How do I set a timeout in Python Requests?

To set a timeout in Python Requests, you can pass the "timeout" parameter for GET, POST, PUT, HEAD, and DELETE methods. The "timeout" parameter allows you to select the maximum time (number of seconds) for the request to complete. By default, requests do not have a timeout unless you explicitly specify one. It is recommended to set a timeout for nearly all requests; otherwise, your code may freeze, and your program will become non-responsive. If the remote server is slow, or you want to wait for the request to complete, you can tell the request library to wait forever by passing "None" as the value for the timeout parameter. In this Python Example, we pass a timeout parameter in the GET request to indicate how long to wait for a server response. Click Execute to run Python Timeout Example online and see the result.
