PyAMF provides Action Message Format (AMF) support for Python that is compatible with the Adobe Flash Player. It includes integration with Python Web frameworks like Django, Pylons, Twisted, SQLAlchemy, and more. The Adobe Integrated Runtime and Adobe Flash Player use AMF to communicate between an application and a remote server. AMF encodes remote procedure calls (RPC) into a compact binary representation that can be transferred over HTTP/HTTPS or the RTMP/RTMPS protocol. Objects and data values are serialized into this binary format, which increases performance, allowing applications to load data up to 10 times faster than with text-based formats such as XML or SOAP.
AmFast is a Flash remoting package for Python. It features support for NetConnection and RemoteObject RPC, support for Producer/Consumer 'push' messaging with HTTP polling, HTTP long-polling, and real-time HTTP streaming channels, support for authentication with NetConnection and RemoteObject,, a Flexible Target mapping system that maps message destinations to invokable Target objects, support for ChannelSets with multiple Channels that expose resources in different ways, a built-in AMF encoder/decoder, and more.
