ZeroMQ integration with asyncio.

Project description

asyncio (PEP 3156) support for ZeroMQ.



Simple high-level client-server RPC example:

import asyncio
import aiozmq.rpc

class ServerHandler(aiozmq.rpc.AttrHandler):

    def remote_func(self, a:int, b:int) -> int:
        return a + b

def go():
    server = yield from aiozmq.rpc.serve_rpc(
        ServerHandler(), bind='tcp://')
    client = yield from aiozmq.rpc.connect_rpc(

    ret = yield from, 2)
    assert 3 == ret



Low-level request-reply example:

import asyncio
import aiozmq
import zmq

def go():
    router = yield from aiozmq.create_zmq_stream(

    addr = list(router.transport.bindings())[0]
    dealer = yield from aiozmq.create_zmq_stream(

    for i in range(10):
        msg = (b'data', b'ask', str(i).encode('utf-8'))
        data = yield from
        answer = yield from
