class websocket._abnf.ABNF(fin=0, rsv1=0, rsv2=0, rsv3=0, opcode=1, mask=1, data='')[source]

ABNF frame class. See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5234 and http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6455#section-5.2

__init__(fin=0, rsv1=0, rsv2=0, rsv3=0, opcode=1, mask=1, data='')[source]

Constructor for ABNF. Please check RFC for arguments.

static create_frame(data, opcode, fin=1)[source]

Create frame to send text, binary and other data.

  • data (<type>) – data to send. This is string value(byte array). If opcode is OPCODE_TEXT and this value is unicode, data value is converted into unicode string, automatically.

  • mask_key (bytes or str) – 4 byte mask.

  • data (bytes or str) – data to mask/unmask.

validate(skip_utf8_validation=False) None[source]
