Allows the use of python sockets more easily

Project description


This library allows to easily create TCP Servers and Clients using Python sockets

If you want a secure connection, use the secure variant securesockets. It uses the pycryptodome library. It should be clear, that you need to install said library to use the secure variant.
If you have encountered a bug or have an idea, share it on github. For more help look up the docs (Note: They may be incomplete)


use pip install simplesockets to install this library.


This package also contains an example, an echo Server and Client:

if __name__ == "__main__":
    from simplesockets import TCPClient

    Client = TCPClient()
    Client.setup(target_ip="localhost", target_port=25567)  # prepares the Client
    Client.connect()  # connects the Client to the Server

    Client.autorecv()  # enables autorecv: automatically saves all incoming data in Client.recved_data,
    # return them with Client.return_recved_data()

    Client.send_data(b'Test')  # sends the text to the Server
    while True:
        if Client.event.new_data:  # checks if any data received
            data: list = Client.return_recved_data()  # returns the received data as a list
            for element in data:
                print(element.response)  # should print b'Test'
            break  # ends the while loop

if __name__ == "__main__":
    from simplesockets import TCPServer

    Server = TCPServer()
    Server.setup(ip='', port=25567)  # prepares the server
    Server.start()  # starts the server

    while True:
        if Server.event.new_data:  # checks if any data received
            data: list = Server.return_recved_data()  # returns the received data as a list
            for element in data:
                data: bytes = element.response  # element is a Socket_Response object,
                client = element.from_  # sets client to a Server_Client object
                Server.send_data(data, client)
