  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo aiohttp-requests

    A thin wrapper for aiohttp client with Requests simplicity

    No. There are a few extension projects that have tried to add it (or this one that adds the requests API to aiohttp), but nothing that's officially supported or widely adopted.

  • GitHub repo AIOHTTP

    Asynchronous HTTP client/server framework for asyncio and Python

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo h11

    A pure-Python, bring-your-own-I/O implementation of HTTP/1.1

    For those interested, you can take a look at h11 which is an I/O free implementation of the HTTP/1.1 protocol: reading their codebase and the RFC helped me a lot to understand how HTTP works under the hood.
