RFC 3986 compliant, Unicode-aware, scheme-agnostic replacement for urlparse.

For various reasons, the standard library urlparse module is not compliant with current Internet standards, does not provide Unicode support, and is generally unusable with proprietary URI schemes.

As stated in Lib/

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, Unicode-aware replacements for the most commonly used functions provided by urlparse.

The uritools module currently defines the following functions:


Split a URI string into a named tuple with five components:


The returned object is an instance of SplitResult.


Combine the elements of a tuple as returned by urisplit() into a complete URI as a string.

The parts argument can be any five-item iterable.

uritools.uricompose(scheme=None, authority=None, path=’‘, query=None, fragment=None, encoding=’utf-8’)

Compose a URI string from its components.

class uritools.SplitResult(scheme, authority, path, query, fragment)

Extend namedtuple to hold urisplit() results.

scheme:URI scheme or None if not present
authority:URI authority component or None if not present
path:URI path component, always present but may be empty
query:URI query component or None if not present
fragment:URI fragment component or None if not present
