A light-weight library to efficiently run series of asynchronous and synchronous tasks concurrently without worrying about managing different threads on your own.

PyExecutors - A simple multi-threading task management library

Travis Passing PyPI version PyPI Downloads PyPI license Downloads

Are you great with multi-threading?

PyExecutors is a utility module which provides straight-forward, powerful functions for working with asynchronous python functions.

This runs an array of functions in series. You can program the functions to run synchronously or asynchronously in the order you desire.


pip install pyexecutors

Then, from a python interpreter

from pyexecutors.executors.Executors import SyncTasks, AsyncTasks, Executors

def execute_method(exec_thread_number):
    // your function

Executors() \
    .enqueue(AsyncTasks(execute_method, args=(1,))) \
    .enqueue(AsyncTasks(execute_method, args=(2,))) \
    .enqueue(SyncTasks(execute_method, args=(3,))) \
    .enqueue(AsyncTasks(execute_method, args=(4,))) \

How does it work

Synchronous Functions

A synchronous functions runs by encapsulating itself with RLocks . The lock is released after the functions' execution is complete

Asynchronous Functions

Asynchronous takes the help of Barriers. The idea is to create a barrier with the limit being the number of consecutive async functions. A new barrier is created when a Sync function comes in between.

Running Tests

pip install pytest

The test function simply matches the thread number with the argument passed to the functions. The argument has been given to match the order of thread execution
