Draft PEP for asynchronous IO
Branch: master


PEP 3153: the protocols PEP formerly known as async-pep

This is the open collaborative repository for the draft Python Enhancement Proposal for getting standardized protocol abstractions into the Python standard library.

Work on this PEP was originally started by Jim Fulton, with help from Glyph Lefkowitz and JP Calderone of Twisted Matrix Laboratories. It is currently being championed by lvh, also of Twisted Matrix Laboratories, under the watchful eye of Glyph and JP.

Outside contributions are most welcome! The goal is to make the threshold to collaboration minimal. Please feel free to add tickets, or even better, submit pull requests.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
