Getting started

This library aims to have an small but complete asyncronous solution for dlang programs.

It's based around Furure's and await; a simple example would be:

import core.time : seconds;
import async.timeout : timeout;
timeout(seconds(5)).await();

Here timeout had a signature of TimeoutFuture timeout(Duration dur); where TimeoutFuture extends async.Future(T). The future itselv implements T await(); which can be called to await the future and get the result; in out case here void since a timeout dosnt produce a value.

To use futures, you must be in an fiber, and to achive that you simply schedule your function:

import async : gscheduler;
gscheduler.schedule(&someFunc);

Your main-function also should call gscheduler.loop(); before it's end to actually start the whole eventloop.

Roadmap

  • improve handling / distinction of io-events
  • improve way we handle futures: would like to get rid of spin-lock like codeflow
  • add more io futures:
  • chunked file io
  • improve socket based io by making the underlaying socket non-blocking
  • add signalhandlers for SIGTERM and SIGINT
  • support io_uring under linux
  • support more platforms like windows and osx
  • add thread-pool support
  • add more library features such as arbitary streams
  • add async variant of awaitAllSync
  • improve awaitAll* and captureAll to be paralell instead of linear
