Header Class

This class is used to represent a single header as an object. An Header can be casted to str, bytes and dict. Given this :

from kiss_headers import Header

header = Header("Content-Type", "text/html; charset=UTF-8")

str(header)  # output: 'text/html; charset=UTF-8'
repr(header)  # output: 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8'
bytes(header)  # output: b'Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8'
dict(header)  # output: {'text/html': None, 'charset': 'UTF-8'}


If you wish to run bellow examples, first do :

from kiss_headers import parse_it
from requests import get

headers = parse_it(get(''))

Check existence of an attribute in header

Choose any flavour you like when checking for an attribute like charset=utf-8.

'charset' in headers.content_type
# OR
hasattr(headers.content_type, 'charset')
# OR

Accessing an attribute

# OR
# OR

Remove an attribute

If attribute exists multiple times, this removes all entries.

del headers.content_type.charset
# OR
del headers.content_type['charset']

Remove a member from it

If adjective/member exists multiple times, this removes all entries.

headers.content_type -= 'text/html'

Create an attribute on the fly

headers.content_type.charset = 'utf-8'
# OR
headers.content_type['charset'] = 'utf-8'
