restkit Package

restkit.request(url, method='GET', body=None, headers=None, **kwargs)

Quick shortcut method to pass a request

  • url: str, url string
  • method: str, by default GET. http verbs
  • body: the body, could be a string, an iterator or a file-like object
  • headers: dict or list of tupple, http headers
  • follow_redirect: follow redirection, by default False
  • max_follow_redirect: number of redirections available
  • filters http filters to pass
  • decompress: allows the client to decompress the response body
  • ** max_status_line_garbage**: defines the maximum number of ignorable lines before we expect a HTTP response’s status line. With HTTP/1.1 persistent connections, the problem arises that broken scripts could return a wrong Content-Length (there are more bytes sent than specified). Unfortunately, in some cases, this cannot be detected after the bad response, but only before the next one. So the client is abble to skip bad lines using this limit. 0 disable garbage collection, None means unlimited number of tries.
  • max_header_count: determines the maximum HTTP header count allowed. by default no limit.
  • manager: the manager to use. By default we use the global one.
  • response_class: the response class to use
  • timeout: the default timeout of the connection (SO_TIMEOUT)
  • max_tries: the number of tries before we give up a connection
  • wait_tries: number of time we wait between each tries.
  • ssl_args: ssl named arguments, See informations
