Python Requests Output

Python Requests is a popular library for making HTTP requests in Python. It simplifies the process of sending HTTP/1.1 requests and handling responses by abstracting the underlying sockets and HTTP protocol into a higher-level API.

Using Requests to Send HTTP Requests

To send an HTTP request using Python Requests, you first need to import the library:

      import requests

Once you have imported the requests module, you can use it to send an HTTP request using the requests.get() method. This method takes a URL as its argument and returns a Response object that contains the server's response to your request.

      response = requests.get('')

The above code sends a GET request to the specified URL and stores the server's response in the response variable.

Working with HTTP Responses

The Response object returned by the requests.get() method contains various attributes and methods that allow you to access the server's response and perform various operations on it.

  • The .status_code attribute contains the HTTP status code returned by the server.
  • The .text attribute contains the response body as a string.
  • The .json() method can be used to parse the response body as JSON.
  • The .headers attribute contains a dictionary of the response headers.

Here is an example of how to access some of these attributes:

      response = requests.get('')

The above code sends a GET request to the specified URL and prints out the HTTP status code, content type, and response body.

Outputting Requests using HTML Div and Code Tags

If you want to output the response from a Python Requests request in HTML, you can use the <div> and <pre><code> tags. Here is an example:

      response = requests.get('')
      output_div = '<div><pre><code class="python">' + response.text + '</code></pre></div>'

The above code sends a GET request to the specified URL and outputs the response body in an HTML <div><pre><code> block with syntax highlighting using the highlight.js library.

There are other ways to output responses from Python Requests requests in HTML, but this is one common method that provides syntax highlighting for the response body.
