-    <h2><a href="/blog/2017/04/09/async-rfc.html">Have your say - async support in Apache Libcloud</a></h2>
-  
-
-  
-    
-  
-  <span class="post-date-author">By Anthony Shaw on Apr 09, 2017</span>
-
-  <div class="post-content">
-    <p>One of the big requests whilst we were replacing <code>httplib</code> with the <code>requests</code> package in 2.0 was why didn&#39;t
-we use a HTTP library that supports <em>asynchronous</em> API calls.</p>
-
-<p>The intention for 2.0 and replacing the HTTP backend classes was to improve the usability of the project, by making SSL
-certificates easier to manage, improving the maintainability of our source code by using an active 3rd party package and
-also improving performance and stability.</p>
-
-<p>Apache Libcloud already has documentation on threaded libraries like gevent and callback-based libraries like Twisted, see
-<a href="https://libcloud.readthedocs.io/en/latest/other/using-libcloud-in-multithreaded-and-async-environments.html">using libcloud in multithreaded environments</a>
-for examples.</p>
-
-<p><a href="https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#">PEP 492</a>, implemented in Python 3.5 provides a new coroutine protocol using methods,
-<code>__await__</code> for classes, a coroutine method wrapper, or a method that returns a coroutine object.
-Also async <a href="https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#asynchronous-iterators-and-async-for">iterators</a> and <a href="https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#asynchronous-context-managers-and-async-with">context managers</a>
-have been introduced.</p>
-
-<p>We would like to take advantage of the new language features by offering APIs in Apache Libcloud without breaking backward compatibility and
-compatibility for users of &lt;Python 3.5.</p>
-
-<p>Use cases for this would be:</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li>Being able to fetch <code>Node</code> or <code>StorageObject</code>s from multiple geographies or drivers simultaneously.</li>
-<li>Being able to quickly upload or download storage objects by parallelizing operations on the <code>StorageDriver</code>.</li>
-<li>Being able to call a long-running API method (e.g. generate report), whilst running other code.</li>
-</ul>
-
-<h2>Design 1 - async context managers <a href="https://github.com/apache/libcloud/pull/1016">PR 1016</a></h2>
-
-<p>This design would allow drivers to operate in 2 modes, the first is for synchronous method calls, they return list or object
-data as per usual. The second mode, API methods like <code>NodeDriver.list_nodes</code> would return a <a href="https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#coroutine-objects">coroutine object</a>
-and could be awaited or gathered using an event loop.</p>

-<h2>Design 2 - Additional methods in each driver for coroutines <a href="https://github.com/apache/libcloud/pull/1027">PR 1027</a></h2>
-
-<p>This is the second design concept for async support in Libcloud.</p>
-
-<p>The concept here is to have Asynchronous Mixins, <code>LibcloudConnection</code> uses requests and <code>LibcloudAsyncConnection</code> uses aiohttp for async transport <a href="https://github.com/tonybaloney/libcloud/blob/d4fe097476d2f02941e17d5e1b1d405fcf44c0f7/libcloud/connection_async.py#L22-L42">see</a></p>
-
-<p>The LibcloudAsyncConnection is an implementation detail of AsyncConnection, which is the API for the drivers to consume <a href="https://github.com/tonybaloney/libcloud/blob/d4fe097476d2f02941e17d5e1b1d405fcf44c0f7/libcloud/common/base.py#L742-L778">see</a></p>
-
-<p>The drivers then use this mixin for their custom connection classes, e.g.</p>
-<div class="highlight"><pre><code class="python language-python" data-lang="python"><span class="k">class</span> <span class="nc">GoogleStorageConnection</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="n">ConnectionUserAndKey</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="n">AsyncConnection</span><span class="p">):</span>
-    <span class="o">...</span>
-</code></pre></div>
-<p>They then inherit from <code>libcloud.storage.base.StorageAsyncDriver</code>, which uses a new set of base methods, e.g. <code>iterate_containers_async</code> and can be implemented like this:</p>
-<div class="highlight"><pre><code class="python language-python" data-lang="python">        <span class="n">async</span> <span class="k">def</span> <span class="nf">iterate_containers_async</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="bp">self</span><span class="p">):</span>

-            <span class="k">if</span> <span class="n">response</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">status</span> <span class="o">==</span> <span class="n">httplib</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">OK</span><span class="p">:</span>
-                <span class="n">containers</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="bp">self</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">_to_containers</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="n">obj</span><span class="o">=</span><span class="n">response</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">object</span><span class="p">,</span>
-                                                 <span class="n">xpath</span><span class="o">=</span><span class="s">&#39;Buckets/Bucket&#39;</span><span class="p">)</span>
-                <span class="k">return</span> <span class="n">containers</span>
-
-            <span class="k">raise</span> <span class="n">LibcloudError</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="s">&#39;Unexpected status code: </span><span class="si">%s</span><span class="s">&#39;</span> <span class="o">%</span> <span class="p">(</span><span class="n">response</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">status</span><span class="p">),</span>

-<h2>Design 3 - Initializer with &quot;<em>async</em>&quot; mode</h2>
-
-<p>This option is similar to 2, except that if a driver is instantiated with &quot;<code>async=True</code>&quot;,
-then all driver class methods would return coroutine objects. Internally, it would
-patch the Connection class with the AsyncConnection class.</p>
-
-<p>The downside of this is that all method calls to a driver would need to be awaited or used
-by an event loop.</p>

-<p>Got a better idea? Have an API or design, the question we&#39;re asking is

-    <title>Have your say - async support in Apache Libcloud</title>
-    <link href="https://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2017/04/09/async-rfc.html" />
-    <id>https://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2017/04/09/async-rfc.html</id>
-    <updated>2017-04-09T00:00:00+10:00</updated>
-    <author>
-      <name>Anthony Shaw</name>

-    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;One of the big requests whilst we were replacing &lt;code&gt;httplib&lt;/code&gt; with the &lt;code&gt;requests&lt;/code&gt; package in 2.0 was why didn&amp;#39;t
-we use a HTTP library that supports &lt;em&gt;asynchronous&lt;/em&gt; API calls.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;The intention for 2.0 and replacing the HTTP backend classes was to improve the usability of the project, by making SSL
-certificates easier to manage, improving the maintainability of our source code by using an active 3rd party package and
-also improving performance and stability.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Apache Libcloud already has documentation on threaded libraries like gevent and callback-based libraries like Twisted, see
-&lt;a href=&quot;https://libcloud.readthedocs.io/en/latest/other/using-libcloud-in-multithreaded-and-async-environments.html&quot;&gt;using libcloud in multithreaded environments&lt;/a&gt;
-for examples.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#&quot;&gt;PEP 492&lt;/a&gt;, implemented in Python 3.5 provides a new coroutine protocol using methods,
-&lt;code&gt;__await__&lt;/code&gt; for classes, a coroutine method wrapper, or a method that returns a coroutine object.
-Also async &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#asynchronous-iterators-and-async-for&quot;&gt;iterators&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#asynchronous-context-managers-and-async-with&quot;&gt;context managers&lt;/a&gt;
-have been introduced.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;We would like to take advantage of the new language features by offering APIs in Apache Libcloud without breaking backward compatibility and
-compatibility for users of &amp;lt;Python 3.5.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Use cases for this would be:&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;ul&gt;
-&lt;li&gt;Being able to fetch &lt;code&gt;Node&lt;/code&gt; or &lt;code&gt;StorageObject&lt;/code&gt;s from multiple geographies or drivers simultaneously.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;li&gt;Being able to quickly upload or download storage objects by parallelizing operations on the &lt;code&gt;StorageDriver&lt;/code&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;li&gt;Being able to call a long-running API method (e.g. generate report), whilst running other code.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;/ul&gt;
-
-&lt;h2&gt;Design 1 - async context managers &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/apache/libcloud/pull/1016&quot;&gt;PR 1016&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;This design would allow drivers to operate in 2 modes, the first is for synchronous method calls, they return list or object
-data as per usual. The second mode, API methods like &lt;code&gt;NodeDriver.list_nodes&lt;/code&gt; would return a &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0492/#coroutine-objects&quot;&gt;coroutine object&lt;/a&gt;
-and could be awaited or gathered using an event loop.&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;asyncio&lt;/span&gt;
-
-&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;integration.driver.test&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;TestNodeDriver&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.async_util&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;AsyncSession&lt;/span&gt;
-
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;TestNodeDriver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;apache&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;libcloud&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
-
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;def&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nf&quot;&gt;run&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;():&lt;/span&gt;
-    &lt;span class=&quot;c&quot;&gt;# regular API call&lt;/span&gt;
-    &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;nodes&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;list_nodes&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;()&lt;/span&gt;
-
-    &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;with&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;AsyncSession&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;as&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async_instance&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;:&lt;/span&gt;
-        &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;nodes&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;await&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async_instance&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;list_nodes&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;()&lt;/span&gt;
-
-    &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;assert&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nb&quot;&gt;len&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;nodes&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;==&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;mi&quot;&gt;2&lt;/span&gt;
-
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;loop&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;asyncio&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_event_loop&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;()&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;loop&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;run_until_complete&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;run&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;())&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;loop&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;close&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;()&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
-&lt;h2&gt;Design 2 - Additional methods in each driver for coroutines &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/apache/libcloud/pull/1027&quot;&gt;PR 1027&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;This is the second design concept for async support in Libcloud.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;The concept here is to have Asynchronous Mixins, &lt;code&gt;LibcloudConnection&lt;/code&gt; uses requests and &lt;code&gt;LibcloudAsyncConnection&lt;/code&gt; uses aiohttp for async transport &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/tonybaloney/libcloud/blob/d4fe097476d2f02941e17d5e1b1d405fcf44c0f7/libcloud/connection_async.py#L22-L42&quot;&gt;see&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;The LibcloudAsyncConnection is an implementation detail of AsyncConnection, which is the API for the drivers to consume &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/tonybaloney/libcloud/blob/d4fe097476d2f02941e17d5e1b1d405fcf44c0f7/libcloud/common/base.py#L742-L778&quot;&gt;see&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;The drivers then use this mixin for their custom connection classes, e.g.&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;class&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nc&quot;&gt;GoogleStorageConnection&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;ConnectionUserAndKey&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;AsyncConnection&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;):&lt;/span&gt;
-    &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;...&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
-&lt;p&gt;They then inherit from &lt;code&gt;libcloud.storage.base.StorageAsyncDriver&lt;/code&gt;, which uses a new set of base methods, e.g. &lt;code&gt;iterate_containers_async&lt;/code&gt; and can be implemented like this:&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;        &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;def&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nf&quot;&gt;iterate_containers_async&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;bp&quot;&gt;self&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;):&lt;/span&gt;
-            &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;response&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;await&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;bp&quot;&gt;self&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;connection&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;request_async&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;/&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
-            &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;if&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;response&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;status&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;==&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;httplib&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;OK&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;:&lt;/span&gt;
-                &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;containers&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;bp&quot;&gt;self&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;_to_containers&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;obj&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;response&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;object&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt;
-                                                 &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;xpath&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;Buckets/Bucket&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
-                &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;return&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;containers&lt;/span&gt;
-
-            &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;raise&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;LibcloudError&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;Unexpected status code: &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;si&quot;&gt;%s&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;%&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;response&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;status&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;),&lt;/span&gt;
-                                &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;bp&quot;&gt;self&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
-&lt;p&gt;Now the consumer can more or less do this:&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.storage.providers&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_driver&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.storage.types&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;Provider&lt;/span&gt;
-

-&lt;h2&gt;Design 3 - Initializer with &amp;quot;&lt;em&gt;async&lt;/em&gt;&amp;quot; mode&lt;/h2&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;This option is similar to 2, except that if a driver is instantiated with &amp;quot;&lt;code&gt;async=True&lt;/code&gt;&amp;quot;,
-then all driver class methods would return coroutine objects. Internally, it would
-patch the Connection class with the AsyncConnection class.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;The downside of this is that all method calls to a driver would need to be awaited or used
-by an event loop.&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.storage.providers&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_driver&lt;/span&gt;

-&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;asyncio&lt;/span&gt;
-
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;GoogleStorageDriver&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_driver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;Provider&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;GOOGLE_STORAGE&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
-&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;GoogleStorageDriver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;key&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;KEY&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;secret&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;SECRET&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;async&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;bp&quot;&gt;True&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;

-&lt;h1&gt;Give us feedback&lt;/h1&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Got a better idea? Have an API or design, the question we&amp;#39;re asking is 
-&amp;quot;if you wanted to use Libcloud for an async application, what would the code look like?&amp;quot; This helps us design
-the API and the implementation details can follow.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Feel free to comment on the mailing list or on the pull requests, or raise your own pull-request with an API design.&lt;/p&gt;

+    <title>Experimental support for the requests package</title>
+    <link href="https://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2016/04/06/requests-support.html" />
+    <id>https://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2016/04/06/requests-support.html</id>
+    <updated>2016-04-06T00:00:00+02:00</updated>

+    <content type="html">&lt;h2&gt;Background&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;I&amp;#39;ve just pushed a branch of the latest version of libcloud using the popular &lt;code&gt;requests&lt;/code&gt; package by Kenneth Reitz instead of our home-rolled HTTP client library.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;This article is for both users and developers of libcloud. If you want to give feedback, please join the developer mailing list.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h2&gt;Why?&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;requests is the defacto standard - it would be in the standard library but agreed against to allow it to develop faster https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/issues/2424&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;it works with python 2.6-&amp;gt;3.5&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Our SSL experience has a lot to be desired for Windows users, having to download the CA cert package and setting environment variables just to get SSL working&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Developers can use requests_mock for deeper integration testing&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;less code to maintain&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;the role of libcloud is for cloud abstraction, we provide no value in writing and maintaining our own HTTP client library&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;h2&gt;Benefits of requests&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;There are a number of benefits to having a requests package&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;The client library code is smaller, leaner and simpler.&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Requests has built in decompression support, we no longer need to support this&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Requests has built in RAW download, upload support, helping with our storage drivers&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;h2&gt;Implications of the change&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;There are no longer 2 classes (&lt;code&gt;LibcloudHTTPSConnection&lt;/code&gt; and &lt;code&gt;LibcloudHTTPConnection&lt;/code&gt;) to be provided to each driver, they are now 1 class - &lt;code&gt;LibcloudConnection&lt;/code&gt;. You probably won&amp;#39;t notice this because it is a property of the &lt;code&gt;Connection&lt;/code&gt; class, but
+if you are developing or extending functionality then it is implicated.&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Unit tests will look slightly different (see below)&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;This change broke 4200 unit tests (out of 6340)! I&amp;#39;ve since fixed them all since they were coupled to the original implementation, but now I don&amp;#39;t know if all of tests are valid.&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;h2&gt;Testing with requests&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Unit tests that were written like this:&lt;/p&gt;

+&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
+&lt;h1&gt;Check it out!&lt;/h1&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The package is on my personal apache site, you can download it and install it in a virtualenv for testing.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;&lt;code&gt;pip install -e http://people.apache.org/~anthonyshaw/libcloud/1.0.0-rc2-requests/apache-libcloud-1.0.0-rc2-requests.zip@feature#egg=apache-libcloud&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The hashes are my &lt;a href=&quot;http://people.apache.org/%7Eanthonyshaw/libcloud/1.0.0-rc2-requests/&quot;&gt;apache space&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Have a look at the &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/apache/libcloud/pull/728/files&quot;&gt;PR and the change set&lt;/a&gt; for a list of changes&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h1&gt;What might break?&lt;/h1&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;What I&amp;#39;m really looking for is for users of Libcloud to take 15 minutes, an existing (working) libcloud script, install this package in a virtualenv and just validate
+that there are no regression bugs with this change.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;I&amp;#39;m particularly sceptical about the storage drivers.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Once we have enough community feedback, we will propose a vote to merge this into trunk for future release.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h2&gt;Credit&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Credit to dz0ny on IRC for contributing some of the requests patch.&lt;/p&gt;

+    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;With Libcloud 1.0.0 around the corner, it&amp;#39;s time to have a spring clean of the compute drivers. Granted, it&amp;#39;s not spring everywhere -actually
+I&amp;#39;m writing from Sydney, Australia where it&amp;#39;s definitely summer.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Looking at the 52 providers in the 0.21.0 release, I have identified 5 providers that are no longer available or open.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;CloudFrames
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Looks dead - website doesn&amp;#39;t work, can&amp;#39;t see any references to this online.&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;code&gt;libcloud.compute.drivers.cloudframes&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;HP Public Cloud (Helion)
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/ticket/2566&quot;&gt;Shut down on 31st of January 2016&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;code&gt;libcloud.compute.drivers.hpcloud&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;IBM SmartCloud Enterprise
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10/31/ibm_to_shutter_smartcloud_enterprise_moves_customers_to_softlayer/&quot;&gt;Shut down 2014, customers instructed to move to SoftLayer&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;code&gt;libcloud.compute.drivers.ibm_sce&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Ninefold
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.itnews.com.au/news/ninefold-to-shut-down-411312&quot;&gt;Ninefold shut down in January 2016&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;code&gt;libcloud.compute.drivers.ninefold&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Opsource
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;Dimension Data acquired OpSource in 2012, the Opsource driver is succeeded by the Dimension Data driver.&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;code&gt;libcloud.compute.drivers.opsource&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;h3&gt;Handling deprecated drivers&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;For 1.0.0, we need a clean and user-friendly way of handling deprecated drivers as well as keeping the repository clean from legacy code.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The most obvious implementation is that calls to &lt;code&gt;get_driver(Provider.NINEFOLD)&lt;/code&gt; as an example will return a user error message saying
+this provider is no longer supported with a link to a new article and an alternative solution.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Currently, users trying to instantiate a HPE public cloud driver for example will get a connection error, which is not user friendly.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h3&gt;New compute drivers in 1.0.0-pre2&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The upcoming release, so currently available in trunk contains some new compute drivers.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/compute/drivers/ntta.html&quot;&gt;NTT America Public Cloud&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
