13.5. AsyncIO Sleep

  • Coroutine asyncio.sleep(delay, result=None)

  • Delay can be int or float

  • Block for delay seconds.

  • If result is provided, it is returned to the caller when the coroutine completes

  • Delay is not guaranteed

  • It means that this is at least X number of seconds

  • This us due, that after that time of delay, there might still be an other function running

  • This does not interrupt or preempt

13.5.1. Example

>>> import asyncio
>>> async def main():
...     result = await asyncio.sleep(0.5, 'done')
...     print(result)
>>> asyncio.run(main())
