You must have a Spread daemon running for it to work. You use the Spread
api (it supports C, java, python, perl, and others) to access the
services provided by the daemon. 

I'm not sure what exactly your architecture is, or how it works, but my
first thought would be that your daemon acts like a client to the Spread
daemon. So you use the Spread API calls in your daemon just like usual
for Spread applications. Then you just have a spread daemon running
along side your daemon and it should just work.

Their is a python api, you can find it at:

However it is just a client api, you still need to have a daemon
