HTTP in Python: which library for what task?
log in to bookmark this presentaton
HTTP in Python is very much a mixed bag of available technology. What's implemented mostly works well, but there are some frustrating gaps in different libraries that are poorly documented. I've gone wading through every HTTP library I can find for Python while trying to fix an obscure bug in Mercurial and decided to write my own. I'll cover what's available today and why I'm starting from scratch with a completely new implementation.
