evennia.server.portal.telnet

This module implements the telnet protocol.

This depends on a generic session module that implements the actual login procedure of the game, tracks sessions etc.

class evennia.server.portal.telnet.TelnetServerFactory[source]

Bases: twisted.internet.protocol.ServerFactory

This is only to name this better in logs

noisy = False
logPrefix()[source]

Describe this factory for log messages.

class evennia.server.portal.telnet.TelnetProtocol(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: twisted.conch.telnet.Telnet, twisted.conch.telnet.StatefulTelnetProtocol, evennia.server.session.Session

Each player connecting over telnet (ie using most traditional mud clients) gets a telnet protocol instance assigned to them. All communication between game and player goes through here.

__init__(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

dataReceived(data)[source]

Unused by default, but a good place to put debug printouts of incoming data.

connectionMade()[source]

This is called when the connection is first established.

toggle_nop_keepalive()[source]

Allow to toggle the NOP keepalive for those sad clients that can’t even handle a NOP instruction. This is turned off by the protocol_flag NOPKEEPALIVE (settable e.g. by the default @option command).

handshake_done(timeout=False)[source]

This is called by all telnet extensions once they are finished. When all have reported, a sync with the server is performed. The system will force-call this sync after a small time to handle clients that don’t reply to handshakes at all.

at_login()[source]

Called when this session gets authenticated by the server.

enableRemote(option)[source]

This sets up the remote-activated options we allow for this protocol.

Parameters

option (char) – The telnet option to enable.

Returns

enable (bool) – If this option should be enabled.

disableRemote(option)[source]

Signal a programming error by raising an exception.

L{enableRemote} must return true for the given value of C{option} in order for this method to be called. If a subclass of L{Telnet} overrides enableRemote to allow certain options to be enabled, it must also override disableRemote tto disable those options.

@raise NotImplementedError: Always raised.

enableLocal(option)[source]

Call to allow the activation of options for this protocol

Parameters

option (char) – The telnet option to enable locally.

Returns

enable (bool) – If this option should be enabled.

disableLocal(option)[source]

Disable a given option locally.

Parameters

option (char) – The telnet option to disable locally.

connectionLost(reason)[source]

this is executed when the connection is lost for whatever reason. it can also be called directly, from the disconnect method

Parameters

reason (str) – Motivation for losing connection.

applicationDataReceived(data)[source]

Telnet method called when non-telnet-command data is coming in over the telnet connection. We pass it on to the game engine directly.

Parameters

data (str) – Incoming data.

sendLine(line)[source]

Hook overloading the one used by linereceiver.

Parameters

line (str) – Line to send.

disconnect(reason='')[source]

generic hook for the engine to call in order to disconnect this protocol.

Parameters

reason (str, optional) – Reason for disconnecting.

data_in(**kwargs)[source]

Data User -> Evennia

Keyword Arguments

kwargs (any) – Options from the protocol.

data_out(**kwargs)[source]

Data Evennia -> User

Keyword Arguments

kwargs (any) – Options to the protocol

send_text(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Send text data. This is an in-band telnet operation.

Parameters

text (str) – The first argument is always the text string to send. No other arguments are considered.

Keyword Arguments

options (dict) –

Send-option flags

  • mxp: Enforce MXP link support.

  • ansi: Enforce no ANSI colors.

  • xterm256: Enforce xterm256 colors, regardless of TTYPE.

  • noxterm256: Enforce no xterm256 color support, regardless of TTYPE.

  • nocolor: Strip all Color, regardless of ansi/xterm256 setting.

  • raw: Pass string through without any ansi processing

    (i.e. include Evennia ansi markers but do not convert them into ansi tokens)

  • echo: Turn on/off line echo on the client. Turn

    off line echo for client, for example for password. Note that it must be actively turned back on again!

send_prompt(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Send a prompt - a text without a line end. See send_text for argument options.

send_default(cmdname, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Send other oob data
