Using Requests Module

To use the requests module, you need to import it first:

import requests

Request Parameters

The requests.get() method also allows you to pass parameters with your request. These parameters are passed as a dictionary:

payload = {'key1': 'value1', 'key2': 'value2'}
response = requests.get('', params=payload)

This will send a GET request to with the parameters 'key1': 'value1' and 'key2': 'value2'.

response ='', data=payload)

This will send a POST request to with the data 'key1': 'value1' and 'key2': 'value2'.

HTTP Headers

You can also send HTTP headers with your requests using the headers parameter:

headers = {'user-agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/58.0.3029.110 Safari/537.36'}
response = requests.get('', headers=headers)

This will send a GET request to with the specified HTTP headers.
