Evergreen is a cooperative multitasking and i/o library for Python. It provides equivalent primitives to those for thread programming, but uses a cooperative model instead.

Operations are driven by an event loop which will run the given tasks and i/o operations in a non-blocking manner while presenting the user a synchronous, blocking API.


  • Cooperative multitasking
  • Cooperative synchronization primitives: locks, events, queues, channels
  • Futures API (almost) compatible with the standard library
  • Cooperative versions of several standard library modules
  • Ability to monkey patch standard library modules to make them cooperative

Running the test suite

There are several ways of running the test suite:

  • Running individual tests:

    Go inside the tests/ directory and run each individual test

  • Run the test with the current Python interpreter:

    From the toplevel directory, run: nosetests -v -w tests/

  • Use Tox to run the test suite in several virtualenvs with several interpreters

    From the toplevel directory, run: tox -e py26,py27,py32, py33 this will run the test suite on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3 (you'll need to have them installed beforehand)
