See the Documentation for details of how Mara works.
Install Mara with pip install mara, then write your service using event handlers.
A minimal Mara service looks something like this:
from mara import Service, events service = Service() @service.listen(events.Receive) def receive(event): event.client.write(event.data) if __name__ == '__main__': service.run()
Save it as echo.py and run it:
python echo.py * Server listening on 127.0.0.1:9000
Override settings in code, or by passing arguments on the command line:
python echo.py --host=10.0.0.11 --port=8000 * Server listening on 10.0.0.11:8000
