aiofiles: file support for asyncio

https://travis-ci.org/Tinche/aiofiles.svg?branch=master Supported Python versions

aiofiles is an Apache2 licensed library, written in Python, for handling local disk files in asyncio applications.

Ordinary local file IO is blocking, and cannot easily and portably made asynchronous. This means doing file IO may interfere with asyncio applications, which shouldn't block the executing thread. aiofiles helps with this by introducing asynchronous versions of files that support delegating operations to a separate thread pool.

async with aiofiles.open('filename', mode='r') as f:
    contents = await f.read()
print(contents)
'My file contents'

Asynchronous iteration is also supported.

async with aiofiles.open('filename') as f:
    async for line in f:
        ...

Features

  • a file API very similar to Python's standard, blocking API
  • support for buffered and unbuffered binary files, and buffered text files
  • support for async/await (PEP 492) constructs

Installation

To install aiofiles, simply:

$ pip install aiofiles

Usage

Files are opened using the aiofiles.open() coroutine, which in addition to mirroring the builtin open accepts optional loop and executor arguments. If loop is absent, the default loop will be used, as per the set asyncio policy. If executor is not specified, the default event loop executor will be used.

In case of success, an asynchronous file object is returned with an API identical to an ordinary file, except the following methods are coroutines and delegate to an executor:

  • close
  • flush
  • isatty
  • read
  • readall
  • read1
  • readinto
  • readline
  • readlines
  • seek
  • seekable
  • tell
  • truncate
  • writable
  • write
  • writelines

In case of failure, one of the usual exceptions will be raised.

The aiofiles.os module contains executor-enabled coroutine versions of several useful os functions that deal with files:

  • stat
  • sendfile
  • rename
  • remove
  • mkdir
  • rmdir

Writing tests for aiofiles

Real file IO can be mocked by patching aiofiles.threadpool.sync_open as desired. The return type also needs to be registered with the aiofiles.threadpool.wrap dispatcher:

aiofiles.threadpool.wrap.register(mock.MagicMock)(
    lambda *args, **kwargs: threadpool.AsyncBufferedIOBase(*args, **kwargs))

async def test_stuff():
    data = 'data'
    mock_file = mock.MagicMock()

    with mock.patch('aiofiles.threadpool.sync_open', return_value=mock_file) as mock_open:
        async with aiofiles.open('filename', 'w') as f:
            await f.write(data)

        mock_file.write.assert_called_once_with(data)

History

0.4.0 (2018-08-11)

  • Python 3.7 support.
  • Removed Python 3.3/3.4 support. If you use these versions, stick to aiofiles 0.3.x.

0.3.2 (2017-09-23)

  • The LICENSE is now included in the sdist. #31

0.3.1 (2017-03-10)

  • Introduced a changelog.
  • aiofiles.os.sendfile will now work if the standard os module contains a sendfile function.
