Project Description

Requests-Raven is a custom Requests class to log onto Raven, the University of Cambridge’s central web authentication service.


$ pip install requests_raven


Detailed documentation available at


The Raven class logs onto Raven and establishes a connection with the host. The session attribute returns a Request Session object with all the methods of the main Requests API.

>>> from requests_raven import Raven

# Establish Raven connection object for the website
>>> deets = {'userid': 'ab123', 'pwd': 'XXXX'}
>>> conn = Raven(url='', login=deets)

# The final destination url looks something like this.
>>> conn.url

# Use session attribute to access Requests methods.
>>> url = '{}/content/130/4/1623.full'.format(conn.url)
>>> request = conn.session.get(url)
>>> request.status_code

# Do stuff with your request object.
>>> from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
>>> soup = BeautifulSoup(request.text, 'html.parser')
>>> soup.title
<title>Behavioral Hazard in Health Insurance </title>

JSTOR, EBSCOhost and Wiley are Raven subclasses specifically for logging onto, and, respectively. They include the html, pdf and ref methods to download the webpage HTML, PDF and bibliographic information of a particular document.

>>> from requests_raven import JSTOR

# Establish Raven connection object for the website
>>> conn = JSTOR(login=deets)

# Download the HTML of the JSTOR webpage for the article with document id 10.1068/682574.
>>> doc_id = '10.1086/682574'
>>> html = conn.html(id=doc_id)

# Download the document PDF.
>>> pdf = conn.pdf(id=doc_id, file='article.pdf')

# Download the bibliographic information.
>>> biblio = conn.ref(id=doc_id)
>>> biblio['authors']
[{'name': 'Per Krusell'}, {'name': 'Anthony A. Smith'}]
