Is programming with Twisted really as awful as it sounds?

Early this week Can forwarded this post on Quora to me, which asks the question:

Is programming with Twisted really as awful as it sounds?

Yes. Yes. YES IT IS. HOLY CRAP IT’S AWFUL

Here’s some good alternatives:

  • Eventlet, my preference
  • gevent, an alternative to Eventlet tied to libevent
  • Java. because let’s face it, if you’re using Twisted, you’ve already decided not to write Python, so use something with proper threading support.

That is all.
