http client/server for asyncio

Project Description

http client/server for asyncio

Features

  • Supports both client and server side of HTTP protocol.
  • Supports both client and server Web-Sockets out-of-the-box.
  • Web-server has middlewares and pluggable routing.

Getting started

Client

To retrieve something from the web:

import aiohttp
import asyncio

async def fetch(session, url):
    with aiohttp.Timeout(10):
        async with session.get(url) as response:
            return await response.text()

if __name__ == '__main__':
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    with aiohttp.ClientSession(loop=loop) as session:
        html = loop.run_until_complete(
            fetch(session, 'http://python.org'))
        print(html)

Server

This is simple usage example:

from aiohttp import web

async def handle(request):
    name = request.match_info.get('name', "Anonymous")
    text = "Hello, " + name
    return web.Response(body=text.encode('utf-8'))

async def wshandler(request):
    ws = web.WebSocketResponse()
    await ws.prepare(request)

    async for msg in ws:
        if msg.tp == web.MsgType.text:
            ws.send_str("Hello, {}".format(msg.data))
        elif msg.tp == web.MsgType.binary:
            ws.send_bytes(msg.data)
        elif msg.tp == web.MsgType.close:
            break

    return ws


app = web.Application()
app.router.add_route('GET', '/echo', wshandler)
app.router.add_route('GET', '/{name}', handle)

web.run_app(app)

Note: examples are written for Python 3.5+ and utilize PEP-492 aka async/await. If you are using Python 3.4 please replace await with yield from and async def with @coroutine e.g.:

async def coro(...):
    ret = await f()

shoud be replaced by:

@asyncio.coroutine
def coro(...):
    ret = yield from f()
