Easy to use TCP socket based on libevent

Project Description


EventSocket is a wrapper around standard Python sockets that provides a simple callback API for handling reading, accepting, closures and errors. It is built specifically for TCP sockets, though it may be compatible with any socket family that uses send and recv (i.e. not UDP).


See the scripts directory for examples of how to use EventSocket.

A client which runs simultaneous requests to an http server. Mimics behavior of siege, though it only supports a few options.
A simple proxy which forwards data from localhost to another host:port. Shows examples of setting up a server socket, handling an incoming connection and socket closures.


To install using pip,:

$ pip install py-eventsocket

If installing from source:

  • with development requirements (e.g. testing frameworks)

    pip install -r development.txt
  • without development requirements

    pip install -r requirements.txt
