socket.io-announce 0.0.5

Socket.io multi-process announcement channel ported to Python

https://travis-ci.org/GetBlimp/socket.io-announce.png?branch=master

Lightweight infrastructure broadcast for use with Socket.io RedisStore. This was ported from dshaw/socket.io-announce a Node.js project. Thanks to @dshaw.

Install

pip install socket.io-announce

Use anywhere in your stack, independent of other socket.io servers.

from announce import Announce

announce = Announce()
announce.emit('status', {'msg': 'Going down for maintenance in 15 minutes', 'countdown': 10000})

Emit to all users.

announce.send('Hello, world!')
announce.emit('quote', {'symbol':'APPL', 'price': 5000})

Target socket.io rooms.

announce.send('Yoyo yo!', room='boardroom')
announce.emit('tweet', {'id': '1', 'user': '@dshaw', 'text': 'Keeping things small...'}, room='nodeup')

Target socket.io namespaces (with rooms too).

announce = Announce(namespace='/namespace')
announce.emit('episode', {'url': 'http://www.nodeup.com/twentyfour'}, room='nodeup')

Custom JSON Serialization

If you run into JSON errors trying to serialize data types like date/time/timedelta, decimal, generators, or any other that is not supported by the standard json library, you'll probably need to use a custom JSONEncoder.

def custom_json_dumps(data):
    return json.dumps(data, cls=CustomJSONEncoder)

announce = Announce(namespace='/namespace', json_dumps=custom_json_dumps)
announce.emit('episode', {'date': datetime.datetime.today()}, room='nodeup')
