Matrix client-server SDK for Python 2.7 and 3.4+

Project Status

We strongly recommend using the matrix-nio_ library rather than this sdk. It is both more featureful and more actively maintained.

This sdk is currently lightly maintained without any person ultimately responsible for the project. Pull-requests may be reviewed, but no new-features or bug-fixes are being actively developed. For more info or to volunteer to help, please see https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-python-sdk/issues/279 or come chat in #matrix-python-sdk:matrix.org_.

Installation

Stable release

Install with pip from pypi. This will install all necessary dependencies as well.

.. code:: shell

pip install matrix_client

Development version

Install using setup.py in root project directory. This will also install all needed dependencies.

.. code:: shell

git clone https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-python-sdk.git cd matrix-python-sdk python setup.py install

Usage

The SDK provides 2 layers of interaction. The low-level layer just wraps the raw HTTP API calls. The high-level layer wraps the low-level layer and provides an object model to perform actions on.

Client:

.. code:: python

from matrix_client.client import MatrixClient

client = MatrixClient("http://localhost:8008")

# New user
token = client.register_with_password(username="foobar", password="monkey")

# Existing user
token = client.login(username="foobar", password="monkey")

room = client.create_room("my_room_alias")
room.send_text("Hello!")

API:

.. code:: python

from matrix_client.api import MatrixHttpApi

matrix = MatrixHttpApi("https://matrix.org", token="some_token")
response = matrix.send_message("!roomid:matrix.org", "Hello!")

Structure

The SDK is split into two modules: api and client.

API

This contains the raw HTTP API calls and has minimal business logic. You can set the access token (token) to use for requests as well as set a custom transaction ID (txn_id) which will be incremented for each request.

Client

This encapsulates the API module and provides object models such as Room.

Samples

A collection of samples are included, written in Python 3.

You can either install the SDK, or run the sample like this:

.. code:: shell

PYTHONPATH=. python samples/samplename.py

Building the Documentation

The documentation can be built by installing sphinx and sphinx_rtd_theme.

Simple run make inside docs which will list the avaliable output formats.
