How do I gzip compress a string in Python?

Python3 version of Sven Marnach’s 2011 answer:

import gzip
exampleString = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijmortenpunnerudengelstadrocksklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvabcdefghijklmnopqrstuv123'
compressed_value = gzip.compress(bytes(exampleString,'utf-8'))
plain_string_again  = gzip.decompress(compressed_value)

Using Celery With Flask

Working with Flask and Celery

The integration of Celery with Flask is so simple that no extension is required. A Flask application that uses Celery needs to initialize the Celery client as follows:

from flask import Flask
from celery import Celery

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config['CELERY_BROKER_URL'] = 'redis://localhost:6379/0'
app.config['CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND'] = 'redis://localhost:6379/0'

celery = Celery(app.name, broker=app.config['CELERY_BROKER_URL'])
celery.conf.update(app.config)

As you can see, Celery is initialized by creating an object of class Celery, and passing the application name and the connection URL for the message broker, which I put in app.config under key CELERY_BROKER_URL. This URL tells Celery where the broker service is running. If you run something other than Redis, or have the broker on a different machine, then you will need to change the URL accordingly.
