Get the Source Code¶
Requests is actively developed on GitHub, where the code is always available.
You can either clone the public repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/psf/requests.git
Or, download the tarball:
$ curl -OL https://github.com/psf/requests/tarball/main
# optionally, zipball is also available (for Windows users).
Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your own Python package, or install it into your site-packages easily:
$ cd requests
$ python -m pip install .
