Key Features

  • Supports both client and server side of HTTP protocol.
  • Supports both client and server Web-Sockets out-of-the-box and avoids Callback Hell.
  • Provides Web-server with middlewares and plugable routing.

Getting started


To get something from the web:

import aiohttp
import asyncio

async def main():

    async with aiohttp.ClientSession() as session:
        async with session.get('') as response:

            print("Status:", response.status)
            print("Content-type:", response.headers['content-type'])

            html = await response.text()
            print("Body:", html[:15], "...")

This prints:

Status: 200
Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Body: <!doctype html> ...

Coming from requests ? Read why we need so many lines.


An example using a simple server:

# examples/
from aiohttp import web

async def handle(request):
    name = request.match_info.get('name', "Anonymous")
    text = "Hello, " + name
    return web.Response(text=text)

async def wshandle(request):
    ws = web.WebSocketResponse()
    await ws.prepare(request)

    async for msg in ws:
        if msg.type == web.WSMsgType.text:
            await ws.send_str("Hello, {}".format(
        elif msg.type == web.WSMsgType.binary:
            await ws.send_bytes(
        elif msg.type == web.WSMsgType.close:

    return ws

app = web.Application()
app.add_routes([web.get('/', handle),
                web.get('/echo', wshandle),
                web.get('/{name}', handle)])

if __name__ == '__main__':
