Could you provide a link to your code? It β€˜s difficult to debug without being able to run the code and see what happens.

But too many requests could be caused by some kind of infinite loop. For instance, if the route you’re requesting redirects you back to the same route, you would end up with a β€œtoo many requests” status.
