Trying is the first step towards failure.
I've just finished a small python demo using Simplepush. I used simplepush's python library and Requests. Basically, it's a small demo to show people how to import things into a python script, make a config file, use Requests to get a server's response value, then do things depending on the result.
You can easily make changes to it depending on what you do, it's just a super quick demo.
