aiojobs: Jobs scheduler for managing background task

The library gives controlled way for scheduling background tasks for asyncio applications.


$ pip3 install aiojobs

Usage example

import asyncio
import aiojobs

async def coro(timeout):
    await asyncio.sleep(timeout)

async def main():
    scheduler = aiojobs.Scheduler()
    for i in range(100):
        # spawn jobs
        await scheduler.spawn(coro(i/10))

    await asyncio.sleep(5.0)
    # not all scheduled jobs are finished at the moment

    # gracefully close spawned jobs
    await scheduler.close()

For further information read Quickstart, Introduction and API.

Integration with aiohttp.web

from aiohttp import web
from aiojobs.aiohttp import setup, spawn
import aiojobs

async def handler(request):
    await spawn(request, coro())
    return web.Response()

app = web.Application()
app.router.add_get('/', handler)

or just

from aiojobs.aiohttp import atomic

async def handler(request):
    return web.Response()
