What is this?

Twisted is an event-based framework for internet applications, supporting Python 3.5+. It includes modules for many different purposes, including the following:

  • twisted.web
    : HTTP clients and servers, HTML templating, and a WSGI server
  • twisted.conch
    : SSHv2 and Telnet clients and servers and terminal emulators
  • twisted.words
    : Clients and servers for IRC, XMPP, and other IM protocols
  • twisted.mail
    : IMAPv4, POP3, SMTP clients and servers
  • twisted.positioning
    : Tools for communicating with NMEA-compatible GPS receivers
  • twisted.names
    : DNS client and tools for making your own DNS servers
  • twisted.trial
    : A unit testing framework that integrates well with Twisted-based code.

Twisted supports all major system event loops --

select
(all platforms),
poll
(most POSIX platforms),
epoll
(Linux),
kqueue
(FreeBSD, macOS), IOCP (Windows), and various GUI event loops (GTK+2/3, Qt, wxWidgets). Third-party reactors can plug into Twisted, and provide support for additional event loops.

Installing

To install the latest version of Twisted using pip::

$ pip install twisted

Additional instructions for installing this software are in

the installation instructions 
_.

Documentation and Support

Twisted's documentation is available from the

Twisted Matrix website 
_. This documentation contains how-tos, code examples, and an API reference.

Help is also available on the

Twisted mailing list 
_.

There is also a pair of very lively IRC channels,

#twisted
(for general Twisted questions) and
#twisted.web
(for Twisted Web), on
chat.freenode.net
.

Unit Tests

Twisted has a comprehensive test suite, which can be run by

tox
::

$ tox -l # to view all test environments $ tox -e nocov # to run all the tests without coverage $ tox -e withcov # to run all the tests with coverage $ tox -e alldeps-withcov-posix # install all dependencies, run tests with coverage on POSIX platform

You can test running the test suite under the different reactors with the

TWISTED_REACTOR
environment variable::

$ env TWISTED_REACTOR=epoll tox -e alldeps-withcov-posix

Some of these tests may fail if you:

  • don't have the dependencies required for a particular subsystem installed,
  • have a firewall blocking some ports (or things like Multicast, which Linux NAT has shown itself to do), or
  • run them as root.

Static Code Checkers

You can ensure that code complies to Twisted

coding standards 
_::

$ tox -e lint # run pre-commit to check coding stanards $ tox -e mypy # run MyPy static type checker to check for type errors

Or, for speed, use pre-commit directly::

$ pipx run pre-commit run
