A small, modular, transport and protocol neutral RPC library that, among other things, supports JSON-RPC and zmq.
Tinyrpc is being revised.
The current version will enter maintenance mode. I will keep it alive until Python2 is discontinued. It can be installed from pip using its version number e.g. pip install tinyrpc==0.9.1.
The main line of development will start with version 1.0.0. It will not try to remain compatible with the 0.9.x version. It will support Python3 only.
Main goals for version 1.0.0 are:
- good Python3 support.
- restructure the code to eliminate unnecessary dependencies.
- rework and extend the documentation with more examples.
In the end, all these libraries have their own dispatching interfaces and a custom implementation of handling jsonrpc.
tinyrpc aims to do better by dividing the problem into cleanly interchangeable parts that allow easy addition of new transport methods, RPC protocols or dispatchers.
You’ll quickly find that tinyrpc has more documentation and tests than core code, hence the name. See the documentation at <https://tinyrpc.readthedocs.org> for more details, especially the Structure-section to get a birds-eye view.
pip install tinyrpc
will install tinyrpc with its default dependencies.
Depending on the protocols and transports you want to use additional dependencies are required. You can instruct pip to install these dependencies by specifying extras to the basic install command.
pip install tinyrpc[httpclient, wsgi]
will install tinyrpc with dependencies for the httpclient and wsgi transports.
Available extras are:

|gevent||optional in RPCClient, required by RPCServerGreenlets|
|jsonext||optional in JSONRPCProtocol|
