Async components

I am reading a lot about the movement from threads to async.
A have developed some components (like the powerview plugin and the first Honeywell plugin) and they were all based on REST requests to a hub using the request package.
Will the async movement require the plugins to be rewritten for async ? Like using the aiohttp package instead of the request package ?


I guess that at some point in the future components/platforms will become async as well. Not sure when. It’s very likely that requests will be replaced by aiohttp.

Hey @sanders did you find anything on this?

Want to convert already added August component to async.
