It is an open source library providing an asynchronous, event driven platform for building fast, reliable, and lightweight network applications. It leverages Rust's ownership and concurrency model to ensure thread safety.
Tokio is a tool in the Concurrency Frameworks category of a tech stack.
Tokio is an open source tool with 14.6K GitHub stars and 1.3K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Tokio's open source repository on GitHub

Top Alternatives to Tokio

  • Hyper

    Hyper

    Hyper.sh is a secure container hosting service. What makes it different from AWS (Amazon Web Services) is that you don't start servers, but start docker images directly from Docker Hub or other registries. ...

  • Actix

    Actix

    It is a simple, pragmatic and extremely fast web framework for Rust. Actors are objects which encapsulate state and behavior, they communicate exclusively by exchanging messages. ...

  • RxJS

    RxJS

    RxJS is a library for reactive programming using Observables, to make it easier to compose asynchronous or callback-based code. This project is a rewrite of Reactive-Extensions/RxJS with better performance, better modularity, better debuggable call stacks, while staying mostly backwards compatible, with some breaking changes that reduce the API surface. ...

  • Akka

    Akka

    Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM. ...

  • Netty

    Netty

    Netty is a NIO client server framework which enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It greatly simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket server. ...

  • Finagle

    Finagle

    Finagle is an extensible RPC system for the JVM, used to construct high-concurrency servers. Finagle implements uniform client and server APIs for several protocols, and is designed for high performance and concurrency. ...

  • Redux Observable

    Redux Observable

    It allows developers to dispatch a function that returns an observable, promise or iterable of action(s). Compose and cancel async actions to create side effects and more. ...

  • Orleans

    Orleans

    Orleans is a framework that provides a straightforward approach to building distributed high-scale computing applications, without the need to learn and apply complex concurrency or other scaling patterns. It was created by Microsoft Research and designed for use in the cloud. ...

      related Akka posts

      To solve the problem of scheduling and executing arbitrary tasks in its distributed infrastructure, PagerDuty created an open-source tool called Scheduler. Scheduler is written in Scala and uses Cassandra for task persistence. It also adds Apache Kafka to handle task queuing and partitioning, with Akka to structure the library’s concurrency.

      The service’s logic schedules a task by passing it to the Scheduler’s Scala API, which serializes the task metadata and enqueues it into Kafka. Scheduler then consumes the tasks, and posts them to Cassandra to prevent data loss.

      I decided to use Akka instead of Kafka streams because I have personal relationships at @Lightbend.
