A library that allows communication via the Signal IM service using the signald daemon.

Project description


pipeline status

pysignald is a Python client for the excellent signald project, which in turn is a command-line client for the Signal messaging service.

pysignald allows you to programmatically send and receive messages to Signal.


You can install pysignald with pip:

$ pip install pysignald


Just make sure you have signald installed. Here's an example of how to use pysignald:

from signald import Signal

s = Signal("+1234567890")

# If you haven't registered/verified signald, do that first:
s.verify("sms code")

s.send_message("+1098765432", "Hello there!")

for message in s.receive_messages():

You can also use the chat decorator interface:

from signald import Signal

s = Signal("+1234567890")

@s.chat_handler("hello")  # This is case-insensitive.
def hello(message, match):
    return "Hello there!"

@s.chat_handler(re.compile("my name is (.*)"))  # This is case-sensitive.
def name(message, match):
    return "Hello %s." %



pysignald also supports different socket paths:

s = Signal("+1234567890", socket_path="/var/some/other/socket.sock")

It supports TCP sockets too, if you run a proxy. For example, you can proxy signald's UNIX socket over TCP with socat:

$ socat -d -d TCP4-LISTEN:15432,fork UNIX-CONNECT:/var/run/signald/signald.sock

Then in pysignald:

s = Signal("+1234567890", socket_path=("your.serveri.ip", 15432))
