tornado.platform.twisted — Bridges between Twisted and Tornado

Bridges between the Twisted reactor and Tornado IOLoop.

This module lets you run applications and libraries written for Twisted in a Tornado application. It can be used in two modes, depending on which library’s underlying event loop you want to use.

This module has been tested with Twisted versions 11.0.0 and newer.

Twisted DNS resolver

class tornado.platform.twisted.TwistedResolver[source]

Twisted-based asynchronous resolver.

This is a non-blocking and non-threaded resolver. It is recommended only when threads cannot be used, since it has limitations compared to the standard getaddrinfo-based Resolver and DefaultExecutorResolver. Specifically, it returns at most one result, and arguments other than host and family are ignored. It may fail to resolve when family is not socket.AF_UNSPEC.

Requires Twisted 12.1 or newer.

Changed in version 5.0: The io_loop argument (deprecated since version 4.1) has been removed.
