GET and POST requests
In this article, we'll talk about the Python implementations of the GET and POST HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) request methods.
What is HTTP?
A group of protocols known as HTTP are used to facilitate client-server communication. It functions as a client-server request-response protocol.
The client could be a web browser, and the server could be an application running on the computer that is hosting the website.
To request a response from the server, there are mainly two methods:
- GET: To get the response from the server.
- POST: To submit the data to the server.
