Support for asyncio via Python

Hi, could I check if there is anyone who has experience using, or knows how to use the Eikon API with the asyncio package for Python?

Eikon Data API doesn't provide async interfaces. However, you can run it in an executor. For example:

import eikon as ek
import asyncio

def set_app_key(app_key):
    ek.set_app_key(app_key)

def get_data(instruments, fields, condition=None):    
    df, err = ek.get_data(instruments,fields,condition)
    return df

def get_timeseries(instruments, fields, start_date, end_date, interval="daily"):   
    df  = ek.get_timeseries(instruments, fields, start_date, end_date, interval)
    return df

async def main():    
    loop = asyncio.get_running_loop();     
    await loop.run_in_executor(None, set_app_key,"<App key>")   
    df = await loop.run_in_executor(None, get_data, ["IBM"],["TR.PriceClose"])
    print(df)
    df = await loop.run_in_executor(None, get_timeseries, ["PTT.BK"],"*","2022-01-01","2022-01-31")
    print(df)

asyncio.run(main())

Hi @nick.zincone, thanks for this. What about for the Eikon data API?
