setting up and running a database or a service like Consul. This makes
lockable ideal for quick development and iteration.
