Drop-in replacement for the requests library with random user agents as default.

Project description


Drop-in replacement for the requests library with random user agents as default. Designed for Attack/Defense CTF competitions.


$ pip install requestspwn


Just replace the import lines like this:

  • import requests to import requestspwn as requests
  • from requests to from requestspwn


from requestspwn import get
r = get('')

Additionally, you can provide a list of user agents to choose from:

from requestspwn import get
user_agents = [
	"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64;Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko",
	"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0"
r = get('', user_agents=user_agents)

You can also use one of the datasets provided by default:

from requestspwn import get
r = get('', user_agents='ructfe2017')

Additional notes

requestspwn will use a random user agent as default. If you pass a custom User-Agent header in the headers parameter, requestspwn will NOT replace it.

requestspwn wraps the request, head, get, post, put, patch, delete, options functions, and nothing else.
