Trollius provides infrastructure for writing single-threaded concurrent code using coroutines, multiplexing I/O access over sockets and other resources, running network clients and servers, and other related primitives. Here is a more detailed list of the package contents:
- a pluggable event loop with various system-specific implementations;
- transport and protocol abstractions (similar to those in Twisted);
- concrete support for TCP, UDP, SSL, subprocess pipes, delayed calls, and others (some may be system-dependent);
- a Future class that mimics the one in the concurrent.futures module, but adapted for use with the event loop;
- coroutines and tasks based on generators (yield), to help write concurrent code in a sequential fashion;
- cancellation support for Futures and coroutines;
- synchronization primitives for use between coroutines in a single thread, mimicking those in the threading module;
- an interface for passing work off to a threadpool, for times when you absolutely, positively have to use a library that makes blocking I/O calls.
