A backported ThreadPoolExecutor with thread TTL

Project description

This library tries to solve my issue with 1000+ idle threads in Python 3.7 by using a backported ThreadPoolExecutor (with thread reuse) and giving threads a TTL.

There is probably no reason to use this for short-lived threads.


There are two ways to use this library, overwrite the default TheadPoolExecutor or use it directly.

To overwrite the default, do this as the first thing before any other thing your project does.

from timeoutthreadpoolexecutor import TimeoutThreadPoolExecutor
from concurrent.futures import thread
thread.ThreadPoolExecutor = TimeoutThreadPoolExecutor


from timeoutthreadpoolexecutor import TimeoutThreadPoolExecutor as ThreadPoolExecutor


Same as Python, I guess.
