Pyro: Python Remote Objects

version 3.16 (2012-04-09)

© Irmen de Jong (

Pyro is an advanced and powerful Distributed Object Technology system written entirely in Python, that is designed to be very easy to use. It resembles Java's Remote Method Invocation (RMI). It has less similarity to CORBA - which is a system and language independent Distributed Object Technology and has much more to offer than Pyro or RMI. But Pyro is small, simple, fun and free! Pyro is released under the MIT license, see the file "LICENSE".

Notice: Pyro 3.x is no longer maintained. New projects should use Pyro4 instead, which is the new Pyro version that is actively being developed.
