  • Best way to run parallel async http requests
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/learnpython | 23 Aug 2021
    I found examples of running parallel async http requests using grequests, but in its GitHub page it recommends using requests-threads or requests-futures instead. Which of them would be the most straightforward tool for optimizing a sequence of GET requests against an API. Case scenario: API endpoint provides paginated responses. With first response, I get the total of itens, which allow me to prepare all the remaining urls. The API allows for 25 simultaneous requests from a single user session (JWT token).
  • Scraping info from multiple links (from inside each link) that are listed on a webpage?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/webscraping | 20 Jun 2021
    I'd use an asynchronous programming package like grequests or Scrapy. Basically, store all the links you want to visit in a list then prepare them, send the requests, and then iterate over the content of the response. If the website needs JavaScript to then you can use requests-html with AsyncHTMLSession to render the JavaScript. ``` import grequests
  • FastAPI on a VPS - what will be the bottleneck
    1 project | reddit.com/r/FastAPI | 13 Jan 2021
    This video demonstrates Hosting FastAPI on Azure VM with Ubuntu. There are many factors to take into consideration on RAM and bandwidth. But to help you analyze the performance of your deployment, you can use grequests.
  • Celery vs Threads
    1 project | reddit.com/r/django | 12 Jan 2021
    If you're doing something in a view that is i/o bound, doesn't take very long, and you need to do a lot of it in parallel (eg. hit 10 different API endpoints in parallel) then you might use threads, or something like this to speed up your view. You can also use an offine task framework like Celery in these cases as well.
