Python Requests Module Code

Python requests module is a simple way to send HTTP requests and handle responses in Python. It's easy to use and makes working with HTTP requests a breeze. The requests module allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests with parameters, cookies, and authentication.


You can install the requests module using pip, the package installer for Python. Open your terminal or command prompt and type:

pip install requests

Sending a GET Request

To send a GET request using the requests module, simply call the get() method and pass in the URL you want to make the request to:

import requests

response = requests.get("")


The get() method returns a Response object which contains the server's response to the request. You can access the content of the response using the content property.

Sending a POST Request

To send a POST request, you can use the post() method and pass in the URL and any data you want to send with the request:

import requests

payload = {"username": "john", "password": "doe"}

response ="", data=payload)


The post() method takes a second parameter, data, which is a dictionary of key-value pairs that represent the data you want to send with the request.

Syntax Highlighting

You can use the highlight.js library to add syntax highlighting to your code. Simply include the highlight.js library in your HTML file and add the class="python" attribute to any <pre><code> tags that contain Python code:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="//">
  <script src="//"></script>

  <pre><code class="python">import requests

response = requests.get("")


This will add syntax highlighting to the Python code in the <pre><code> tag.
