Welcome to PyPlanet’s documentation!¶
PyPlanet is a Maniaplanet/Trackmania Dedicated Server Controller that works on Python 3.6 until version 3.8 (we are working 3.9 and later). Because Maniaplanet/Trackmania is using a system that can be event based we use AsyncIO to provide an event loop and have simultaneously processing of received events from the dedicated server.
