After looking around and asking, it appears there is no built-in integration of the tkinter and asyncio event loops. That would seem to be a good thing, at least as an example. I wrote a simple hello world which creates an AsyncTk class and uses asyncio-driven event handling. This is clearly incomplete, but might be a useful starting point, even if just as a seed for discussion or as an example for tkinter or asyncio documentation.

Discussion/thread references:

The code in its most basic form is attached. (I have another version which uses pynput to track keyboard and mouse events.)

I did some somewhat similar experiments a few years ago.  I will try to find the code sometime.

It is a duplicate of issue27546.

That's fine. My brief search didn't turn up

I'm happy to close this.

That issue has my previous experiments.  Thank you Serhiy for finding it ;-).
