Twisted Mixing

Laurens Van Houtven

Audience level:
Python Libraries


A talk about mixing Twisted, an asynchronous IO framework for Python, with other Python code: blocking code, other asynchronous code...


This talk deals with how Twisted can be combined with pretty much anything else. A common criticism of Twisted is that it wants to take over your entire ecosystem. The point of this talk is to demonstrate that that's a misconception. Specifically, the talk will demonstrate how: - Twisted can be added to many stacks with little or no change, e.g. as your WSGI server - Twisted can be added to existing blocking code easily - Blocking code, new or old, can be added to Twisted code - Twisted plays well with other asynchronous IO frameworks: specifically, I will talk about combining it with `gevent`
