Calling a REST API from django view
Is there any way to make a RESTful api call from django view?
I am trying to pass header and parameters along a url from the django views. I am googling from half an hour but could not find anything interesting.
Any help would be appreciated
import requests def my_django_view(request): if request.method == 'POST': r = requests.post('https://www.somedomain.com/some/url/save', params=request.POST) else: r = requests.get('https://www.somedomain.com/some/url/save', params=request.GET) if r.status_code == 200: return HttpResponse('Yay, it worked') return HttpResponse('Could not save data')
The requests library is a very simple API over the top of urllib3, everything you need to know about making a request using it can be found here.
