(New in 2.0) This module provides basic cookie support for HTTP clients and servers. Example 7-20 shows its use.

Example 7-20. Using the cookie Module


import Cookie
import os, time

cookie = Cookie.SimpleCookie()
cookie["user"] = "Mimi"
cookie["timestamp"] = time.time()

print cookie

# simulate CGI roundtrip
os.environ["HTTP_COOKIE"] = str(cookie)


cookie = Cookie.SmartCookie()

for key, item in cookie.items():
 # dictionary items are "Morsel" instances
 # use value attribute to get actual value
 print key, repr(item.value)

Set-Cookie: timestamp=736513200;
Set-Cookie: user=Mimi;

user 'Mimi'
timestamp '736513200'
