Streaming parser for multipart/form-data

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/siddhantgoel/streaming-form-data.svg?branch=stable https://badge.fury.io/py/streaming-form-data.svg https://readthedocs.org/projects/streaming-form-data/badge/?version=latest

streaming_form_data provides a Python parser for parsing multipart/form-data input chunks (the most commonly used encoding when submitting data over HTTP through HTML forms).

Installation

$ pip install streaming-form-data

In case you prefer cloning the Github repository and installing manually, please note that master is the development branch, so stable is what you should be working with.

Usage

>>> from streaming_form_data import StreamingFormDataParser
>>> from streaming_form_data.targets import ValueTarget, FileTarget, NullTarget
>>>
>>> headers = {'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data; boundary=boundary'}
>>>
>>> parser = StreamingFormDataParser(headers=headers)
>>>
>>> parser.register('name', ValueTarget())
>>> parser.register('file', FileTarget('/tmp/file.txt'))
>>> parser.register('discard-me', NullTarget())
>>>
>>> parser.data_received(chunk)

Documentation

Up-to-date documentation is available on Read the Docs.

Development

Please make sure you have Python 3.4+ installed.

  1. Git clone the repository - git clone https://github.com/siddhantgoel/streaming-form-data
  2. Install the packages required for development - make local
  3. That’s basically it. You should now be able to run the test suite - py.test.

Please note that tests/test_parser_stress.py stress tests the parser with large inputs, which can take a while. As an alternative, pass the filename as an argument to py.test to run tests selectively.
