URI parsing, classification and composition

Project description

Latest PyPI version CI build status Documentation build status Test coverage SourceRank License Code style: black

This module provides RFC 3986 compliant functions for parsing, classifying and composing URIs and URI references, largely replacing the Python Standard Library’s urllib.parse module.

>>> from uritools import uricompose, urijoin, urisplit, uriunsplit
>>> uricompose(scheme='foo', host='', port=8042,
...            path='/over/there', query={'name': 'ferret'},
...            fragment='nose')
>>> parts = urisplit(_)
>>> parts.scheme
>>> parts.authority
>>> parts.getport(default=80)
>>> parts.getquerydict().get('name')
>>> parts.isuri()
>>> parts.isabsuri()
>>> urijoin(uriunsplit(parts), '/right/here?name=swallow#beak')

For various reasons, urllib.parse and its Python 2 predecessor urlparse are not compliant with current Internet standards. As stated in Lib/urllib/

RFC 3986 is considered the current standard and any future changes to urlparse module should conform with it. The urlparse module is currently not entirely compliant with this RFC due to defacto scenarios for parsing, and for backward compatibility purposes, some parsing quirks from older RFCs are retained.

This module aims to provide fully RFC 3986 compliant replacements for the most commonly used functions found in urllib.parse. It also includes functions for distinguishing between the different forms of URIs and URI references, and for conveniently creating URIs from their individual components.


uritools is available from PyPI and can be installed by running:
