Simple, easy-to-use throttler for asyncio.


import time
import random
import asyncio

from asyncio_throttle import Throttler

async def worker(no, throttler, n):
    for _ in range(n):
        await asyncio.sleep(random.random() * 2)

        async with throttler:
            print(time.time(), 'Worker #%d: Bang!' % no)

async def main():
    throttler = Throttler(rate_limit=5)

    tasks = [
        loop.create_task(worker(no, throttler, 10))
            for no in range(5)
    await asyncio.wait(tasks)

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

Here I limited work rate to 5/sec while there are 5 workers.


$ pip install asyncio-throttle


asyncio_throttle.Throttler introduces simple APIs: flush() and acquire(). But you will not be interested in those because you can just use it within with statement and it looks nicer.

First, create a throttler given desired rate limit. For example if you want to limit rate to 500/min, you can make it as:

from asyncio_throttle import Throttler

throttler = Throttler(rate_limit=500, period=60)

Then whenever you want to do some jobs which should have limited rate(e.g. sending request to server), Put it in async with statement:

async with throttler:

It’s that easy. asyncio_throttler can be easily integrated with aiohttp too:

async def worker(throttler, session):
    while True:
        async with throttler:
            async with session.get('') as resp:
                do_some_job_with(await resp.text())

        await asyncio.sleep(0.05)
