backports.method_request 1.0


Latest Version: 1.2


A backport of the urllib.request.MethodRequest class from Python 3.4 which allows overriding of the method in a class attribute or as a keyword parameter to the initializer.

See Python 18978 for details.

Works on Python 2.6 and later.


Use method_request.Request in place of urllib.request.Request:

from backports.method_request import Request

req = Request(..., method='PATCH')
resp = urllib.request.urlopen(req)


Initial release.
