nntpserver.py

No-dependency, single file NNTP server library for developing modern, rfc3977-compliant (bridge) NNTP servers for python >=3.7. Developed as part of tade, a web discussion forum with mailing list/NNTP interfaces which powers the https://sic.pm link aggregator.

Included example servers are:

  • example_server.py returning hard-coded articles
  • hnnntp.py querying news.ycombinator.com (hackernews) API and caching results in an sqlite3 database. A public instance might be online at nessuent.xyz:564 (TLS only)
