A Guacamole python client library.

Project description

# PyGuacamole

A Python client library for communication with [Guacamole]( server (guacd)

[![Build Status](](

## Installation

Using pip

` $ sudo pip install pyguacamole `

From source

` $ sudo python install `

## Usage

GuacamoleClient handles communication with a running guacd server via [Guacamole Protocol](

GuacamoleClient must be used by a broker server which handles communication with a Javscript application running in the browser. GuacamoleClient implements the methods that enables communication with guacd server (send & receive).

First step should be establishing handshake with guacd server, then Broker server should handle instruction sending and receiving:

  • send: send instruction to guacd server
  • receive: receive instruction from guacd server

` >>> from guacamole.client import GuacamoleClient >>> client = GuacamoleClient('', 4822) >>> client.handshake(protocol='rdp', hostname='localhost', port=3389) `

Once instruction is received from guacd server, it should be sent immediately to the browser

` >>> instruction = client.receive() >>> instruction '4.size,1.0,4.1024,3.768;' `

and once instruction is sent from browser, it should be sent immediately to guacd server

` >>> instruction = '5.mouse,3.400,3.500;' >>> client.send(instruction) `

## Notes

PyGuacamole is released under the [MIT License]( and is based on the initial effort by Rescale [django-guacamole]( project.
