pyapns is an APNS provider that you install on your server and access through XML-RPC.
To install you will need Python, Twisted_ and pyOpenSSL_. It's also recommended to
install `python-epoll`_ for best performance (if epoll is not available, like on
Mac OS X, you may want to use another library, like `py-kqueue`_. If you like
easy_install try (it should take care of the dependancies for you)::

$ sudo pip install pyapns

pyapns is a service that runs persistently on your machine. To start it::

$ twistd -r epoll web --class=pyapns.server.APNSServer --port=7077

To get started right away, use the included client::

$ python
>>> from pyapns import configure, provision, notify
>>> configure({'HOST': 'http://localhost:7077/'})
>>> provision('myapp', open('cert.pem').read(), 'sandbox')
>>> notify('myapp', 'hexlified_token_str', {'aps':{'alert': 'Hello!'}})

A lot more documentation and the issue tracker can be found on the `github page
