Patch asyncio to allow nested event loops
|Build| |Status| |PyPiVersion| |License| |Downloads|
By design asyncio
does not allow_ its event loop to be nested. This presents a practical problem: When in an environment where the event loop is already running it's impossible to run tasks and wait for the result. Trying to do so will give the error "
RuntimeError: This event loop is already running".
The issue pops up in various environments, such as web servers, GUI applications and in Jupyter notebooks.
This module patches asyncio to allow nested use of
pip3 install nest_asyncio
Python 3.5 or higher is required.
.. code-block:: python
import nest_asyncio nest_asyncio.apply()
Optionally the specific loop that needs patching can be given as argument to
apply, otherwise the current event loop is used. An event loop can be patched whether it is already running or not. Only event loops from asyncio can be patched; Loops from other projects, such as uvloop or quamash, generally can't be patched.
