What is the quickest way to HTTP GET in Python if I know the content will be a string? I am searching the documentation for a quick one-liner like:

contents = url.get(" ")

But all I can find using Google are httplib and urllib - and I am unable to find a shortcut in those libraries.

Does standard Python 2.5 have a shortcut in some form as above, or should I write a function url_get?

I would prefer not to capture the output of shelling out to wget or curl.

If you are using Python 3 you can use the below-mentioned code:-

import urllib.request 

contents = urllib.request.urlopen("").read()
