The official Python client for interacting with the Synse Server API.

Project description

Synse Client (Python)

The official Python client for the Synse API.

This package provides clients for Synse Server's HTTP and WebSocket API, making it easy to control and manage physical and virtual devices and infrastructure from Python.


The Synse Python client package can be installed with pip:

pip install synse


Below is a table describing the compatibility of Synse python client versions with Synse platform versions.

Synse v2 Synse v3
synse python client v1.x


In addition to the hosted documentation, the package source code is well-commented, providing basic information on client capabilities and the Synse data model.

For more information on the Synse platform, see the Synse Documentation.


Below is a basic example of using the HTTP API, showcasing getting the server status, getting the devices managed by the server, and reading from devices.

import asyncio
from synse import client

async def main():
    async with client.HTTPClientV3(host='localhost') as c:

        # Get the status
        resp = await c.status()
        print(f'Status:    {resp.status}')
        print(f'Timestamp: {resp.timestamp}')

        # Get all device IDs
        for device in await c.scan():
            print(f' • {}')

        # Read from all devices
        for reading in await
            print('{:<15}{} {}'.format(
                reading.unit['symbol']if reading.unit else '',

if __name__ == '__main__':

Running the above prints the following:

Note that while the client is async by default, individual commands may be run synchronously when wrapped with the client's sync method, e.g.

from synse import client

c = client.HTTPClientV3(host='localhost')

resp = c.sync(c.status())
