Project description

http is heavily inspired by the HTTP::Message distribution.


>>> from http import Request
>>> request = Request('GET', '')
>>> print request.method


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)

Install with “pip” command:
