Code for creating Twisted JSON-RPC servers and clients.

Project description



txJSON-RPC currently has the following dependencies:



If you want to develop for txJSON-RPC or use the latest code we’re working on, you can install from the sources. You’ll need bzr installed, and then just do the following:

$ bzr branch lp:txjsonrpc
$ cd txjsonrpc
$ sudo python install

Easy Install

You can use the setuptools easy_install script to get txSpore on your system:

$ sudo easy_install txJSON-RPC

Manual Download

You can manually download the source tarball from the Python Package Index by visiting the following URL:

You’ll need to untar and gunzip the source, cd into the source directory, and then you can do the usual:

$ sudo python install

Checking the Source

Once installed, you can test the source code by executing this from the top-level source directory:

$ trial txjsonrpc

That will run the test suite and report on the success and failure of any unit tests.



In the top-level source directory for txJSON-RPC, there is an examples directory. This contains the following:

  • Client and server examples for twisted.web-based JSON-RPC.

  • Client and server examples for Netstring TCP JSON-RPC as well as code shoing how to use subhandlers for the TCP code, since this differs from the XML-RPC/JSON-RPC HTTP-based subhandlers.

Examining each of the Python files in the example directories is the best way to get a sense of how to use txJSON-RPC.


Known Issues

  • txJSON-RPC doesn’t yet support the proposed v2.0 JSON-RPC protocol.

  • There’s a typo in txjsonrpc.meta (“creatig”).

  • The docs are built with an extraneous “README” added to the text as a result of the README file getting renamed to README.rst.

  • Need to add a git mirror on Google Code.



  • add version support in proxy constructor and callRemote method

  • add unit tests for proxy’s use of version in constructor as well as callRemote

  • pull out anything that has to do with setting the payload (e.g., method/params dict) and put it in jsonrpclib

  • clean up error checking, now that errors are going in the payload under the “error” key.

JSON-RPC over HTTP (web)

  • add unit tests for proxy’s use of version in constructor as well as callRemote


  • return results in simpljson dicts with possible keeys of “result” or “error”

  • use simplesjon’s hook for creating appropriate JS objects from hints in the results


txJSON-RPC 0.3.1
