aiohttp

HTTP client/server for asyncio (PEP 3156).

Features

Library Installation

pip install aiohttp

Getting Started

Client example:

import asyncio
import aiohttp

@asyncio.coroutine
def fetch_page(url):
    response = yield from aiohttp.request('GET', url)
    assert response.status == 200
    return (yield from response.read())

content = asyncio.get_event_loop().run_until_complete(
    fetch_page('http://python.org'))
print(content)

Server example:

import asyncio
from aiohttp import web


@asyncio.coroutine
def handle(request):
    name = request.match_info.get('name', "Anonymous")
    text = "Hello, " + name
    return web.Response(body=text.encode('utf-8'))


@asyncio.coroutine
def init(loop):
    app = web.Application(loop=loop)
    app.router.add_route('GET', '/{name}', handle)

    srv = yield from loop.create_server(app.make_handler(),
                                        '127.0.0.1', 8080)
    print("Server started at http://127.0.0.1:8080")
    return srv

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
loop.run_until_complete(init(loop))
try:
    loop.run_forever()
except KeyboardInterrupt:
    pass
