Python STOMP client, supporting versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 of the protocol
“stomp.py” is a Python client library for accessing messaging servers (such as ActiveMQ, Artemis or RabbitMQ) using the STOMP protocol (STOMP v1.0, STOMP v1.1 and STOMP v1.2). It can also be run as a standalone, command-line client for testing. NOTE: Stomp.py has officially ended support for Python2.x. See python3statement.org for more information.
You can connect to a message broker running on the local machine, and send a message using the following example.
import stomp conn = stomp.Connection() conn.connect('admin', 'password', wait=True) conn.send(body=' '.join(sys.argv[1:]), destination='/queue/test') conn.disconnect()

Current test coverage report
The current version of stomp.py supports:
Python 3.x (Python2 support ended as of Jan 2020)
STOMP version 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2
There is also legacy 3.1.7 version using the old 3-series code (see 3.1.7 on PyPi and 3.1.7 on GitHub). This is no longer supported, but (at least as of 2018) there were still a couple of reports of this version still being used in the wild.
Note: stomp.py now follows semantic versioning:
MAJOR version for incompatible API changes,
MINOR version for functionality added in a backwards compatible manner, and
PATCH version for backwards compatible bug fixes.
stomp.py has been perfunctorily tested on:
Pivotal RabbitMQ (test_rabbitmq.py)
Apache ActiveMQ (test_activemq.py)
Apache ActiveMQ Artemis (test_artemis.py)
For testing locally, you’ll need to install docker (or podman). Once installed:
- Install dependencies:
- Create the docker (or podman) image:
make docker-image (or make podman-image)
- Run the container:
make run-docker (or make run-podman)
- Run stomp.py unit tests:
- Cleanup the container afterwards if you don’t need it any more:
make remove-docker (or make remove-podman)
- If you want to connect to the test services locally (other than from the included tests), you’ll want to add test domain names to your hosts file like so:
- 172.17.0.2 my.example.com172.17.0.2 my.example.org172.17.0.2 my.example.net
If you’re using podman and you want to access services via their private IP addresses, you’ll want to run your commands with:
podman unshare --rootless-netns <command>
so that <command> has access to the private container network. Service ports are also exposed to the host and can be accessed directly.
