An asynchronous Twitter API client for Python 3.6+

Project description Documentation Status


To install this module simply run:

pip install 'peony-twitter[all]'

This will install all the modules required to make peony run out of the box. You might feel like some of them are not fit for your needs. Check Advanced installation for more information about how to install only the modules you will need.

Authorize your client

You can use peony.oauth_dance to authorize your client:

>>> from peony.oauth_dance import oauth_dance
>>> from peony import PeonyClient
>>> client = PeonyClient(**tokens)

This should open a browser to get a pin to authorize your application.

Getting started

You can easily create a client using the class PeonyClient. Make sure to get your api keys and access tokens from Twitter’s application management page and/or to Authorize your client

import asyncio

# NOTE: the package name is peony and not peony-twitter
from peony import PeonyClient

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

# create the client using your api keys
client = PeonyClient(consumer_key=YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY,

# this is a coroutine
req ="I'm using Peony!!")

# run the coroutine


Read Peony’s documentation on Read The Docs.

There is a #peony channel on the Libera IRC network for support and discussion about Peony. You can use Libera’s webchat to connect to this channel from your web browser.

To run the tests run:


The first time this command is run it will install all the dependencies which can take a bit of time.

The tests include a code style test. The code style is mostly PEP8, the only exception so far being long urls included in docstrings and some imports that are not at the top of the file (because they can’t be there).

You can also use tox to run the tests, a configuration file is provided:
