Requests: HTTP for Humans — Requests v0.5.1 documentation

Most existing Python modules for sending HTTP requests are extremely verbose and cumbersome. Python’s builtin urllib2 module provides most of the HTTP capabilities you should need, but the api is thoroughly broken. It requires an enormous amount of work (even method overrides) to perform the simplest of tasks.

Things shouldn’t be this way. Not in Python.

>>> r = requests.get('https://api.github.com', auth=('user', 'pass'))
>>> r.status_code
>>> r.headers['content-type']

See the same code, without Requests.

Requests allow you to send HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, and DELETE HTTP requests. You can add headers, form data, multipart files, and parameters with simple Python dictionaries, and access the response data in the same way. It’s powered by urllib2, but it does all the hard work and crazy hacks for you.

Testing Applications with WebTest — WebTest v1.2 documentation

WebTest helps you test your WSGI-based web applications. This can be any application that has a WSGI interface, including an application written in a framework that supports WSGI (which includes most actively developed Python web frameworks – almost anything that even nominally supports WSGI should be testable).

Adobe Flash – crap to rule them all

This isn’t about a monopoly. Flash has been a standard for years, just like the PDF has been. Flash is viewable everywhere, for free, on most platforms.

This quotation is from a comment on Adobe’s weblog. I’ve never read such a nonsense, but this it seems is the usual thinking nowadays. It’s neither a standardI nor viewable everywhere, furthermore it’s not free. You pay for it in terms of security-drawbacks, resources and instability. Last not least it isn’t free of barriers, it’s in contrast a real pest for handicapped persons. PDF is a similar story, barely free or usable everywhere.

  1. maybe vulgo for de facto standard
