Socket extension

Project description

—- sockData - send other data types via socket —-

This library can send other data types than just strings with socket. You can normally only send strings with socket. But with this library, you can send all data types that are supported by pickle.

How to use it:
instead of ‘<yourConnectedSocket>.send(<string>.encode())’ type: ‘import sockData.send sockData.send.sendData(<yourConnectedSocket>, <data>)’
instead of ‘<yourConnectedSocket>.recv(<bufferSize>)’ type: ‘import sockData.receive sockData.receive.recvData(<yourConnectedSocket>, <bufferSize>)’


import socket import sockData.receive

sock = socket.socket() sock.bind((“”, 50505)) sock.listen(1)

client, addr = sock.accept()

dictionary = sockData.receive.recvData(client, 1024) print(dictionary)


import socket import sockData.send

sock = socket.socket() sock.connect((“”, 50505))

dictionary = {“message”: {“from”: “”, “msg”: “hello!”}} sockData.send.sendData(sock, dictionary)
