http request/response parser

Project Description

http-parser

HTTP request/response parser for Python compatible with Python 2.x (>=2.6), Python 3 and Pypy. If possible a C parser based on http-parser from Ryan Dahl will be used.

http-parser is under the MIT license.

Project url: https://github.com/benoitc/http-parser/

Requirements:

  • Python 2.6 or sup. Pypy latest version.
  • Cython if you need to rebuild the C code (Not needed for Pypy)

Installation

$ pip install http-parser

Or install from source:

$ git clone git://github.com/benoitc/http-parser.git
$ cd http-parser && python setup.py install

Note: if you get an error on MacOSX try to install with the following arguments:

$ env ARCHFLAGS=”-arch i386 -arch x86_64” python setup.py install

Usage

http-parser provide you parser.HttpParser low-level parser in C that you can access in your python program and http.HttpStream providing higher-level access to a readable,sequential io.RawIOBase object.

To help you in your day work, http-parser provides you 3 kind of readers in the reader module: IterReader to read iterables, StringReader to reads strings and StringIO objects, SocketReader to read sockets or objects with the same api (recv_into needed). You can of course use any io.RawIOBase object.

Example of HttpStream

ex:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket

from http_parser.http import HttpStream
from http_parser.reader import SocketReader

def main():
    s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
    try:
        s.connect(('gunicorn.org', 80))
        s.send("GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: gunicorn.org\r\n\r\n")
        r = SocketReader(s)
        p = HttpStream(r)
        print p.headers()
        print p.body_file().read()
    finally:
        s.close()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

Example of HttpParser:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket

# try to import C parser then fallback in pure python parser.
try:
    from http_parser.parser import HttpParser
except ImportError:
    from http_parser.pyparser import HttpParser


def main():

    p = HttpParser()
    s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
    body = []
    try:
        s.connect(('gunicorn.org', 80))
        s.send("GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: gunicorn.org\r\n\r\n")

        while True:
            data = s.recv(1024)
            if not data:
                break

            recved = len(data)
            nparsed = p.execute(data, recved)
            assert nparsed == recved

            if p.is_headers_complete():
                print p.get_headers()

            if p.is_partial_body():
                body.append(p.recv_body())

            if p.is_message_complete():
                break

        print "".join(body)

    finally:
        s.close()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()
