hyperframe: HTTP/2 Framing for Python

hyperframe is a pure-Python tool for working with HTTP/2 frames. This library allows you to create, serialize, and parse HTTP/2 frames.

Working with it is easy:

import hyperframe.frame

f = hyperframe.frame.DataFrame(stream_id=5)
f.data = b'some binary data'
f.flags.add('END_STREAM')
f.flags.add('PADDED')
f.padding_length = 30

data = f.serialize()

new_frame, length = hyperframe.frame.Frame.parse_frame_header(data[:9])
new_frame.parse_body(memoryview(data[9:9 + length]))

hyperframe is pure-Python, contains no external dependencies, and runs on a wide variety of Python interpreters and platforms. Made available under the MIT license, why write your own frame parser?
