Sanic sse package that adds Server-Sent Events compability to sanic application.

Project description

Sanic Server-Sent Events extension

A Sanic extension for HTML5 server-sent events support, inspired by flask-sse and aiohttp-sse.


Installation process as simple as:

$ pip install sanic_sse


Server example:

from http import HTTPStatus
from sanic import Sanic
from sanic.response import json, json_dumps
from sanic.exceptions import abort
from sanic_sse import Sse

# This function is optional callback before sse request
# You can use it for authorization purpose or something else
async def before_sse_request(request):
    if request.headers.get("Auth", "") != "some_token":
        abort(HTTPStatus.UNAUTHORIZED, "Bad auth token")

sanic_app = Sanic()

# The default sse url is /sse but you can set it via init argument url.
    sanic_app, url="/events", before_request_func=before_sse_request
)  # or you can use init_app method

@sanic_app.route("/send", methods=["POST"])
async def send_event(request):
    # if channel_id is None than event will be send to all subscribers
    channel_id = request.json.get("channel_id")

    # optional arguments: event_id - str, event - str, retry - int
    # data should always be str
    # also you can use sse_send_nowait for send event without waiting
        await, channel_id=channel_id)
    except KeyError:
        abort(HTTPStatus.NOT_FOUND, "channel not found")

    return json({"status": "ok"})

if __name__ == "__main__":"", port=8000)

Client example (powered by sseclient-py and requests):

import json
import pprint
import requests
import sseclient

url = ""
# you may set channel_id parameter to receive special events
# url = ""

response = requests.get(url, stream=True)
client = sseclient.SSEClient(response)
for event in
