What is Twisted?

Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python and licensed under the MIT license.

See the FAQ for commonly asked questions about Twisted.

Core howto index - You probably want to read this.

Twisted Projects

Like any engine, Twisted has many "moving parts." Twisted Projects is our name for these components of Twisted. Taken together, they form the whole of Twisted.

Twisted projects variously support TCP, UDP, SSL/TLS, multicast, Unix sockets, a large number of protocols (including HTTP, NNTP, IMAP, SSH, IRC, FTP, and others), and much more.

The Twisted Show

We have tentatively scheduled a September interview with the CEO and lead developer from Chesspark. From their site:

"Chesspark was created by chess lovers to bring chess to a wide audience of casual, club, and professional players. Our modern and easy to use interface makes use of the latest technologies for the Web as well as Instant Messaging in order to make online chess accessible to everyone, not just the elite players. However, those elite players will find features at Chesspark that are available no where else and made just for them."

Join us as we explore how others are uniquely deploying Twisted, while making bazillions of dollars and friends. Read more about the show here:
