dAmn connection library

Project Description

dAmn Viper is a Python package created by photofroggy.

This package provides an API for connecting to and interacting with the dAmn chats. That is, deviantART’s messaging network chats.

This branch of dAmn Viper is only known to work with Python 2.7 and up due to use of the twisted library.

Brief example

Creating a client quickly for dAmn is quite easy using dAmn Viper. Below is one of the simplest examples of a client that simply connects, and tries to stay connected:

from twisted.internet import reactor
from dAmnViper.base import dAmnClient

dAmn = dAmnClient()

dAmn.user.username = 'username'
dAmn.user.token = 'authtoken'
dAmn.autojoin = ['Botdom']

dAmn.on_connection_start = lambda connector: reactor.start()
dAmn.teardown = lambda: reactor.stop()

dAmn.start()

That is all that is required! It is advised that you use the dAmnClient class when making applications that connect to dAmn. Chat bots and full clients can be made by extending the dAmnClient class to add functionality, as shown in the examples provided.

Dependencies

A disadvantage of using twisted is the acquisition of dependencies. This means that applications using dAmn Viper will depend on twisted as well as dAmn Viper.

It is more of an issue for end users, as they will not want to spend time installing multiple dependencies. This problem can, however, be eleminated by creating installers for applications using dAmn Viper.

As such, this is somewhat a non-point, but it does mean an installer has to be created to achieve easy setup for end users. Fortunately, installers are something which users tend to be ok at using, so long as they aren’t too complicated. Having an installer which downloads and installs multiple dependencies may complicate things too much. We’ll see.

Feedback

Feedback on this branch of dAmn Viper would be very much appreciated. Please send any feedback to my deviantART account via notes, or submit something on github, I dunno.

Thanks for reading.
