Subpackage Descriptions
single Twisted ======= |pypi|_ |travis|_ |circleci|_ For information on changes in this release, see the [NEWS] file. What is this? ------------- Twisted is an event-based framework for internet applications, supporting Python 2.7 and 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 py27-tests # to run the tests for Python 2.7 $ tox -e py35-tests # to run the tests for Python 3.5 You can test running the test suite under the different reactors with the TWISTED_REACTOR environment variable:: $ env TWISTED_REACTOR=epoll tox -e py27-tests 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.
