Description:
A comprehensive HTTP client library, ``httplib2`` supports many features left out of other HTTP libraries.
**HTTP and HTTPS**
HTTPS support is only available if the socket module was compiled with SSL support.
**Keep-Alive**
Supports HTTP 1.1 Keep-Alive, keeping the socket open and performing multiple requests over the same connection if possible.
**Authentication**
The following three types of HTTP Authentication are supported. These can be used over both HTTP and HTTPS.
* Digest
* Basic
* WSSE
**Caching**
The module can optionally operate with a private cache that understands the Cache-Control:
header and uses both the ETag and Last-Modified cache validators. Both file system
and memcached based caches are supported.
**All Methods**
The module can handle any HTTP request method, not just GET and POST.
**Redirects**
Automatically follows 3XX redirects on GETs.
**Compression**
Handles both 'deflate' and 'gzip' types of compression.
**Lost update support**
Automatically adds back ETags into PUT requests to resources we have already cached. This implements Section 3.2 of Detecting the Lost Update Problem Using Unreserved Checkout
**Unit Tested**
A large and growing set of unit tests.
