[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.3.1, Package name: py27-geventhttpclient-1.3.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

A high performance, concurrent HTTP client library for python using gevent.

gevent.httplib support was removed in gevent 1.0, geventhttpclient now provides
that missing functionality.

geventhttpclient uses a fast http parser, written in C, originating from nginx,
extracted and modified by Joyent.

geventhttpclient has been specifically designed for high concurrency, streaming
and support HTTP 1.1 persistent connections. More generally it is designed for
efficiently pulling from REST APIs and streaming APIs like Twitter's.

Safe SSL support is provided by default. geventhttpclient depends on the
certifi CA Bundle. This is the same CA Bundle which ships with the Requests
codebase, and is derived from Mozilla Firefox's canonical set.
