  • full featured event loop backed by epoll, kqueue, IOCP and events ports
  • asynchronous TCP and UDP sockets
  • asynchronous SSL sockets (based on Python’s SSL module)
  • asynchronous DNS resolution
  • asynchronous file and file system operations
  • asynchronous file system events
  • cross platform ANSI escape code controlled TTY
  • IPC with socket sharing, using UNIX domain sockets or named pipes (Windows)
