User-Agent ConstructorΒΆ

Having well-formed user-agent strings is important for the proper functioning of the web. Make server administators happy by generating yourself a nice user-agent string, just like Requests does! The output of the user-agent generator looks like this:

>>> import requests_toolbelt
>>> requests_toolbelt.user_agent('mypackage', '0.0.1')
'mypackage/0.0.1 CPython/2.7.5 Darwin/13.0.0'

The Python type and version, and the platform type and version, will accurately reflect the system that your program is running on. You can drop this easily into your program like this:

from requests_toolbelt import user_agent
from requests import Session

s = Session()
s.headers = {
    'User-Agent': user_agent('my_package', '0.0.1')

r = s.get('')

This will override the default Requests user-agent string for all of your HTTP requests, replacing it with your own.
