Discussion (with spoilers) of Relic.

🐘 I've just published atoot, a Mastodon API client library for Python's asyncio

github.com/popura-network/atoo

📖 Quickstart guide: atoot.readthedocs.io/en/latest

❓ How is it different from Mastodon.py?
atoot uses asynchronous I/O operations and provides an easy way to write complex concurrent software for Mastodon API.

❤️ I'm still working to make it a decent library with good docs and tests. If you find atoot useful, give it a GitHub star!
