WAMP (Web Application Messaging Protocol) utilities

Project description


This Python module implements parts of WAMP (Web Application Messaging Protocol).

TornWAMP provides means of having an API which interacts with WAMP-clients (e.g. Autobahn).

TornWAMP is not a WAMP Client nor a WAMP Router.

Although this code was implemented to be used with Websockets and Tornado (Web framework), it can also be used in other ways.

How to install

Using pip (to be available soon):

pip install tornwamp

Or from the source-code:

git clone
cd tornwamp
python install

Example of usage

An example of how to build a server using TornWAMP (

import tornado
import tornwamp

class SampleHandler(tornwamp.WAMPHandler):

application = tornado.web.Application([
    (r"/ws", SampleHandler),

if __name__ == "__main__":

Which can be run:


From the client perspective, you’d be able to use Autobahn JavaScript library to connect to the server using:

var connection = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://",
  realm: "sample"
