http provides a few components to build HTTP messages:

  • Headers: a class to manipulates HTTP headers
  • Request: a class to encapsulate a HTTP request
  • Response: a class to encapsulate a HTTP response
  • Date: a class to convert date to and from ISO 8601
  • Url: a class to manipulate url


>>> from http import Headers
>>> h = Headers()
>>> h.add('Content-Type', 'application/json')


>>> from http import Request
>>> r = Request('GET', 'htttp://')


>>> from http import Response
>>> r = Response(200)
