hrequests is a feature rich modern replacement for a famous requests library for Python. It provides a feature rich HTTP client capable of resisting popular scraper identification techniques: - Seamless transition between headless browser and http client based requests - Integrated HTML parser - Mimicking of real browser TLS fingerprints - Javascript rendering - HTTP2 support - Realistic browser headers

Nestful is a Ruby library for making HTTP requests. It is designed to provide a simple, easy-to-use interface for making requests and handling responses. Nestful is often used for making requests to RESTful APIs.

One of the main features of Nestful is its ability to automatically parse JSON and XML responses and return them as Ruby objects. This allows developers to easily access the data returned by an API without having to manually parse the response.

Netful is aimed at interacting with rest APIs and provides a convenient interface (see example below)

Example Use


hrequests has almost identical API and UX as requests and here's a quick overview:
import hrequests

# perform HTTP client requests
resp = hrequests.get('https://httpbin.org/html')
print(resp.status_code)
# 200

# use headless browsers and sessions:
session = hrequests.Session('chrome', version=122, os="mac")

# supports asyncio and easy concurrency
requests = [
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.google.com/', browser='firefox'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.duckduckgo.com/'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.yahoo.com/'),
    hrequests.async_get('https://www.httpbin.org/'),
]
responses = hrequests.map(requests, size=3)  # max 3 conccurency
require 'nestful'

# GET request
response = Nestful.get('http://httpbin.org/get')
puts response.body
puts response.code
puts response.headers

# POST request
response = Nestful.post(
    'http://httpbin.org/post', 
    :format => :json, :payload => { :title => 'foo', :body => 'bar', :userId => 1 }
)
puts response.body

# establish interface to a specific API
class Charge < Nestful::Resource
  endpoint 'https://api.stripe.com/v1/charges'
  options :auth_type => :bearer, :password => 'sk_bar'

  def self.all
    self.new(get)
  end

  def self.find(id)
    self.new(get(id))
  end

  def refund
    post(:refund)
  end
end

Charge.all #=> []
Charge.find('ch_bar').amount
