Project description

[![Build Status](](

Python client for Google Cloud Messaging for Android (GCM)

RTFM [here](

gcm = GCM(API_KEY)
data = {'param1': 'value1', 'param2': 'value2'}

# Plaintext request
reg_id = '12345'
res = gcm.plaintext_request(registration_id=reg_id, data=data)

# JSON request
reg_ids = ['12', '34', '69']
res = gcm.json_request(registration_ids=reg_ids, data=data)

# Extra arguments
res = gcm.json_request(
registration_ids=reg_ids, data=data,
collapse_key='uptoyou', delay_while_idle=True, time_to_live=3600

# Handle responses. This raises exceptions when GCM servers return errors

* GCMMalformedJsonException
* GCMConnectionException
* GCMAuthenticationException
* GCMTooManyRegIdsException
