Client library for the increase API

Project description

Increase Python API Library

PyPI version

The Increase Python library provides convenient access to the Increase REST API from any Python 3.7+ application. It includes type definitions for all request params and response fields, and offers both synchronous and asynchronous clients powered by httpx.


The API documentation can be found here.


pip install increase


from increase import Increase

increase = Increase(
    # defaults to os.environ.get("INCREASE_API_KEY")
    api_key="my api key",
    # defaults to "production".

account = increase.accounts.create({
    "name": "Jane Doe",


While you can provide an api_key keyword argument, we recommend using python-dotenv and adding INCREASE_API_KEY="my api key" to your .env file so that your API keys are not stored in source control.

Async Usage

Simply import AsyncIncrease instead of Increase and use await with each API call:

from increase import AsyncIncrease

increase = AsyncIncrease(
    # defaults to os.environ.get("INCREASE_API_KEY")
    api_key="my api key",
    # defaults to "production".

async def main():
    account = await increase.accounts.create({
        "name": "Jane Doe"

Functionality between the synchronous and asynchronous clients are otherwise identical.

Using Types

Request parameters are TypedDicts, while responses are Pydantic models. This helps provide autocomplete and documentation within your editor.

If you would like to see type errors in VS Code to help catch bugs earlier, set python.analysis.typeCheckingMode to "basic".


List methods in the Increase API are paginated.

This library provides auto-paginating iterators with each list response, so you do not have to request successive pages manually:

from typing import List
import increase

increase = Increase()

all_accounts = []
# Automatically fetches more pages as needed.
for account in increase.accounts.list():
    # Do something with account here
return all_accounts

Or, asynchronously:

import asyncio
from typing import List
import increase

increase = AsyncIncrease()

async def main() -> None:
    all_accounts = []
    # Iterate through items across all pages, issuing requests as needed.
    async for account in increase.accounts.list():
    return all_accounts

Alternatively, you can use the .has_next_page(), .next_page_params(), or .get_next_page() methods for more granular control working with pages:

first_page = await{"page_size": 2})
if first_page.has_next_page():
    print("will fetch next page, with params", first_page.next_page_params())
    next_page = await first_page.get_next_page()
    print(f"number of items we just fetched: {len(}")

# Remove `await` for non-async usage.

Or just work directly with the returned data:

first_page = await

print(f"page number: {}") # => "page number: 1"
for card in

# Remove `await` for non-async usage.

Handling errors

When the library is unable to connect to the API (e.g., due to network connection problems or a timeout), a subclass of increase.APIConnectionError is raised.

When the API returns a non-success status code (i.e., 4xx or 5xx response), a subclass of increase.APIStatusError will be raised, containing status_code and response properties.

All errors inherit from increase.APIError.

from increase import Increase

increase = Increase()

        "naem": "Oops"
except increase.APIConnectionError as e:
    print("The server could not be reached")
    print(e.__cause__) # an underlying Exception, likely raised within httpx.
except increase.RateLimitError as e:
    print("A 429 status code was received; we should back off a bit.")
except increase.APIStatusError as e:
    print("Another non-200-range status code was received")

Error codes are as followed:

Status Code Error Type
400 BadRequestError
401 AuthenticationError
403 PermissionDeniedError
404 NotFoundError
422 UnprocessableEntityError
429 RateLimitError
>=500 InternalServerError
N/A APIConnectionError


Certain errors will be automatically retried 2 times by default, with a short exponential backoff. Connection errors (for example, due to a network connectivity problem), 409 Conflict, 429 Rate Limit, and >=500 Internal errors will all be retried by default.

You can use the max_retries option to configure or disable this:

from increase import Increase

# Configure the default for all requests:
increase = Increase(
    # default is 2

# Or, configure per-request:
    "name": "Jack"
}, max_retries=5);


Requests time out after 60 seconds by default. You can configure this with a timeout option, which accepts a float or an httpx.Timeout:

from increase import Increase

# Configure the default for all requests:
increase = Increase(
    # default is 60s

# More granular control:
increase = Increase(
    timeout=httpx.Timeout(60.0, read=5.0, write=10.0, connect=2.0),

# Override per-request:
    "status": "open"
}, timeout=5 * 1000)

On timeout, an APITimeoutError is thrown.

Note that requests which time out will be retried twice by default.

Advanced: Configuring custom URLs, proxies, and transports

You can configure the following keyword arguments when instantiating the client:

import httpx
from increase import Increase

increase = Increase(
    # Use a custom base URL

See the httpx documentation for information about the proxies and transport keyword arguments.


This package is in beta. Its internals and interfaces are not stable and subject to change without a major semver bump; please reach out if you rely on any undocumented behavior.
