Speedups

Hydrogram’s speed can be boosted up by using TgCrypto and uvloop.


TgCrypto

TgCrypto is a high-performance, easy-to-install cryptography library specifically written in C for Hydrogram as a Python extension. It is a replacement for a slower Python-only alternative and implements the cryptographic algorithms Telegram requires, namely: AES-256-IGE, AES-256-CTR and AES-256-CBC.

Installation

$ pip3 install -U tgcrypto

Usage

Hydrogram will automatically make use of TgCrypto when detected, all you need to do is to install it.

uvloop

uvloop is a fast, drop-in replacement of the built-in asyncio event loop. uvloop is implemented in Cython and uses libuv under the hood. It makes asyncio 2-4x faster.

Installation

$ pip3 install -U uvloop

Usage

Call uvloop.install() before calling asyncio.run() or app.run().

import asyncio
import uvloop

from hydrogram import Client


async def main():
    app = Client("my_account")

    async with app:
        print(await app.get_me())


uvloop.install()
asyncio.run(main())

The uvloop.install() call also needs to be placed before creating a Client instance.

import uvloop
from hydrogram import Client

uvloop.install()

app = Client("my_account")


@app.on_message()
async def hello(client, message):
    print(await client.get_me())


app.run()
