Frequently Asked Questions¶
- ... What is circuits?
- circuits is an event-driven framework with a high focus on Component architectures making your life as a software developer much easier. circuits allows you to write maintainable and scalable systems easily
- ... Can I write networking applications with circuits?
- Yes absolutely. circuits comes with socket I/O components for tcp, udp and unix sockets with asynchronous polling implementations for select, poll, epoll and kqueue.
- ... Can I integrate circuits with a GUI library?
- This is entirely possible. You will have to hook into the GUI’s main loop.
- ... What are the core concepts in circuits?
- Components and Events. Components are maintainable reusable units of behavior that communicate with other components via a powerful message passing system.
- ... How would you compare circuits to Twisted?
- Others have said that circuits is very elegant in terms of it’s usage. circuits’ component architecture allows you to define clear interfaces between components while maintaining a high level of scalability and maintainability.
- ... Can Components communicate with other processes?
- Yes. circuits implements currently component bridging and nodes
- ... What platforms does circuits support?
- circuits currently supports Linux, FreeBSD, OSX and Windows and is currently continually tested against Linux and Windows against Python versions 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6
- ... Can circuits be used for concurrent or distributed programming?
- Yes. We also have plans to build more distributed components into circuits making distributing computing with circuits very trivial.
