Asynchronous library for organizing interactions with Vkontakte api


Documentation is available here. Before asking the questions - please consult the documentation with its FAQ.


  • Direct requests to Vkontakte API
  • Requests to Vkontakte API using execute
  • Straightforward usage and API
  • Heavily annotated types
  • Extensive testing
  • Supports multiple groups at the same time
  • Build on experience and many known use cases

Supported attachments

You can use these classes from vkpore.objects to parse source data into instances. If you need something not supported by the library, every instance has .content_raw field with raw source data.

  • Sticker (type: sticker)
  • Video (type: video)
  • Photo (type: photo)
  • Audio (type: audio)
  • Link (type: link)
  • Wall (type: wall)
  • Gift (type: gift)
  • Doc (type: doc)

Supported events

You can use these classes from vkpore.events to parse source data into instances. If you need something not supported by the library, every instance has .source field with raw source data.

  • MessageNew (type: message_new)



You can use class Vkpore to create a manager and subscribe callbacks to events. When the manager receives event, it will call registered callback for type vk:<vkontakte-event-name>. The callback will receive an event instance through which you can interact with Vkontakte.

To start the manager, just call .run() method. If you want to run manager in background, you can use use coroutine .start().


app = Vkpore(["token"])

async def _(event: MessageNew):  # Echo callback
    await event.response(event.text)



You can use class VkClient to perform requests in a loop with execute or directly.

VkClient uses aiohttp.ClientSession, so you need to clean up before exiting your application, if your don’t want to see the warnings

Example without loop

async def application():
    client = VkClient("token")

    users = await client.raw_request("users.get", user_id=188149294)

    if users:

    await client.close_session()


Example with loop

  • Use .request() to utilize batching with execute and respect limits
  • Place your calls to .request() between .start() and .stop()
You still have to close the session
async def application():
    client = VkClient("token")

    # ...

    await client.stop()



  • Is there plugins? No. Vkpore is a library for aiding in developing your solutions with organizing and using Vkontakte API.
  • Is every event is supported? No. Only a few update types are supported with classes at the moment. But. You don’t have to only use classes. You can use "vk:raw" for receiving any update types that are not supported with classes.
  • Does this library work with user accounts? No, but actually yes. Only groups are supported by Vkpore class, but if you pass a user token in VkClient - it will possibly work fine.
  • Does this library support telegram? No. It’s a library for Vkontakte.
