Asynkio - Write asynchronous network and IO calls painlessly

View Project


Write your network requests, IO calls in android with Kotlin seamlessly. Asynkio Inspired by python’s asyncio

What I mean is..

async {
    //All network requests on couroutines
    val response = await {
        //Get the data
        val resp = get("https://awesome.com/lib", params = mapOf("lib" to "Asynkio"))

        //Post the data
        return@await post("https://youareonfire.com/lib", data = mapOf("id" to resp.jsonObject["id"]))
    }
    //Process the result on UI thread
    if (response.statusCode == 200){
        yoTextView.text = response.text
    }
}

Yes, that’s it. No retrofit. No Volley. Java/Kotlin are very bad at handling the http requests, but still Asynkio is the optimal way. No extra overhead, Seriously…No bullshit! Another example

async {
    filename = await {
        longRunningFileOperation(content)
    }
}.onError {
    Toast.makeText(context, "Oops ! it failed",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
}.finally {
    closeTheFile(filename)
}
