Probably an integration of sockets with the main loop to allow for
Qt has a socket class that will deliver events when data is received or
transmitted. It's a long time that I had a look at this, but I think
it's available from PyQt as well.
Alternatively, I have successfully used Quamash, which is an integration
of the Qt event loop with asyncio.
For new projects, I would always recommend to use asyncio as this is
available in the standard library.
For wxPython there is some code to integrate with asyncio, but I have
never used this myself.
Alternatively, the communication can always be placed into a separate
thread, posting events to the main application / frontend.
