When I assign an array of data to be POSTed as a cURL option (via CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS), do I need to urlencode that data first or will that be taken care of?
I would like to marshal in and out of x-www-form-urlencoding similar to how you can do it with json or xml. Is there an existing package to do this, or are there any documents on how to implement one myself if none exist?
String url = serverUrl + metadata.getUri();response = restTemplate.exchange(url, metadata.getAction(), requestEntity, metadata.getResponseType());
url contains the string
Spring RestTemplate encodes it to the following when requesting to server
FYI, I need to disable URL encoding so that the '\' characters are available on server side as it is a business requirement since our web server (Nginx) has been configured to perform some checks based on the path of the request containing '\' character.
parse function in
>>> import urllib>>> urllib.parse.quote('(a+b)')... '%28a%2Bb%29'
>>> encodeURIComponent('(a+b)')... "(a%2Bb)"
Why is the python function more "strict" when encoding the url component?
If I understood it right, brackets are not reserved characters in urls. So I don't understand why they are escaped in the urllib parse function.
I'm writing a Python script to fetch Korean vocabulary pronunciation. I have a URL ready to go, and when I open the URL in Safari, it retrieves the expected JSON from the server.
When I use
requests to get the JSON, the call fails and no results are found.
Using Charles, I can see that the URL with my original query, a Hangul word, is URL encoded after I paste the URL into Safari and hit enter. For example, the instance of 소식 in the URL string becomes
%EC%86%8C%EC%8B%9D on its way out.
However, when I make that same request with
requests, the word is encoded as
%E1%84%89%E1%85%A9%E1%84%89%E1%85%B5%E1%86%A8. Both encodings can be decoded back to the original word 소식 (using a web app to confirm). The former encoding is accepted by the server, the latter is not.
Why would I be getting a different encoding from
Query string comes into the script as 소식
query = sys.argvsys.stderr.write(query) -> 소식
Interpolating the query into the URL string yields ...json/word/소식... when printing it.
Going through Charles it now looks like this
/json/word/%E1%84%89%E1%85%A9%E1%84%89%E1%85%B5%E1%86%A8/. Everything is default, no specified encoding.
