Timeout context manager for asyncio programs
asyncio-compatible timeout context manager.
The context manager is useful in cases when you want to apply timeout logic around block of code or in cases when asyncio.wait_for() is not suitable. Also it’s much faster than asyncio.wait_for() because timeout doesn’t create a new task.
The timeout(timeout, *, loop=None) call returns a context manager that cancels a block on timeout expiring:
async with timeout(1.5): await inner()
- If inner() is executed faster than in 1.5 seconds nothing happens.
- Otherwise inner() is cancelled internally by sending asyncio.CancelledError into but asyncio.TimeoutError is raised outside of context manager scope.
timeout parameter could be None for skipping timeout functionality.
Context manager has .expired property for check if timeout happens exactly in context manager:
async with timeout(1.5) as cm: await inner() print(cm.expired)
The property is True is inner() execution is cancelled by timeout context manager.
If inner() call explicitly raises TimeoutError cm.expired is False.
