About

A python module to extract headers and POST data from a file containing intercepted HTTP request.

Let's say we have a file named request.txt that contains following HTTP request:

POST /user/follow HTTP/1.1
Host: www.website.com
User-Agent: some user agent
Accept: application/json, text/plain, */*
Accept-Language: pl,en-US;q=0.7,en;q=0.3
Referer: https://www.website.com/users/12345/profile
Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8
X-CSRF-TOKEN: Ab1/2cde3fGH
Content-Length: 27
Cookie: some-cookie=;
DNT: 1
Connection: close

{"targetUser":"12345"}

To send the above request using inbuilt functions of python like requests.get(), we need to explicitely specify each of the headers and values manually.

Here Burpee comes to save the day. It simply accepts name of the file containing the HTTP request as parameter and returns two things:

  • Dictionary: Headers and their respective values
  • String: Supplied Post data

Screenshot:

Demonstration:

As demonstrated in the above proofs, once we get dictionary of headers and post data, we can simply pass these headers and post data to functions like requests.get() , requests.post() etc.

Request can be directly requested by using the request() function in the module.
Burpee.burpee.request(file_name , https = [True/False]) takes two arguments:

  • Name of the file containing request
  • Whether to request HTTP or HTTPS

Since this function uses requests.get() and requests.post() from inside, hence it also returns the requests.models.Response object.

[NOTE]:

The request() function only supports two methods i.e. GET and POST
