Network Programming for the Rest of Us
Twisted is a high-level networking framework that is built around event-driven asynchronous I/O. It supports TCP, SSL, UDP and other network transports. Twisted supports a wide variety of network protocols (including IMAP, SSH, HTTP, DNS). It is designed in a way that makes it easy to use with other eventdriven toolkits such as GTK+, Qt, Tk, wxPython and Win32. Implemented mostly in Python, Twisted makes it possible to create network applications without having to worry about low-level platform specific details. However, unlike many other network toolkits, Twisted still allows developers to access platform specific features if necessary. Twisted has been used to develop a wide variety of applications, including messaging clients, distributed hash tables, web applications and both open source projects and commercial applications.
