Remarks

This section provides an overview of what python-asyncio is, and why a developer might want to use it.

It should also mention any large subjects within python-asyncio, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for python-asyncio is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.

Installation or Setup

pip install asyncio
 

Notice that python asyncio requires Python 3.3 or later.

This module became part of the Python standard library since Python 3.4.

Simple Example- Printing 'Hello World' with asyncio

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
loop.run_until_complete(hello_world())
loop.close()
