python – How to retry after exception?

Do a while True inside your for loop, put your try code inside, and break from that while loop only when your code succeeds.

for i in range(0,100):
    while True:
            # do stuff
        except SomeSpecificException:

I prefer to limit the number of retries, so that if theres a problem with that specific item you will eventually continue onto the next one, thus:

for i in range(100):
  for attempt in range(10):
      # do thing
      # perhaps reconnect, etc.
    # we failed all the attempts - deal with the consequences.

UPDATE 2021-12-01:

As of June 2016, the retrying package is no longer being maintained.
Consider using the active fork, or alternatively

The retrying package is a nice way to retry a block of code on failure.

For example:

@retry(wait_random_min=1000, wait_random_max=2000)
def wait_random_1_to_2_s():
    print(Randomly wait 1 to 2 seconds between retries)
