Python interface to libcurl
PycURL is a Python interface to libcurl, the multiprotocol file transfer library. Similarly to the urllib Python module, PycURL can be used to fetch objects identified by a URL from a Python program. Beyond simple fetches however PycURL exposes most of the functionality of libcurl, including
- Speed - libcurl is very fast and PycURL, being a thin wrapper above libcurl, is very fast as well. PycURL was benchmarked to be several times faster than requests.
- Features including multiple protocol support, SSL, authentication and proxy options. PycURL supports most of libcurl’s callbacks.
- Multi and share interfaces.
- Sockets used for network operations, permitting integration of PycURL into the applications’ I/O loop e.g., using Tornado.
