class platypush.message.event.http.hook.WebhookEvent(*argv, hook, method, data=None, args=None, headers=None, response=None, **kwargs)[source]#

Bases: Event

Event triggered when a custom webhook is called.

class Encoder(*, skipkeys=False, ensure_ascii=True, check_circular=True, allow_nan=True, sort_keys=False, indent=None, separators=None, default=None)#

Bases: JSONEncoder

JSON encoder that can serialize custom types commonly handled in Platypush messages.

__init__(*, skipkeys=False, ensure_ascii=True, check_circular=True, allow_nan=True, sort_keys=False, indent=None, separators=None, default=None)#

Constructor for JSONEncoder, with sensible defaults.

If skipkeys is false, then it is a TypeError to attempt encoding of keys that are not str, int, float or None. If skipkeys is True, such items are simply skipped.

If ensure_ascii is true, the output is guaranteed to be str objects with all incoming non-ASCII characters escaped. If ensure_ascii is false, the output can contain non-ASCII characters.

If check_circular is true, then lists, dicts, and custom encoded objects will be checked for circular references during encoding to prevent an infinite recursion (which would cause an RecursionError). Otherwise, no such check takes place.

If allow_nan is true, then NaN, Infinity, and -Infinity will be encoded as such. This behavior is not JSON specification compliant, but is consistent with most JavaScript based encoders and decoders. Otherwise, it will be a ValueError to encode such floats.

If sort_keys is true, then the output of dictionaries will be sorted by key; this is useful for regression tests to ensure that JSON serializations can be compared on a day-to-day basis.

If indent is a non-negative integer, then JSON array elements and object members will be pretty-printed with that indent level. An indent level of 0 will only insert newlines. None is the most compact representation.

If specified, separators should be an (item_separator, key_separator) tuple. The default is (’, ‘, ‘: ‘) if indent is None and (‘,’, ‘: ‘) otherwise. To get the most compact JSON representation, you should specify (‘,’, ‘:’) to eliminate whitespace.

If specified, default is a function that gets called for objects that can’t otherwise be serialized. It should return a JSON encodable version of the object or raise a TypeError.


Implement this method in a subclass such that it returns a serializable object for o, or calls the base implementation (to raise a TypeError).

For example, to support arbitrary iterators, you could implement default like this:

def default(self, o):
        iterable = iter(o)
    except TypeError:
        return list(iterable)
    # Let the base class default method raise the TypeError
    return super().default(o)

Return a JSON string representation of a Python data structure.

>>> from json.encoder import JSONEncoder
>>> JSONEncoder().encode({"foo": ["bar", "baz"]})
'{"foo": ["bar", "baz"]}'
iterencode(o, _one_shot=False)#

Encode the given object and yield each string representation as available.

For example:

for chunk in JSONEncoder().iterencode(bigobject):
__init__(*argv, hook, method, data=None, args=None, headers=None, response=None, **kwargs)[source]#
  • hook (str) – Name of the invoked web hook, from http://host:port/hook/<hook>

  • method (str) – HTTP method (in uppercase)

  • data (str or dict/list from JSON) – Extra data passed over POST/PUT/DELETE

  • args (dict | list | str) – Extra query string arguments

  • headers – Request headers

  • response – Response returned by the hook.


Converts the event into a dictionary

classmethod build(msg)#

Builds an event message from a JSON UTF-8 string/bytearray, a dictionary, or another Event


If the event matches an event condition, it will return an EventMatchResult :param condition: The platypush.event.hook.EventCondition object

classmethod parse(msg)#

Parse a generic message into a key-value dictionary


msg – Original message. It can be a dictionary, a Message, or a string/bytearray, as long as it’s valid UTF-8 JSON

classmethod to_dict(msg)#

Converts a Message object into a dictionary


msg – Message object
