RequestsThrottler 0.2.0

Python HTTP requests throttler

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.2.3

RequestsThrottler is an Apache2 Licensed HTTP library, written in Python, and powered by futures and Requests. See the full documentation at http://pythonhosted.org/RequestsThrottler.

With RequestsThrottler you can easily throttle HTTP requests! After having created your throttler with a delay of your choice, you just have to:

  1. Start the throttler
  2. Submit your requests
  3. Shutdown the throttler

Here's an example:

import requests
from requests_throttler import BaseThrottler

bt = BaseThrottler(name='base-throttler', delay=1.5)
request = requests.Request(method='GET', url='http://www.google.com')
reqs = [request for i in range(0, 5)]

bt.start()
throttled_requests = bt.multi_submit(reqs)
bt.shutdown()

responses = [tr.response for tr in throttled_requests]

Too hard? Then just submit your requests inside a with statement! Here's an example:

import requests
from requests_throttler import BaseThrottler

with BaseThrottler(name='base-throttler', delay=1.5) as bt:
    request = requests.Request(method='GET', url='http://www.google.com')
    reqs = [request for i in range(0, 5)]
    throttled_requests = bt.multi_submit(reqs)

responses = [tr.response for tr in throttled_requests]
