Project description

Per-host rate limiting for asynchronous web scraping

TravisCI codecov Python 3.7 Python 3.7 Python 3.8 Python 3.9

Usage

from host_rate_limit import RateLimiter

host_requests_per_sec = {
    'www.amazon.com': (1.25, 3), # wait between 1/3 and 1/1.25 seconds between dispatching requests to amazon.com
    'www.ebay.com': 0.33, # wait 1/0.33 second between dispatching requests to amazon.com
    'twitter.com': 1, # send 1 request per second to twitter.com
}

rate_limiter = RateLimiter(default_rate_limit=(1,2), # send between 1 and 2 requests per second to every host that is not listed in host_requests_per_sec
                           host_requests_per_sec=host_requests_per_sec)

async def request(url):
    await rate_limiter.maybe_sleep(url)
    # request would be dispatched now..
    # response = await http_client.get(url)

# asynchronously dispatch a batch of requests.
# urls: List[str]
await asyncio.gather(
    *[asyncio.create_task(request(url)) for url in urls])
