A Python Matrix client library, designed according to sans I/O principles.

Project description

nio

Build Status codecov license Documentation Status #nio

nio is a multilayered Matrix client library. The underlying base layer doesn't do any network IO on its own, but on top of that is a full fledged batteries-included asyncio layer using aiohttp. File IO is only done if you enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE).

Documentation

The full API documentation for nio can be found at https://matrix-nio.readthedocs.io

Features

nio has most of the features you'd expect in a Matrix library, but it's still a work in progress.

  • ✅ transparent end-to-end encryption (EE2E)
  • ✅ encrypted file uploads & downloads
  • ✅ manual and emoji verification
  • ✅ custom authentication types
  • ✅ well-integrated type system
  • ✅ kick, ban and unban
  • ✅ typing notifications
  • ✅ message redaction
  • ✅ token based login
  • ✅ user registration
  • ✅ read receipts
  • ✅ live syncing
  • m.tags
  • ❌ python 2.7 support
  • ❌ cross-signing support
  • ❌ user deactivation (#112)
  • ❌ in-room emoji verification
  • ❌ room upgrades and m.room.tombstone events (#47)

Installation

To install nio, simply use pip:

$ pip install matrix-nio

Note that this installs nio without end-to-end encryption support. For e2ee support, python-olm is needed which requires the libolm C library (version 3.x). On Debian and Ubuntu one can use apt-get to install package libolm-dev. On Fedora one can use dnf to install package libolm-devel. On MacOS one can use brew to install package libolm. Make sure version 3 is installed.

After libolm has been installed, the e2ee enabled version of nio can be installed using pip:

$ pip install "matrix-nio[e2e]"

Additionally, a docker image with the e2ee enabled version of nio is provided in the docker/ directory.
