python requests

  1. Installation: If you haven’t already installed the requests library, you can do so using pip:bashCopy codepip install requests
  2. Importing: Import the requests library in your Python script or interactive session:pythonCopy codeimport requests
  3. Making GET Requests: You can make a simple GET request to a URL using the requests.get() function. Here’s an example:pythonCopy codeimport requests response = requests.get("") # Check if the request was successful (HTTP status code 200) if response.status_code == 200: print(response.text) # Print the content of the response else: print("Request failed with status code:", response.status_code)
  4. Passing Parameters: You can include query parameters in your GET request by passing them as a dictionary to the params parameter of requests.get().pythonCopy codeimport requests params = {'param1': 'value1', 'param2': 'value2'} response = requests.get("", params=params)
  5. Making POST Requests: To make a POST request, use You can include data or JSON payload in the request:pythonCopy codeimport requests data = {'key1': 'value1', 'key2': 'value2'} response ="", data=data)
  6. Handling JSON Responses: If the response from the server is in JSON format, you can easily parse it:pythonCopy codeimport requests response = requests.get("") data = response.json()
  7. Handling Headers and Authentication: You can set request headers and handle authentication by passing them as parameters to the request functions.pythonCopy codeimport requests headers = {'User-Agent': 'MyApp/1.0'} auth = ('username', 'password') response = requests.get("", headers=headers, auth=auth)
