Below you can see various usage examples.

Connecting to server

from amcp_pylib.core import Client

client = Client()
client.connect("caspar-server.local", 6969)  # defaults to, 5250

Built-in support for asyncio module:

import asyncio
from amcp_pylib.core import ClientAsync

client = ClientAsync()
asyncio.new_event_loop().run_until_complete(client.connect("caspar-server.local", 6969))

Sending commands

from amcp_pylib.core import Client
from amcp_pylib.module.query import VERSION, BYE

client = Client()

response = client.send(VERSION(component="server"))

response = client.send(BYE())
<SuccessResponse(data=['2.0.7.e9fc25a Stable'],    code=201, code_description='VERSION')>
<InfoResponse(   data=['SERVER SENT NO RESPONSE'], code=0,   code_description='EMPTY')>

All supported protocol commands are listed and documented on CasparCG's wiki pages. Some commands may not be supported yet (in that case, please create issue (or pull ;) request).
