API Rate Limiting

Here is an example how to check rate limiting and throttle API calls based on that. For more information about Rate Limiting, see Sailthru Documentation

sailthru_client = SailthruClient(api_key, api_secret)

# ... make some api calls ...

rate_limit_info = sailthru_client.get_last_rate_limit_info('user', 'POST')

# get_last_rate_limit_info returns None if given endpoint/method wasn't triggered previously
if rate_limit_info is not None:
    limit = rate_limit_info['limit'];
    remaining = rate_limit_info['remaining'];
    reset_timestamp = rate_limit_info['reset'];

    # throttle api calls based on last rate limit info
    if remaining <= 0:
         seconds_till_reset = reset_timestamp - time.time()
         # sleep or perform other business logic before next user api call
         time.sleep(seconds_till_reset);
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
