Wwise Authoring API client.

Project description

Wwise Authoring API (Waapi) Client for Python

Decoupled autobahn WAMP client with support for plain options and bindable subscription callbacks.


  • Python 3.7+ (see tox.ini for versions tested)
  • Wwise instance with the Wwise Authoring API enabled (Project > User Preferences... > Enable Wwise Authoring API)


On Windows, it is recommended to use the Python Launcher for Windows which is installed with Python 3 from

  • Windows: py -3 -m pip install waapi-client
  • Other platforms: python3 -m pip install waapi-client


from waapi import WaapiClient

with WaapiClient() as client:
    result ="ak.wwise.core.getInfo")

The with statement automatically closes the connection and unregisters subscribers. To keep the connection alive, instantiate WaapiClient and call disconnect when you are done.

from waapi import WaapiClient

# Connect (default URL)
client = WaapiClient()

result ="ak.wwise.core.getInfo")

# Subscribe
handler = client.subscribe(
    lambda object: print("Object created: " + str(object))

# Bind a different callback at any time
def my_callback(object):
    print("Different callback: " + str(object))


# Unsubscribe

# Disconnect

Be aware that failing to call disconnect will result in the program to appear unresponsive, as the background thread running the connection will remain active.
