Requests: HTTP for Humans

.. image:: https://secure.travis-ci.org/kennethreitz/requests.png?branch=develop :target: https://secure.travis-ci.org/kennethreitz/requests

Requests is an ISC Licensed HTTP library, written in Python, for human beings.

Most existing Python modules for sending HTTP requests are extremely verbose and cumbersome. Python's builtin urllib2 module provides most of the HTTP capabilities you should need, but the api is thoroughly broken. It requires an enormous amount of work (even method overrides) to perform the simplest of tasks.

Things shouldn't be this way. Not in Python.

::

>>> r = requests.get('https://api.github.com', auth=('user', 'pass'))
>>> r.status_code
204
>>> r.headers['content-type']
'application/json'
>>> r.text
...

See the same code, without Requests <https://gist.github.com/973705>_.

Requests allow you to send HTTP/1.1 requests. You can add headers, form data, multipart files, and parameters with simple Python dictionaries, and access the response data in the same way. It's powered by httplib and urllib3 <https://github.com/shazow/urllib3>_, but it does all the hard work and crazy hacks for you.
