Pusher websocket client for python

Project description

[![Build Status](](


pusherclient is a python module for handling pusher websockets


Simply run “python install”.

This module depends on websocket-client module available from: <>


Example of using this pusher client to consume websockets:

import pusherclient

# Add a logging handler so we can see the raw communication data
import logging
root = logging.getLogger()
ch = logging.StreamHandler(sys.stdout)

global pusher

# We can't subscribe until we've connected, so we use a callback handler
# to subscribe when able
def connect_handler(data):
    channel = pusher.subscribe('mychannel')
    channel.bind('myevent', callback)

pusher = pusherclient.Pusher(appkey)
pusher.connection.bind('pusher:connection_established', connect_handler)

while True:
    # Do other things in the meantime here...

Sending pusher events to a channel can be done simply using the pusher client supplied by pusher. You can get it here: <>

import pusher pusher.app_id = app_id pusher.key = appkey

p = pusher.Pusher() p[‘mychannel’].trigger(‘myevent’, ‘mydata’)


Built using the websocket-client module from <>. The ruby gem by Logan Koester which provides a similar service was also very helpful for a reference. Take a look at it here: <>.
