SocketIO server based on the Gevent pywsgi server, a Python network library

Project description

Presentation

https://secure.travis-ci.org/abourget/gevent-socketio.png?branch=master

gevent-socketio is a Python implementation of the Socket.IO protocol, developed originally for Node.js by LearnBoost and then ported to other languages. Socket.IO enables real-time web communications between a browser and a server, using a WebSocket-like API. One aim of this project is to provide a single gevent-based API that works across the different WSGI-based web frameworks out there (Pyramid, Pylons, Flask, web2py, Django, etc…). Only ~3 lines of code are required to tie-in gevent-socketio in your framework. Note: you need to use the gevent python WSGI server to use gevent-socketio.

Technical overview

Most of the gevent-socketio implementation is pure Python. There is an obvious dependency on gevent, and another on gevent-websocket. There are integration examples for Pyramid, Flask, Django and BYOF (bring your own framework!).
