        gevent_
=======

gevent_ is a coroutine-based Python networking library.

Features include:

* Fast event loop based on libev_.
* Lightweight execution units based on greenlet_.
* Familiar API that re-uses concepts from the Python standard library.
* Cooperative sockets with SSL support.
* DNS queries performed through c-ares_ or a threadpool.
* Ability to use standard library and 3rd party modules written for standard blocking sockets

gevent_ is `inspired by eventlet`_ but features more consistent API, simpler implementation and better performance. Read why others `use gevent`_ and check out the list of the `open source projects based on gevent`_.
