Simple DNS resolver for asyncio

Project description

https://secure.travis-ci.org/saghul/aiodns.png?branch=master

aiodns provides a simple way for doing asynchronous DNS resolutions with a synchronous looking interface by using pycares.

Example

import asyncio
import aiodns

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
resolver = aiodns.DNSResolver(loop=loop)
f = resolver.query('google.com','A')
result = loop.run_until_complete(f)
print(result)

The following query types are supported: A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NAPTR, NS, PTR, SOA, SRV, TXT.

The library supports both asyncio and Trollius.

If you use Python 3 you may use yield from statement:

@asyncio.coroutine
def func():
    result = yield from resolver.query('google.com','A')

For Trollius you should use another syntax like:

@trollius.coroutine
def func():
     result = yield trollius.From(resolver.query('google.com','A'))

API

The API is pretty simple, two functions are provided in the DNSResolver class:

  • query(host, type): Do a DNS resolution of the given type for the given hostname. It returns an instance of asyncio.Future. The actual result of the DNS query is taken directly from pycares. As of version 1.0.0 of aiodns (and pycares, for that matter) results are always namedtuple-like objects with different attributes. Please check the documentation for the result fields.
  • cancel(): Cancel all pending DNS queries. All futures will get DNSError exception set, with ARES_ECANCELLED errno.

Running the test suite

To run the test suite: python test_aiodns.py

Python versions

Python 3.4 is natively supported. Python 3.3 supported using the asyncio package. Older Python versions(2.6 - 3.2) are supported using trollius.
