The Twisted Book

What is Twisted?

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

Easily Implement Custom Servers and Clients

Twisted makes it easy to implement servers. Here's a TCP server that echoes back everything that's written to it:

from twisted.internet import protocol, reactor

class Echo(protocol.Protocol):
    def dataReceived(self, data):

class EchoFactory(protocol.Factory):
    def buildProtocol(self, addr):
        return Echo()

reactor.listenTCP(1234, EchoFactory())

Learn more about writing servers, writing clients and the core networking libraries (SSL, scheduled events, unit testing, and more).
