The docs give a fair indicator of what's required., however requests allow us to skip a few steps:

You only need to install the security package extras (thanks @admdrew for pointing it out)

$ pip install requests[security]

or, install them directly:

$ pip install pyopenssl ndg-httpsclient pyasn1

Requests will then automatically inject pyopenssl into urllib3


If you're on ubuntu, you may run into trouble installing pyopenssl, you'll need these dependencies:

$ apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev


If you are not able to upgrade your Python version to 2.7.9, and want to suppress warnings,

you can downgrade your 'requests' version to 2.5.3:

pip install requests==2.5.3

Bugfix disclosure / Warning introduced in 2.6.0
