print message

def on_error(ws, error):
print error

def on_close(ws):
print "### closed ###"

def on_open(ws):
def run(*args):
for i in range(3):
time.sleep(1)
ws.send("Hello %d" % i)
time.sleep(1)
ws.close()
print "thread terminating..."
thread.start_new_thread(run, ())


if __name__ == "__main__":
websocket.enableTrace(True)
ws = websocket.WebSocketApp("ws://echo.websocket.org/",
on_message = on_message,
on_error = on_error,
on_close = on_close)
ws.on_open = on_open

ws.run_forever()
