WSGI request and response object

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/Pylons/webob.png?branch=master Documentation Status

WebOb provides objects for HTTP requests and responses. Specifically it does this by wrapping the WSGI request environment and response status/headers/app_iter(body).

The request and response objects provide many conveniences for parsing HTTP request and forming HTTP responses. Both objects are read/write: as a result, WebOb is also a nice way to create HTTP requests and parse HTTP responses.

1.7.1 (2017-01-16)

Bugfix

  • Response.__init__ would discard app_iter when a Response had no body, this would cause issues when app_iter was an object that was tied to the life-cycle of a web application and had to be properly closed. app_iter is more advanced API for Response and thus even if it contains a body and is thus against the HTTP RFC’s, we should let the users shoot themselves by returning a body. See https://github.com/Pylons/webob/issues/305

1.7.0 (2016-12-22)

Compatibility

  • WebOb is no longer supported on Python 2.6 and PyPy3 (due to pip no longer supporting Python 3.2 even on PyPy)

Backwards Incompatibility

  • Response.content_type removes all existing Content-Type parameters, and if the new Content-Type is “texty” it adds a new charset (unless already provided) using the default_charset. See https://github.com/Pylons/webob/pull/301
  • Response.set_cookie no longer accepts a key argument. This was deprecated in WebOb 1.5 and as mentioned in the deprecation, is being removed in 1.7
  • Response.__init__ will no longer set the default Content-Type, nor Content-Length on Responses that don’t have a body. This allows WebOb to return proper responses for things like Response(status=‘204 No Content’).
  • Response.text will no longer raise if the Content-Type does not have a charset, it will fall back to using the new default_body_encoding`. To get the old behaviour back please sub-class ``Response and set default_body_encoding to None. See https://github.com/Pylons/webob/pull/287
  • WebOb no longer supports Chunked Encoding, this means that if you are using WebOb and need Chunked Encoding you will be required to have a proxy that unchunks the request for you. Please read https://github.com/Pylons/webob/issues/279 for more background.
