Twisted is a framework, written in Python, for writing networked applications.
It includes implementations of a number of commonly used network services such
as a web server, an IRC chat server, a mail server, a relational database
interface and an object broker. Developers can build applications using all of
these services as well as custom services that they write themselves. Twisted
also includes a user authentication system that controls access to services and
provides services with user context information to implement their own security
Twisted provides important features needed for networking programming, both at
the high and low levels:
* Pluggable event loops allowing the developer to take advantage of platform-
* Abstractions of protocols and transports.
* Through Twisted Spread, mechanisms for network encoding of data (in Python,
Java, ELisp, and other languages), to a full-blown distributed object system.
