  • How can I speed up python requests?

  • Best way to run parallel async http requests
    3 projects | | 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).
