furl

furl is a small Python library that makes manipulating URLs simple.

Python's standard urllib and urlparse modules provide a number of URL manipulation functions, but using these functions to perform common URL manipulations proves tedious. Furl makes manipulating URLs simple.

Furl is Unlicensed in the public domain so you can build amazing things.

Query arguments are easy. Really easy.

>>> from furl import furl
>>> f = furl('http://www.google.com/?one=1&two=2')
>>> f.args['three'] = '3'
>>> del f.args['one']
>>> f.url
'http://www.google.com/?two=2&three=3'

Or use furl's inline modification methods.

>>> furl('http://www.google.com/?one=1').add({'two':'2'}).url
'http://www.google.com/?one=1&two=2'

>>> furl('http://www.google.com/?one=1&two=2').set({'three':'3'}).url
'http://www.google.com/?three=3'

>>> furl('http://www.google.com/?one=1&two=2').remove(['one']).url
'http://www.google.com/?two=2'

Encoding is handled for you.

>>> f = furl('http://www.google.com/')
>>> f.path = 'some encoding here'
>>> f.args['and some encoding'] = 'here, too'
>>> f.url
'http://www.google.com/some%20encoding%20here?and+some+encoding=here,+too'

Fragments have a path and a query, too.

>>> f = furl('http://www.google.com/')
>>> f.fragment.path.segments = ['two', 'directories']
>>> f.fragment.args = {'one':'argument'}
>>> str(f)
'http://www.google.com/#two/directories?one=argument'
