Asyncio event loop based on tokio-rs (WIP) Build Status Join the dev chat at https://gitter.im/PyO3/Lobby

async-tokio is a drop-in replacement of the built-in asyncio event loop. async-tokio is implemented in rust and uses tokio-rs under the hood and PyO3 python binding.

Using tokio loop

You can create an instance of the loop manually, using:

import tokio

policy = tokio.EventLoopPolicy()
asyncio.set_event_loop_policy(policy)

Development of tokio loop

To build tokio loop, you'll need rust nightly and Python 3.6. The best way is to create a virtual env, so that you'll have python commands pointing to the correct tools.

  1. git clone git@github.com:PyO3/tokio.git
  2. cd tokio
  3. make build
  4. make test

Status

At the moment async-tokio works on unix like systems only. Supported api:

  • time api (call_at, call_later)
  • sockets api (sock_xxx methods)
  • tcp (client/server)
  • unix domain socket
  • dns
  • pipes
  • subprocess
  • signals
  • executors

UDP support is missing.
