I want to execute a curl command in python.

Usually, I just need to enter the command in terminal and press return key. However, I don't know how it works in python.

The command shows below:

curl -d @request.json --header "Content-Type: application/json" https://www.googleapis.com/qpxExpress/v1/trips/search?key=mykeyhere

There is a request.json file to be sent to get a response.

I searched a lot and got confused. I tried to write a piece of code, although I could not fully understand. It didn't work.

import pycurl 

import StringIO 

response = StringIO.StringIO() 

c = pycurl.Curl() 

c.setopt(c.URL, 'https://www.googleapis.com/qpxExpress/v1/trips/search?key=mykeyhere') 

c.setopt(c.WRITEFUNCTION, response.write) 

c.setopt(c.HTTPHEADER, ['Content-Type: application/json','Accept-Charset: UTF-8']) c.setopt(c.POSTFIELDS, '@request.json') 

c.perform() 

c.close() 

print response.getvalue() 

response.close()

The error message is 'Parse Error'.Can anyone tell me how to fix it? or how to get a response from the server correctly?

You can use the following code to execute a curl command:-

import requests 

r = requests.get('https://github.com/timeline.json') 

r.json()
