How do I use a proxy server with Python Requests?

To use proxies with Python requests, you need to create a "proxies" variable that defines a list of proxies. The variable "proxies" should be a dictionary that maps the protocol to the proxy URL. Then create a variable response that uses any of the request methods. The method will take two arguments: the generated URL variable and a specific dictionary. When proxy picking is not overridden in Python, then by default, the Request libraries rely on the proxy setting, fit with the default "http_proxy", "https_proxy", "no_proxy", and "curl_ca_bundle" environment variables. In this Python example, we create a dictionary "proxies" that identifies the proxy server and maps to a URL. Then we create the variable "r", which uses the GET request method and takes a URL variable and a dictionary as arguments. Click Execute to run Python Proxy Example online and see the result.
