Feel free to comment with what you learnt and/or reference your TIL post to give it some more exposure.


Summarize a concept that is new to you.

And remember, if something you learnt was a big win for you, then you know where to drop it as well.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

I've learned that:

import requests

response = requests.get(url, timeout=None)

doesn't have the same meaning as:

import httpx

response = httpx.get(url, timeout=None)

If you want the same behavior with httpx than the requests code, you need to do the following:

import httpx

timeout = httpx.Timeout(connect_timeout=None, read_timeout=None, write_timeout=None)
response = httpx.get(url, timeout=timeout)
