Using Proxy Server with Python Requests

To use a proxy server with Python requests, you can pass the proxy address to the Requests library method with the "proxies" parameter. The "proxies" parameter accepts a dictionary that can contain proxy servers for the HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols: proxies={"http": http_proxy, "https": https_proxy, "ftp" : ftp_proxy}. You can also specify proxy servers using the HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY, and FTP_PROXY environment variables (uppercase and lowercase names are supported). If both environment variables and the "proxies" parameter are specified, the Requests library will use the "proxies" value. In this Python Requests Proxy example, we are passing an HTTPS proxy to the request.get() method and requesting an "https" URL. Click Execute to run Python Proxy Example online and see the result.
