PyAPNs

A Python library for interacting with the Apple Push Notification service (APNs)

Installation

Either download the source from GitHub or use easy_install:

$ easy_install apns

Sample usage

from apns import APNs, Payload

apns = APNs(use_sandbox=True, cert_file='cert.pem', key_file='key.pem')

# Send a notification
token_hex = 'b5bb9d8014a0f9b1d61e21e796d78dccdf1352f23cd32812f4850b87'
payload = Payload(alert="Hello World!", sound="default", badge=1)
apns.gateway_server.send_notification(token_hex, payload)

# Get feedback messages
for (token_hex, fail_time) in apns.feedback_server.items():
    # do stuff with token_hex and fail_time

For more complicated alerts including custom buttons etc, use the PayloadAlert class. Example:

alert = PayloadAlert("Hello world!", action_loc_key="Click me")
payload = Payload(alert=alert, sound="default")

To send custom payload arguments, pass a dictionary to the custom kwarg of the Payload constructor.

payload = Payload(alert="Hello World!", custom={'sekrit_number':123})
