Python STOMP client, supporting versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 of the protocol

Project description

PyPI version

“” 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: has officially ended support for Python2.x. See for more information.

Quick Start

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')

Documentation and Resources

The current version of 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: 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.

Testing has been perfunctorily tested on:

For testing locally, you’ll need to install docker (or podman). Once installed:

  1. Install dependencies:

    poetry install

  2. Create the docker (or podman) image:

    make docker-image (or make podman-image)

  3. Run the container:

    make run-docker (or make run-podman)

  4. Run unit tests:

    make test

  5. 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:

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.
