The idea is that you integrate processing of UI events to
your event loop of choice. For instance, Twisted has
integration for QT and other libraries . This way you
can easily combine async network (or OS) calls with your
UI logic to avoid "callback hell".
Quick search for something like that for asyncio revealed
this library: . This small library actually re-implements
relevant low-level parts of the asyncio event loop on top of
QT primitives (another approach).
