Part of twisted.web.client View Source View In Hierarchy
Known subclasses: twisted.web.client.HTTPPageDownloader
Gets a resource via HTTP, then quits.Typically used with
HTTPClientFactory. Note that this class does not, by itself, do anything with the response. If you want to download a resource into a file, use
|Method||connectionMade||Called when a connection is made.|
|Method||handleHeader||Called every time a header is received. Stores the header information as
key-value pairs in the
|Method||handleStatus||Called when the status-line is received.|
|Method||handleEndHeaders||Called when all headers have been received.|
|Method||connectionLost||Called when the connection is shut down.|
Inherited from HTTPClient:
|Method||extractHeader||Given a complete HTTP header, extract the field name and value and process the header.|
|Method||lineReceived||Parse the status line and headers for an HTTP request.|
|Method||handleResponseEnd||The response has been completely received.|
|Method||rawDataReceived||Override this for when raw data is received.|
|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.|
|Method||makeConnection||Make a connection to a transport and a server.|
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.
|Parameters||key||An HTTP header field name.
|value||An HTTP header field value.
Called when the connection is shut down.Clear any circular references here, and any external references to this Protocol. The connection has been closed.
