nio

Build Status codecov license Documentation Status #nio

nio is a multilayered Matrix client library. The underlying base layer doesn’t do any network IO on its own, but on top of that is a full fledged batteries-included asyncio layer using aiohttp. File IO is only done if you enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE).

Installation

To install nio, simply use pip:

$ pip install matrix-nio

Note that this installs nio without end-to-end encryption support. For e2ee support, python-olm is needed which requires the libolm C library (version 3.x).

After libolm has been installed, the e2ee enabled version of nio can be installed using pip:

$ pip install "matrix-nio[e2e]"

Additionally, a docker image with the e2ee enabled version of nio is provided in the docker/ directory.
