Getting started with urllib2 - QuotaGuard Static

This example assumes your QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL environment variable is set and contains your unique connection string.

urllib2 is a basic library used for HTTP communication in Python and uses environment variables to set a proxy service.

In your application initialization you should set the http_proxy variable to match the QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL.

Assign QuotaGuard to your environment’s http_proxy variable:

os.environ['http_proxy'] = os.environ['QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL']

To test in the Python interpreter:

import urllib2, os

os.environ['http_proxy'] = os.environ['QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL']
url = ''
proxy = urllib2.ProxyHandler()

opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy)
in_ =

res =
print res
