Experimental lower-level async HTTP client for Requests 3.0


  • take urllib3 codebase
  • add async support (with multiple backends)
  • default to trio execution of async functions for blocking calls.
  • potentially, add h2 support (would be amazing, if feasable)


Async usage:

import requests_core

url = ""

async def main():
    r = await requests_core.request(method='GET', url=url, timeout=2)
>>> import trio
    HTTPHeaderDict({'connection': 'keep-alive', 'server': 'meinheld/0.6.1', 'date': 'Fri, 16 Mar 2018 11:59:57 GMT', 'content-type': 'application/json', 'access-control-allow-origin': '*', 'access-control-allow-credentials': 'true', 'x-powered-by': 'Flask', 'x-processed-time': '0', 'content-length': '53', 'via': '1.1 vegur'})
    b'{\n  "uuid": "693947c9-9f49-4b4a-be94-73a152ce1acb"\n}\n'

Sync usage:

>>> r = requests_core.blocking_request(method='GET', url=url, timeout=2)
>>> print(r)
<requests_core._http._async.response.HTTPResponse object at 0x103f63c88>


This is a work in progress. Don't install it.
