A simple module for creating a background thread and returning a Future object
Creates a thread with Future attributes.
Based on (and actively uses) features from concurrent.futures module to easily start a function in a new background thread without the overhead of using a ThreadPoolExecutor, while still providing a Future style handle around said thread.
import time from future_thread import Future, DeferredFuture def background(): time.sleep(10) return True fut = Future(background) fut.result() # will block until thread finished fut = DeferredFuture(background) # do some other stuff fut.start()
For more info on the Future object see: https://docs.python.org/3/library/concurrent.futures.html#concurrent.futures.Future
