Swirl makes it easier to use the asynchronous features of the Tornado framework. Tornado methods that require callbacks force you to write a separate function to capture the result of the method, disrupting the flow of your program. Swirl exploits Python's support for coroutines to remove the need for you to write explicit callback functions.
