Welcome to python-valve’s documentation!¶
python-valve is a Python library which aims to provide the ability to interace with various Valve services and products, including: the Steam web API, locally installed Steam clients, Source servers and the Source master server.
Although Python libraries do already exist for many aspects which python-valve aims to cover, many of them are aging and no long maintained. python-valve hopes to change that and provide an all-in-one library for interfacing with Valve products and services that is well tested, well documented and actively maintained.
python-valve’s functional test suite for its A2S implentation is actively ran against thousands of servers to ensure that if any subtle changes are made by Valve that break things they can be quickly picked up and fixed.
