About the Topic

aiohttp is HTTP client and server library built on top of asyncio.

The library allows to write user friendly code which looks like well-known linear one (requests library for client and Django/Flask/Pyramid for server) but utilizes the power of nonblocking sockets and supports websockets natively.

The intro describes basic programming patterns for both client and server API as well as advanced techniques like server signals and middlewares.
