Jupyterlab, Python3, asyncio – asynchronous tasks in a notebook background thread

Jupyterlab and IPython are always good for some surprises. Things that work in a standard Python task in Eclipse or at the prompt of a Linux shell may not work in a Python notebook within a Jupyterlab environment. One example where things behave a bit differently in Jupyterlab are asynchronous tasks. This post is about starting and stopping asynchronous tasks via the Python3 package “asyncio” in a Jupyterlab notebook. In addition we do not want to block the usage of further notebook cells despite long… Read More »Jupyterlab, Python3, asyncio – asynchronous tasks in a notebook background thread
