class RecentlyUsedContainer(maxsize=10, dispose_func=None)

Provides a thread-safe dict-like container which maintains up to maxsize keys while throwing away the least-recently-used keys beyond maxsize.

Parameters:
  • maxsize – Maximum number of recent elements to retain.
  • dispose_func – Every time an item is evicted from the container, dispose_func(value) is called. Callback which will get called

class HTTPHeaderDict(headers=None, **kwargs)
Parameters:
  • headers – An iterable of field-value pairs. Must not contain multiple field names when compared case-insensitively.
  • kwargs – Additional field-value pairs to pass in to dict.update.

A dict like container for storing HTTP Headers.

Field names are stored and compared case-insensitively in compliance with RFC 7230. Iteration provides the first case-sensitive key seen for each case-insensitive pair.

Using __setitem__ syntax overwrites fields that compare equal case-insensitively in order to maintain dict’s api. For fields that compare equal, instead create a new HTTPHeaderDict and use .add in a loop.

If multiple fields that are equal case-insensitively are passed to the constructor or .update, the behavior is undefined and some will be lost.

>>> headers = HTTPHeaderDict()
>>> headers.add('Set-Cookie', 'foo=bar')
>>> headers.add('set-cookie', 'baz=quxx')
>>> headers['content-length'] = '7'
>>> headers['SET-cookie']
'foo=bar, baz=quxx'
>>> headers['Content-Length']
'7'

If you want to access the raw headers with their original casing for debugging purposes you can access the private ._data attribute which is a normal python dict that maps the case-insensitive key to a list of tuples stored as (case-sensitive-original-name, value). Using the structure from above as our example:

>>> headers._data
{'set-cookie': [('Set-Cookie', 'foo=bar'), ('set-cookie', 'baz=quxx')],
'content-length': [('content-length', '7')]}
__init__(headers=None, **kwargs)
add(key, value)

Adds a (name, value) pair, doesn’t overwrite the value if it already exists.

>>> headers = HTTPHeaderDict(foo='bar')
>>> headers.add('Foo', 'baz')
>>> headers['foo']
'bar, baz'
getlist(key)

Returns a list of all the values for the named field. Returns an empty list if the key doesn’t exist.
