Asynchronous JSON-RPC client for Tornado

Project Description
jsonrpc_tornado: a compact asynchronous JSON-RPC client library for `Tornado framework <>`_

Main Features

* Python 2.7 & 3.4 compatible
* Exposes tornado.httpclient options
* Non-Blocking I/O
* Supports nested namespaces (eg. `app.users.getUsers()`)

pip install git+

A synchronous example:

.. code-block:: python

from jsonrpc_tornado import JSONRPCServer
from tornado.httpclient import HTTPClient

def fetch(server_url):
server = JSONRPCServer(server_url, http_client=HTTPClient,

# call some function on the server
result =, 2)

An example of non-blocking calls:

.. code-block:: python

from jsonrpc_tornado import JSONRPCServer, ProtocolError, TransportError
from tornado import gen

def fetch_coroutine(server_url):
server = JSONRPCServer(server_url, request_timeout=5.0)

# call some function on the server
result = yield, 2)
except ProtocolError as err:
logging.error('Some RPC error %s, %s', err.code, err)
except TransportError as err:
# err.args[1] refers to appropriate HTTPError
logging.error('Transport error %s', err.args[1])


* Tests


Based on `jsonrpc_requests <>` by `Giuseppe Ciotta <>`_.
