Asynchronous I/O Articles
asyncio — Asynchronous I/O
asyncio is a library to write concurrent code using the async/await syntax.
Coroutines and Tasks
This section outlines high-level asyncio APIs to work with coroutines and Tasks.
Developing with asyncio
Asynchronous programming is different from classic “sequential” programming.
High-level API Index
This page lists all high-level async/await enabled asyncio APIs.
Low-level API Index
This page lists all low-level asyncio APIs.
module is designed to be portable, but some platforms have subtle differences and limitations due to the platforms’ underlying architecture and capabilities.
An event loop policy is a global per-process object that controls the management of the event loop. Each event loop has a default policy, which can be changed and customized using the policy API.
Transports and Protocols
Transports and Protocols are used by the low-level event loop APIs such as
. They use callback-based programming style and enable high-performance implementations of network or IPC protocols (e.g. HTTP).
