Is Requests a Standard Library?

As far as I know, Requests is not a standard library in Python. Requests is actually an HTTP library for Python, which allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests extremely easily.

How do I check if Requests is installed?

You can check if Requests is installed in your Python environment by opening a Python interpreter and typing:

import requests

if requests.__name__ == 'requests':
    print("Requests library is installed!")
    print("Requests library is not installed.")

This should output "Requests library is installed!" if the library is installed. If you get an error message that "requests" module does not exist, then Requests is not installed on your system.

How do I install Requests?

If you don't have Requests installed, you can easily install it using pip, which is the package installer for Python. To install Requests, you can simply run the following command in your terminal:

pip install requests

This will install the latest version of Requests in your Python environment.


In summary, Requests is not a standard library in Python, but it is a popular third-party library that you can easily install using pip. With Requests, you can easily send HTTP/1.1 requests and handle the responses in your Python code.
