asyncio vs Celery: What are the differences?
Developers describe asyncio as "Asynchronous I/O, event loop, coroutines and tasks". This module provides infrastructure for writing single-threaded concurrent code using coroutines, multiplexing I/O access over sockets and other resources, running network clients and servers, and other related primitives. On the other hand, Celery is detailed as "Distributed task queue". Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.
asyncio belongs to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack, while Celery can be primarily classified under "Message Queue".
Celery is an open source tool with 13.1K GitHub stars and 3.36K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Celery's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Celery has a broader approval, being mentioned in 355 company stacks & 455 developers stacks; compared to asyncio, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.
