Extension to Python `requests` functionality.

Project description


Extension of Python HTTP requests with verbose logging using pyfortified-logging, and robust handling for Downloading files containing JSON, CSV, and XML data formats and Streaming.

Important Note

This Python project is a refactoring of requests-mv-integration for the purpose of general usage intent.

Work In Progress

The following still needs to be performed for this Python project:

  • Unit-testing: This project will be switching over to using Python native Unit testing framework unittest.

  • More concise documentation is required.

  • Travis CI

  • Badges



pip install pyfortified_requests


pyfortified-requests is an extension of the Python package requests and it is used for handling all HTTP requests including APIs in REST and SOAP, screen scrapping, and handling response downloads in JSON, XML, and CSV.
