HTTP resources as random-access file-like objects

Project description

HTTP resources as random-access file-like objects

httpio is a small Python library that allows you to access files served over HTTP as file-like objects. It differs from libraries like urllib and requests in that it supports seek() (which moves an internal pointer), and that read() makes a request with the Range header set. It also supports caching of contents using a configurable block size, and will reuse TCP connections where possible.

Installation

Use pip to install httpio:

$ pip install httpio

Usage

import zipfile
import httpio

url = "http://some/large/file.zip"
with httpio.open(url) as fp:
    zf = zipfile.ZipFile(fp)
    print(zf.namelist())
