Starting from Python 3.2, concurrent.futures provides a high-level interface for asynchronously executing callables (for older versions there is a Futures Backport)

The concurrent.futures.Future class encapsulates the asynchronous execution of a callable and Pizco has in-built support for it. Instead of returning a Future, the Server will store it and notify the Proxy. The proxy then returns a client-side Future connected to the original server-side Future. The usage is just like normal Futures (there are just that after all!):

from myproject import Robot

from pizco import Proxy

robot = Proxy('tcp://')

# Move is a method from robot that returns a Future
fut = robot.think('What do you get if you multiply six by nine?')

# Do something here

# fut is an instance of `Future`, therefore you can use the
# methods and properties described in the Python docs
answer = fut.result()


Future.cancel() is not currently implemented.
