Access your gotify server.

Project description


PyPI Python License Code Style CI Codecov

python-gotify is a python client library to interact with your gotify server without having to handle requests manually.

It offers both a synchronous and an asynchronous interface powered by httpx. Optionally, push messages can be received via websockets.


python-gotify can be installed from PyPi using pip:

pip install gotify

If you want to listen to push messages, the additional dependency on websockets can be installed with

pip install gotify[stream]


To send messages:

from gotify import Gotify

gotify = Gotify(

    "Hello you wonderful people!",
    title="Hello World",

Note: To send messages you need to create a new application and set app_token accordingly.

You can also manage things like applications:

from gotify import Gotify

gotify = Gotify(

app = gotify.create_application("foobar", description="test application")

print("Created new application:", app)

would result in

Created new application: {'id': 42, 'token': 'ArHD_yGYf63-A13', 'name': 'foobar', 'description': 'test application', 'internal': False, 'image': 'static/defaultapp.png'}

Note: For most things you need to create a new client and set client_token accordingly.

This library tries to implement every endpoint of the gotify API as an instance method of the Gotify class.

More details about the capabilities of gotify's API can be found in its API documentation.

Note: since I don't use any gotify plugins, plugin-related functions are currently completely untested.

Async Usage

python-gotify's asynchronous client works similar to the synchronous one, you just need to await all methods. It is recommended to use it as a context manager if you want to send multiple requests.

import asyncio
from gotify import AsyncGotify

async def send_message_async():
    async_gotify = AsyncGotify(

    await async_gotify.create_message(
        "This message was sent asynchronously!",
        title="Hello Asynchronous World",

Reusing HTTP sessions

If you want to send multiple requests to a server you can use both Gotify and AsyncGotify as a (asynchronous) context manager which will use a single HTTP session to reduce some connection overhead.

with Gotify(...) as gotify:

async with AsyncGotify(...) as async_gotify:

Receive push messages via websockets

AsyncGotify implements gotify's /stream endpoint which allows to receive push messages via websockets. To use it make sure you installed python-gotify with pip install gotify[stream]. is implemented as an asynchronous generator that waits for incoming messages and yields Message dictionaries.

import asyncio
from gotify import AsyncGotify

async def log_push_messages():
    async_gotify = AsyncGotify(

    async for msg in


Pull requests are welcome. For major changes, please open an issue first to discuss what you would like to change.

Please use nox to format, lint, type-check and test your code by calling nox in your project directory.

The test suite downloads a server binary and starts a preconfigured test server on port 30080 (this doesn't work on MacOS). If you encounter issues starting the test server, please create an issue.
