Parsing headers from string or dictionary

Project description

Parsing headers from string or dictionary


Install and update using pip:

$ pip install parserheader

parserheader supports Python 2 and newer, Python 3 and newer, and PyPy.


What does it look like? Here is an example of a simple parserheader program:

import parserheader


def setHeaders():
    ph = parserheader.parserheader()
    header_str = """
        POST /upload/ HTTP/1.1
        Connection: keep-alive
        Content-Length: 1220
        Cache-Control: max-age=0
        Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1
        Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
        User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/73.0.3683.86 Safari/537.36
        Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8,application/signed-exchange;v=b3
        Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
        Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9,id;q=0.8
        Cookie: PHPSESSID=41a0f0ac4545d3f5ba9a4ba415b777e9
    headers = ph.parserHeader(header_str)
    print("headers =", headers)
    return headers


And what it looks like when run:

$ python
headers = {'Origin': '', 'Content-Length': '1220', 'Accept-Language': 'en-US,en;q=0.9,id;q=0.8', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Accept': 'text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8,application/signed-exchange;v=b3', 'User-Agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/73.0.3683.86 Safari/537.36', 'Host': '', 'Referer': '', 'Cache-Control': 'max-age=0', 'Cookie': 'PHPSESSID=41a0f0ac4545d3f5ba9a4ba415b777e9', 'Upgrade-Insecure-Requests': '1', 'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'}
