Make every Python function async/await

Project description

aioify (maintenance mode)

Authors of aioify and module-wrapper decided to discontinue support of these libraries since the idea: "let's convert sync libraries to async ones" works only for some cases. Existing releases of libraries won't be removed, but don't expect any changes since today. Feel free to fork these libraries, however, we don't recommend using the automatic sync-to-async library conversion approach, as unreliable. Instead, it's better to run synchronous functions asynchronously using or

Old documentation

Make every function async and await-able.


pip install aioify

For example, make os, shutil and user defined function await-able.

#!/usr/bin/env python

# This code should be executed only on POSIX OS with at least 1 GiB free space in /tmp/ directory and RAM!
