PyAMF_ provides Action Message Format (AMF_) support for Python_ that is
compatible with the `Adobe Flash Player`_. It includes integration with
Python web frameworks like Django_, Pylons_, Twisted_, SQLAlchemy_,
web2py_ and more_.

The `Adobe Integrated Runtime`_ and `Adobe Flash Player`_ use AMF to
communicate between an application and a remote server. AMF encodes
remote procedure calls (RPC) into a compact binary representation that
can be transferred over HTTP/HTTPS or the `RTMP/RTMPS`_ protocol.
Objects and data values are serialized into this binary format, which
increases performance, allowing applications to load data up to 10 times
faster than with text-based formats such as XML or SOAP.

AMF3, the default serialization for ActionScript_ 3.0, provides various
advantages over AMF0, which is used for ActionScript 1.0 and 2.0. AMF3
sends data over the network more efficiently than AMF0. AMF3 supports
sending ``int`` and ``uint`` objects as integers and supports data types
that are available only in ActionScript 3.0, such as ByteArray_,
ArrayCollection_, ObjectProxy_ and IExternalizable_.
