Requests III: HTTP for Humans and Machines, alike.
Requests III is an HTTP library for Python, built for Humans and Machines, alike. This repository is a work in progress, and the expected release timeline is "before PyCon 2020".
Behold, the power of Requests III:
>>> from requests import HTTPSession
# Make a connection pool.
>>> http = HTTPSession()
# Make a request.
>>> r = http.request('get', 'https://httpbin.org/ip')
# View response data.
Requests III allows you to send organic, grass-fed HTTP/1.1 & HTTP/2 (wip) requests,
without the need for manual thought-labor. There's no need to add query
strings to your URLs, or to form-encode your POST data. Keep-alive and
HTTP connection pooling are 100% automatic, as well.
Besides, all the cool kids are doing it. Requests is one of the most
downloaded Python packages of all time, pulling in over ~1.6 million
installations per day!
Requests III is ready for today's web.
