Project description

requests-random-user-agent Build Status PyPI

Configures the requests library to randomly select a desktop User-Agent. See the full list in requests_random_user_agent/useragents.txt.

Installation

pip install requests-random-user-agent

Usage

import requests
import requests_random_user_agent

s = requests.Session()
print(s.headers['User-Agent'])

# Without a session

User-Agents are randomized per-session or per-request. Individual HTTP requests without a session will each have a random User-Agent selected from the list in useragents.txt.
