I am having trouble sending data to a website and getting a response in Python. I have seen similar questions, but none of them seem to accomplish what I am aiming for.

This is my C# code I'm trying to port to Python:

    static void Request(Uri selectedUri)

    {

        HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(selectedUri);

        request.ServicePoint.BindIPEndPointDelegate = BindIPEndPointCallback;

        request.Method = "GET";

        request.Timeout = (int)Timeout.TotalMilliseconds;

        request.ReadWriteTimeout = (int)Timeout.TotalMilliseconds;

        request.CachePolicy = CachePolicy;

        request.UserAgent = UserAgent;

        using (HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse())

        {

            using (StreamReader responseReader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream()))

            {

                string responseText = responseReader.ReadToEnd();

                File.WriteAllText(UrlFileName, responseText.Trim(), Encoding.ASCII);

            }

        }

     }

Here is my attempt in Python:

def request():

web = httplib.HTTPConnection(' https://someurl.com ');

headers = {"Content-type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded", "Accept": "text/plain"}

web.request("GET", "/heartbeat.jsp", headers);

response = web.getresponse();

stream = ""; #something is wrong here

Any help would be appreciated!

You can use the urllib module's request method. NOTE that in Python 2 you need to use urllib2 module.

Python 3:

import urllib.request

contents = urllib.request.urlopen("https://intellipaat.com").read()

Python 2:

import urllib2

contents = urllib2.urlopen("https://intellipaat.com").read()
