Python asyncio library for Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP).

Project description

Python asyncio library for Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP).

SSDP is a UPnP sub standard. For more information see:


python3 -m pip install ssdp


import asyncio
import socket

import ssdp

class MyProtocol(ssdp.SimpleServiceDiscoveryProtocol):

    def response_received(self, response, addr):
        print(response, addr)

    def request_received(self, request, addr):
        print(request, addr)

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
connect = loop.create_datagram_endpoint(MyProtocol, family=socket.AF_INET)
transport, protocol = loop.run_until_complete(connect)

notify = ssdp.SSDPRequest('NOTIFY')
notify.sendto(transport, (MyProtocol.MULTICAST_ADDRESS, 1982))
