pyramid_sockjs is a gevent-based SockJS integration for Pyramid. SockJS interface is implemented as a pyramid route. pyramid_sockjs runs inside a WSGI application rather than WSGI server. This means all of your previous WSGI/Pyramid experience will be relevant. Its possible to create any number of different sockjs routes, ie /__sockjs__/* or /mycustom-sockjs/*. You can provide different session implementation and management for each sockjs route.

Gevent based server is required for pyramid_sockjs. For example gunicorn with gevent worker. pyramid_sockjs provides simple gevent based paster server runner:

use = egg:pyramid_sockjs#server
host =
port = 8080

Example of sockjs route:

def main(global_settings, **settings):
    config = Configurator(settings=settings)

    return config.make_wsgi_app()

Client side code:

<script src=""></script>
    var sock = new SockJS('http://localhost:8080/__sockjs__');

    sock.onopen = function() {

    sock.onmessage = function(obj) {

    sock.onclose = function() {
