faster_than_requests new Version release!,
uploaded to PyPI, PIP installable,
we added new Documentation, Examples, Dockerfile, test, Proxy, FAQ, CoC, Debug, Bug Fixes, JSON helpers, Environment Variables awareness, +200 Commits, and a lot more to come!.
faster_than_requests its an alternative to the requests and HTTPS Clients on Python 3,
15 times faster than Requests, 2 times faster than PyCurl,
0 dependencies, 1 file, ~100 Lines of code.
The API is simple, instead of having a pair of functions with a lot of arguments that you should provide to make it work,
we have tiny functions with very few arguments that do one thing and do it as fast as possible.
Has extra functions requested by people and oriented towards
Data Science, Big Data, Open Data, Web Scrapping, working with HTTP REST JSON APIs.

We have a Docker to test drive it without installing anything.

New Documentation has all functions with detailed arguments and returns with types.

Requests depends on Urllib3

Requests now depends on Urllib3, making the total of Lines of Code >8.000.
8.000 Lines of Code to download a Cat Meme.
faster_than_requests replaces 8.000 LoC with ~100 LoC 🙂
We also have no Dependencies, nor Fundraising.
