t.w.h.HTTPClient(basic.LineReceiver) : class documentation

Part of twisted.web.http View Source View In Hierarchy

Known subclasses: twisted.protocols.shoutcast.ShoutcastClient, twisted.web.client.HTTPPageGetter, twisted.web.google.GoogleChecker, twisted.web.proxy.ProxyClient, twisted.web.xmlrpc.QueryProtocol, twisted.words.protocols.msn.PassportLogin, twisted.words.protocols.msn.PassportNexus

A client for HTTP 1.0

Notes: You probably want to send a 'Host' header with the name of the site you're connecting to, in order to not break name based virtual hosting.
Method sendCommand Undocumented
Method sendHeader Undocumented
Method endHeaders Undocumented
Method lineReceived Override this for when each line is received.
Method connectionLost Called when the connection is shut down.
Method handleResponseEnd Undocumented
Method handleResponsePart Undocumented
Method connectionMade Called when a connection is made.
Method rawDataReceived Override this for when raw data is received.

Inherited from LineReceiver:

Method clearLineBuffer Clear buffered data.
Method dataReceived Protocol.dataReceived. Translates bytes into lines, and calls lineReceived (or rawDataReceived, depending on mode.)
Method setLineMode Sets the line-mode of this receiver.
Method setRawMode Sets the raw mode of this receiver. Further data received will be sent to rawDataReceived rather than lineReceived.
Method sendLine Sends a line to the other end of the connection.
Method lineLengthExceeded Called when the maximum line length has been reached. Override if it needs to be dealt with in some special way.

Inherited from BaseProtocol (via LineReceiver, Protocol):

Method makeConnection Make a connection to a transport and a server.

Inherited from _PauseableMixin (via LineReceiver):

Method pauseProducing Undocumented
Method resumeProducing Undocumented
Method stopProducing Undocumented
def sendCommand(self, command, path): (source)
def sendHeader(self, name, value): (source)
def endHeaders(self): (source)
def lineReceived(self, line): (source)
Override this for when each line is received.
def connectionLost(self, reason): (source)

Called when the connection is shut down.

Clear any circular references here, and any external references to this Protocol. The connection has been closed.
Parametersreason (type: twisted.python.failure.Failure )
def handleResponseEnd(self): (source)
def handleResponsePart(self, data): (source)
def connectionMade(self): (source)

Called when a connection is made.

This may be considered the initializer of the protocol, because it is called when the connection is completed. For clients, this is called once the connection to the server has been established; for servers, this is called after an accept() call stops blocking and a socket has been received. If you need to send any greeting or initial message, do it here.
def rawDataReceived(self, data): (source)
Override this for when raw data is received.
