A comprehensive HTTP client library.

Project Description

A comprehensive HTTP client library, httplib2 supports many features left out of other HTTP libraries.

HTTP and HTTPS
HTTPS support is only available if the socket module was compiled with SSL support.
Keep-Alive
Supports HTTP 1.1 Keep-Alive, keeping the socket open and performing multiple requests over the same connection if possible.
Authentication

The following three types of HTTP Authentication are supported. These can be used over both HTTP and HTTPS.

  • Digest
  • Basic
  • WSSE
Caching
The module can optionally operate with a private cache that understands the Cache-Control: header and uses both the ETag and Last-Modified cache validators. Both file system and memcached based caches are supported.
All Methods
The module can handle any HTTP request method, not just GET and POST.
Redirects
Automatically follows 3XX redirects on GETs.
Compression
Handles both ‘deflate’ and ‘gzip’ types of compression.
Lost update support
Automatically adds back ETags into PUT requests to resources we have already cached. This implements Section 3.2 of Detecting the Lost Update Problem Using Unreserved Checkout
Unit Tested
A large and growing set of unit tests.
