Python network library that uses greenlet and libevent for easy and scalable concurrency

Project Description

Attention!

New version of gevent uses libev and c-ares rather than libevent and includes all the dependencies in the release tarball.

You can download the 1.0 beta release from google code. Please give it a try.

gevent is a Python networking library that uses greenlet to provide synchronous API on top of libevent event loop.

Features include:

  • Fast event loop based on libevent.
  • Lightweight execution units based on greenlet.
  • Familiar API that re-uses concepts from the Python standard library.
  • Cooperative sockets with ssl support.
  • DNS queries performed through libevent-dns.
  • Ability to use standard library and 3rd party modules written for standard blocking sockets
  • Fast WSGI server based on libevent-http.

gevent is inspired by eventlet but features more consistent API, simpler implementation and better performance. Read why others use gevent and check out the list of the open source projects based on gevent.

gevent is written and maintained by Denis Bilenko and is licensed under MIT license.
