tokio-reactor 0.1.12

Event loop that drives Tokio I/O resources.


Event loop that drives Tokio I/O resources.

Note: This crate is deprecated in tokio 0.2.x and has been moved and refactored into various places in the tokio::runtime and tokio::io modules of the tokio crate. The Reactor has also been renamed the "I/O Driver".



The reactor is the engine that drives asynchronous I/O resources (like TCP and UDP sockets). It is backed by mio and acts as a bridge between mio and futures.

The crate provides:

  • Reactor is the main type of this crate. It performs the event loop logic.

  • Handle provides a reference to a reactor instance.

  • Registration and PollEvented allow third parties to implement I/O resources that are driven by the reactor.

Application authors will not use this crate directly. Instead, they will use the tokio crate. Library authors should only depend on tokio-reactor if they are building a custom I/O resource.
