Throwing this in my blog so I don’t forget again. The way to sleep for a certain period of time using tornado.gen is:
import tornado.web import tornado.ioloop from tornado import gen class MyHandler(tornado.web.RequestHandler): @tornado.web.asynchronous @gen.engine def get(self): self.write("sleeping .... ") # Do nothing for 5 sec yield gen.Task(loop.add_timeout, time.time() + 5) self.write("I'm awake!") self.finish()
Simple once you see it, but for some reason this has been the hardest for me to get used to.
