Asyncio event loop written in Rust language

Project description

async-tokio is a drop-in replacement of the built-in asyncio event loop. async-tokio is implemented in rust and uses tokio-rs under the hood and PyO3 python binding.

Using tokio loop

You can create an instance of the loop manually, using:

import tokio

policy = tokio.EventLoopPolicy()

Development of tokio loop

To build tokio loop, you’ll need rust nightly and Python 3.6. The best way is to create a virtual env, so that you’ll have python commands pointing to the correct tools.

  1. git clone

  2. cd tokio

  3. make build

  4. make test


At the moment async-tokio works on unix like systems only. Supported api:

  • time api (call_at, call_later)

  • sockets api (sock_xxx methods)

  • tcp (client/server)

  • unix domain socket

  • dns

  • pipes

  • subprocess

  • signals

  • executors

UDP support is missing.


async-tokio is offered under the Apache 2.0 licenses.


0.2.0 (07-23-2017)

  • Use pyo3 python binding PyO3 python binding.

  • Implement more asyncio APIs
