Python Servers

This is a catch-all category. In practice, 'Python servers' will mean Twisted servers, however limited. Will work within existing constraints somehow. See PythonTwistdServer

First, the standard library provides client and server implementation for several network protocols out of the box: see


Usually bare bones HTTP routing, needs template, database, wiki parsing, etc.

Widely used.

Werkzeug started as a simple collection of various utilities for WSGI applications and has become one of the most advanced WSGI utility modules.

It includes a powerful debugger, fully featured request and response objects, HTTP utilities to handle entity tags, cache control headers, HTTP dates, cookie handling, file uploads, a powerful URL routing system and a bunch of community contributed addon modules.

Often combined with Jinja template engine. Flask for instance.

Other HTTP Servers - asyncio py 3.3

circuits is a Lightweight Event driven and Asynchronous Application Framework for the Python Programming Language with a strong Component Architecture.

circuits also includes a lightweight, high performance and scalable HTTP/WSGI compliant web server as well as various I/O and Networking components.

Not sure what it is, but it's a server ...

PyWebDAV is a standards compliant WebDAV server and library written in Python

Python WebDAV implementation (level 1 and 2) that features a library that enables you to integrate WebDAV server capabilities to your application.

A fully working example on how to use the library is included. You can find a server in the DAVServer package. This server is fully functional and can even be run as daemon ...

Generic WebDAV server based on WSGI

WsgiDAV is a WebDAV server for sharing files and other resources over the web. It is based on the WSGI interface

It comes bundled with a simple WSGI web server.

Paramiko is a Python (2.6+, 3.3+) implementation of the SSHv2 protocol, providing both client and server functionality.

While it leverages a Python C extension for low level cryptography (PyCrypto), Paramiko itself is a pure Python interface around SSH networking concepts. - Cross-platform pipe implementations

Abstraction of a one-way pipe where the read end can be used in Normally this is trivial, but Windows makes it nearly impossible.

The pipe acts like an Event, which can be set or cleared. When set, the pipe will trigger as readable in select.


Python 2.6 or better - this includes Python 3.2 and higher as well.

pycrypto 2.1 or better

ecdsa 0.9 or better


an ssh server that listens on port 2200 and accepts a login for 'robey' (password 'foo'), and pretends to be a BBS. meant to be a very simple demo of writing an ssh server.


Twistd XMPP Router

See PythonTwistdServer#TwistdXMPPRouter


Pretzel is a Jabber/XMPP server designed to be able to be easily extensible.

It is built on top of the Twisted and is designed to be a platform on top of which Jabber Extension Proposals can easily be implemented, in order to drive client adoption and testing.

  • Why Pretzel?
    • the need for a scripty-language Jabber server
    • the Twisted framework is kind of pretzel-y
    • the first big batch of code was committed in Stuttgart, Germany, birthplace of the pretzel


Wokkel is collection of enhancements on top of the Python​Twisted? networking framework, written in Python. It mostly provides a testing ground for enhancements to the Jabber/XMPP protocol implementation as found in Twisted Words, that are meant to eventually move there.

Start here with the developer guides for Wokkel, including examples and the current API reference.

Currently, Wokkel provides the following enhancements on top of Twisted Words:

  • A mechanism for easier implementation of ​XMPP Extension Protocols (XEPs) as so-called subprotocols.
  • XMPP Client and server-side component support, that eases development and supports subprotocols.
  • XMPP Server support. Note that this does not yet include support for handling client connections.
  • Subprotocol implementations for:
    • Generic presence, roster and message handling.
    • Service Discovery (​XEP-0030), client and service side.
    • Publish-Subscribe (​XEP-0060), client and service side.
    • Software Version (​XEP-0092), service side.
    • XMPP Ping (​XEP-0199), client and service side.
    • Multi-User Chat (​XEP-0045), client side. (new in 0.7.0)
  • Data format implementations for:
    • Data Forms (​XEP-0004)
    • User Tune (​XEP-0118)
    • User Mood (​XEP-0107)
    • XMPP Stanza Headers and Internet Metadata. (​XEP-0131).
    • Delayed Delivery (​XEP-0203 and ​XEP-0091). (new in 0.7.0)


... The defacto standard Python task queue is Celery ...


Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.

The execution units, called tasks, are executed concurrently on a single or more worker servers using multiprocessing, Eventlet, or gevent. Tasks can execute asynchronously (in the background) or synchronously (wait until ready).

Celery is used in production systems to process millions of tasks a day.

... The recommended message broker is RabbitMQ, but support for Redis, Beanstalk, MongoDB, CouchDB, and databases (using SQLAlchemy or the Django ORM) is also available.

Flower is a web based tool for monitoring and administrating Celery clusters.

STOMP is the Simple (or Streaming) Text Orientated Messaging Protocol.

STOMP provides an interoperable wire format so that STOMP clients can communicate with any STOMP message broker to provide easy and widespread messaging interoperability among many languages, platforms and brokers.

CoilMQ - a lightweight pure Python STOMP broker inspired by StompServer?

RabbitMQ STOMP Adapter -


CoilMQ is a simple, configurable STOMP message broker (aka STOMP server) written in Python. This project is inspired by the simple design of the Ruby stompserver project ...

Note that as of 3/31/2011 there is a version 1.1 of the STOMP protocol. Currently this is not supported by CoilMQ (but the plan is to add support).

Last release June 2011 ... some activity recently.

A.K.A. pyzmq. Includes both client and server python package and necessary binaries. Called "pyzmq-static" on PyPi.

Current pyzmq version 4.0.x for Mint and Windows uses libzmq3, current RaspberryPi pyzmq version 2.2.0 uses only libzmq1, confusing ...

For libraries using native code (Pillow, lxml, greenlet, gevent, psycopg2, ldap) it may be necessary to install development tools and native dependencies before pip is able to install the dependencies themselves. These are available in -dev or -devel packages for Python, Postgres, libxml2, libxslt, libevent, libsasl2 and libldap2. Then the Python dependecies can themselves be installed ...
