Presentation

https://secure.travis-ci.org/abourget/gevent-socketio.png?branch=master

gevent-socketio is a Python implementation of the Socket.IO protocol, developed originally for Node.js by LearnBoost and then ported to other languages. Socket.IO enables real-time web communications between a browser and a server, using a WebSocket-like API. One aim of this project is to provide a single gevent-based API that works across the different WSGI-based web frameworks out there (Pyramid, Pylons, Flask, web2py, Django, etc...). Only ~3 lines of code are required to tie-in gevent-socketio in your framework. Note: you need to use the gevent python WSGI server to use gevent-socketio.

Community, rise up!

ANNOUNCEMENT: This project is in need of a solid maintainer to navigate through the 27+ open Pull Requests, merge what needs to be merged, and continue on with newer developments. @abourget is not putting as much time as he'd like on this project these days. This project has nearly 1000 GitHub Stars.. it's used by major corporations. It's a great project for you to lead. Contact me on Twitter @bourgetalexndre to take more leadership.

Technical overview

Most of the gevent-socketio implementation is pure Python. There is an obvious dependency on gevent, and another on gevent-websocket. There are integration examples for Pyramid, Flask, Django and BYOF (bring your own framework!).
