What is the quickest way to HTTP GET in Python?


Python 3:

import urllib.requestcontents = urllib.request.urlopen("http://example.com/foo/bar").read()

Python 2:

import urllib2contents = urllib2.urlopen("http://example.com/foo/bar").read()

Documentation for urllib.request and read.


You could use a library called requests.

import requestsr = requests.get("http://example.com/foo/bar")

This is quite easy. Then you can do like this:

>>> print(r.status_code)>>> print(r.headers)>>> print(r.content)


If you want solution with httplib2 to be oneliner consider instantiating anonymous Http object

import httplib2resp, content = httplib2.Http().request("http://example.com/foo/bar")
