multitasking offers a simple method to convert Python methods into asynchronous / non-blocking methods by using decorators.


import multitasking
import time
import random

import signal

# kill all tasks on ctrl-c
signal.signal(signal.SIGINT, multitasking.killall)

# to wait for task to finish, use:
# signal.signal(signal.SIGINT, multitasking.wait_for_tasks)

def hello(count):
    sleep = random.randint(1,10)/2
    print("Hello %s (sleeping for %ss)" % (count, sleep))
    print("Goodbye %s (after for %ss)" % (count, sleep))

if __name__ == "__main__":
    for i in range(0, 10):
