    The C based gRPC (C++, Python, Ruby, Objective-C, PHP, C#)

    One of the standardized formats of RPC is called gRPC it is widely accepted and used in the industry, it has been created and standardized by Google (internally the previous version was called Stubby).

  • websocket-client

    WebSocket client for Python

    Websockets are (usually) for server to browser communication. The server hosts a WebSocket server, and clients can open a connection to that server. This is popular now mostly because it is faster and less resource-hogging than older ways of solving the problem, like long-polling/COMET. It is possible to connect 2 servers using websockets, but that is not usually what they are used for.

    GraphQL Foundation artwork (by graphql)
