pdfcrowd appengine python api timing out

philipfc wrote on 2013-08-27:
I am currently receiving "pdfcrowd error: Deadline exceeded while waiting for HTTP response from URL:" when a conversion takes more than 5 seconds. I want to change the time limit to be 60 seconds which I think is the app engine max allowed timeout (or whatever the pdfcrowd max timeout is) .

Is there a parameter in the pdfcrowd API that makes this change easy or do I need to update the client library you provided?

I'm not familiar with GAE but adding the following to your code should resolve the issue:
from google.appengine.api import urlfetch

That fix seems to be working. Thank you.
