Networking Library for Peng3d

Project description

Documentation Status

peng3dnet is a TCP-Based networking Library designed for use with peng3d.

It uses Length-Prefixing to cut the raw TCP Stream into packets, which are usually MessagePack-encoded Python objects.

peng3dnet has been tested and is developed under Python 3.5, however it should work with newer versions as well. Python 2.x support is currently not planned, but may be possible by rewriting small parts of the code.


The current documentation is available here on ReadTheDocs.

The Sphinx-based source for the documentation is available in the docs/ subdirectory. Documentation for specific methods and classes is usually found in the docstring of the method/class.


Currently, peng3dnet requires only two modules: - bidict, as PyPI package bidict - msgpack-python or u-msgpack-python, available under the same name on PyPI

Note that msgpack-python may be faster, since it has a C-extension. In cases where C-extensions cannot be used, u-msgpack-python can be used, since it should work on all platforms and is written in pure Python.

Installation via pip

If possible, this method of installation is to be preferred.

Installation via pip is simple:

pip install peng3dnet

Note that on some systems it may be necessary to use sudo pip install peng3dnet if the above command fails.

Installation via

If possible, use pip instead.

Installation via

python install

Note that using this method requires manually installing the dependencies and downloading of the repository. It may also be necessary to use sudo python install if the above command fails.

Download files
