Python Requests Post HTTPS

If you are working with Python and you want to make a POST request to an HTTPS URL, you can use the Python Requests library. This library allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests extremely easily.


You can install the Requests library using pip. Just open up a terminal or command prompt and run the following command:

pip install requests

Sending a POST Request

To send a POST request with the Requests library, you first need to import the library:

import requests

Then, you can use the function to send a POST request:

response ='', data='some data')

The first argument to the function is the URL you want to send the request to. The second argument is the data that you want to send with the request.

Sending a POST Request with HTTPS

To send a POST request with HTTPS, you just need to change the URL to an HTTPS URL:

response ='', data='some data')

Requests will automatically handle the HTTPS encryption for you.

Multiple Ways to Send a POST Request

There are multiple ways to send a POST request with the Requests library. For example, you can send JSON data instead of form data:

response ='', json={'key1': 'value1', 'key2': 'value2'})

Or you can send files:

files = {'file': ('report.csv', 'some,data\n1,2,3\n')}
response ='', files=files)

There are many other options available as well, so be sure to check out the Requests library documentation for more information.
