Python Language Using UVLoop


Example

uvloop is an implementation for the asyncio.AbstractEventLoop based on libuv (Used by nodejs). It is compliant with 99% of asyncio features and is much faster than the traditional asyncio.EventLoop. uvloop is currently not available on Windows, install it with pip install uvloop.

import asyncio
import uvloop

if __name__ == "__main__":
    asyncio.set_event_loop(uvloop.new_event_loop())
    # Do your stuff here ...

One can also change the event loop factory by setting the EventLoopPolicy to the one in uvloop.

import asyncio
import uvloop

if __name__ == "__main__":
    asyncio.set_event_loop_policy(uvloop.EventLoopPolicy())
    loop = asyncio.new_event_loop()
