pygel is a pure-python event loop library that works on Python 2.7+, Python 3.4+ and PyPy as well
pygel implements its own event loop library from scratch using socketqueue
it was initially based on pygtk2/gobject interfaces but has gained its own life and its own interfaces and the pygtk2/gobject is no longer supported anymore
it can interface with another event libraries as Qt4, Qt5, Gi(work in progress), pygtk2(work in progress)
in some level it mimicks single flow application in some methods as: sleep, selector and @threaded_wrapper
A more deatailed documentation is in progress.
