t.i.i.I.callFromThread(callable, *args, **kw) : method documentation

Part of twisted.internet.interfaces.IReactorThreads View Source

Cause a function to be executed by the reactor thread.

Use this method when you want to run a function in the reactor's thread from another thread. Calling callFromThread should wake up the main thread (where reactor.run() is executing) and run the given callable in that thread.

If you're writing a multi-threaded application the callable may need to be thread safe, but this method doesn't require it as such. If you want to call a function in the next mainloop iteration, but you're in the same thread, use callLater with a delay of 0.
