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:

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
from tornwamp import handler

class SampleHandler(handler.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"
