A container of aio components.

Project description


Build Status codecov PyPI - Python Version PyPI

A container of AIO components.

This project is a framework for combining multiple AIO components into one. For example, you can easily extend your TCP server with a HTTP server to offer HTTP API. Usage is simple, write regular coroutine and config file, start with the command line tool, the framework will take care of the work loop.

Each of the coroutine is a magic bean, this framework is a magic pod.


Custom coroutine is packed as a asyncio.Task, we call it: bean. Thanks to the Python asyncio, all beans can work together. A runner named pod maintains the beans and the whole work loop life cycle.

Each bean has a unique id. label can also be used for identifying one or more beans.

You can access other beans by using a context object with id or label.

Signals can be dispatched to each beans which registered callback function.


pip install os-aio-pod

There are some extra packages can be installed for more features.

subpackage install command enables
uvloop pip install os-aio-pod[uvloop] enable uvloop
uvicorn pip install os-aio-pod[uvicorn] enable uvicorn http server adapter
aiohttp pip install os-aio-pod[aiohttp] enable aiohttp http server adapter
aiomonitor pip install os-aio-pod[aiomonitor] enable aiomonitor adapter


Three steps:

  1. write your coroutine
  2. write a config file(Python file)
  3. run with os-aio-pod


Custom coroutine

Actually, there are three types of coroutine code for your choice:

  1. Regular coroutine, the hello object of the following example.

    import asyncio
    async def hello_world(**kwargs):
        print('hello world!')
        await asyncio.sleep(1)
    hello = hello_world()
  2. Regular coroutine fucntion, the hello_world function of the above example. Keyword arguments can be set in the config file.

  3. A class with async def __call__(self) method and have context as init arguments:

    class HelloWorld(object):
        def __init__(self, context):
            self.context = context
        async def __call__(self, **kwargs):
            print('hello world!')
            await asyncio.sleep(1)


When you use class type coroutine, you can use the context to communicate with the framework and other beans.


Thanks to asyncio_dispatch, we easily can register and deliver signals.

Typically, you should only use context APIs to process signals.

The system SIGINT,SIGTERM are caught by the framework to handler shutdown stuff after dispatch to each registered callback.

Other system signals are not supported yet.


Config file is a regular Python file, all upper case variables will pass to the frame work which can be accessed later. The reserved key words:

  • BEANS: a list of bean config dict, the reserved key words of each bean config are: core, label, other keyword arguments will pass to your function

    core: string path of your coroutine

    label: optional, can be used to trace your bean

  • LOG_LEVEL: logger level, default INFO

  • LOOP_TYPE: default is asyncio, can be uvloop when you install uvloop

  • DEBUG: enable debug mode, default False

  • STOP_WAIT_TIME: the wait time when recieve signal(SIGINT, SIGTERM). Once timeout, all unfinished bean will be cancelled. Default is None, indicate wait until all beans done


        'core' : 'hello_world.HelloWorld',
        'label': 'first-bean',
        'key1' : 'value1',

LOG_LEVEL      = 'debug'
LOOP_TYPE      = 'asyncio'
DEBUG          = False

Command line

os-aio-pod command can be used to start the whole framework, the typical usage:

$ os-aio-pod run -c

The reserved config key words(exclude BEANS) can be set by passing command line options.

$ os-aio-pod run --help

Built-In Components

There are some built-in adapters can be used for convenient:

  • uvicorn, a lightning-fast ASGI server

    pip install uvicorn
    BEANS = [
            'core': 'os_aio_pod.contrib.uvicorn.UvicornAdapter',
            'app' : ''

    a context object named aio_pod_context will attached to the app object

  • aiohttp, a well known aio http server

    pip install aiohttp
    BEANS = [
            'core': 'os_aio_pod.contrib.aiohttp.WebAdapter',
            'app' : ''

    a context object named aio_pod_context will attached to the app object

  • aiomonitor, adds monitor and python REPL capabilities for asyncio application

    pip install aiomonitor
    BEANS = [
            'core': 'os_aio_pod.contrib.aiomonitor.AioMonitorAdapter',
  • built-in tcp server

    An event driven server can be inherited from os_aio_pod.contrib.tcp_server.Server(default server).

    If protocol is configured, low-level networking protocol interface will be used instead of the server's on_connect method. The server instance can be accessed with your_protocol.server

    BEANS = [
            'core': 'os_aio_pod.contrib.tcp_server.TCPServerAdapter',
            # 'protocol': 'your.asyncio.Protocol.path'
            # 'server': 'your.event.driven.server'
