httpx

HTTPX is a fully featured HTTP client library for Python 3, which provides sync and async APIs, and support for both HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2.

It is a drop-in replacement for the standard Python requests library and provides additional features such as HTTP/2 support, HTTP/2 server push, connection pooling, thread-safe connection management, and more.

HTTPX is designed to be easy to use, flexible, and performant, making it a great choice for building web applications and APIs.

To use HTTPX, you first need to install it using pip:

pip install httpx

Then, you can import it and start making HTTP requests. Here’s an example:

import httpx

response = httpx.get("<https://www.example.com>")
print(response.status_code)
print(response.text)

You can also use HTTPX’s async API for async requests. Here’s an example:

import httpx

async def main():
    async with httpx.AsyncClient() as client:
        response = await client.get("<https://www.example.com>")
        print(response.status_code)
        print(response.text)

asyncio.run(main())

HTTPX also provides many additional features, such as support for timeouts, authentication, cookies, proxies, and more. Check out the official documentation for more information.
