Python Requests Async Client

If you are looking to send HTTP requests asynchronously in Python, then the Python Requests library offers an async client which allows for sending HTTP requests in an async manner. This can be useful for making multiple HTTP request calls without blocking the program execution.

To use the async client in Python Requests, you will need to install the requests[async] package. This package includes the necessary modules for sending async HTTP requests using Python Requests.

Using Async Client in Python Requests

Here is a simple example of using the async client in Python Requests:

import asyncio
import requests

async def make_request(url):
    response = await requests.get(url)

async def main():
    urls = [
    tasks = [make_request(url) for url in urls]
    await asyncio.gather(*tasks)
if __name__ == '__main__':

In this example, we define an async function make_request which takes a URL as input and sends an HTTP GET request to that URL using the Python Requests async client. We then define another async function main which creates a list of URLs and creates a list of tasks to be executed asynchronously using the async gather function. Finally, we use the function to run the async main function.

Alternative Async Libraries

Aside from Python Requests, there are other Python libraries that provide async support for sending HTTP requests. Some popular libraries include:

These libraries may offer different features and performance characteristics, so it's worth exploring them to see which best fits your needs.
