asyncio port of Requests: "Python HTTP for Humans".

Project description

Requests is an Apache2 Licensed HTTP library, written in Python, for human beings.

yieldfrom.Requests is the same library, ported to run under Python’s asyncio.

Where in regular Requests you would write:

>>> r = requests.get('', auth=('user', 'pass'))
>>> r.status_code
>>> r.headers['content-type']
>>> r.text

in yieldfrom.Requests you write:

>>> r = yield from requests.get('', auth=('user', 'pass'))
>>> r.status_code
>>> r.headers['content-type']
>>> yield from r.text

The get method and the text property involve I/O latency, hence are called as coroutines. The headers and status_code attributes are still plain attributes.

The feature set is the same as the original, though a few methods work slightly differently.

The .stream() method does not stream, but preloads all data, and simulates a stream, so existing dependencies can work with minimal conversion.
