How do I send a POST request using the Python Requests Library?

To send a POST request using Python Requests Library, you must call the requests.post(url, data = my_data) method and specify the target URL as the first parameter and the POST data as the second parameter. You must also specify the data type in the body of the POST message, using the Content-Type request header, so that the server can correctly accept and process the sent data. In this Python requests post example, the Content-Type: application/json header indicates that the body of the POST message contains JSON, and the Accept: application/json request header tells the server that the client is expecting a JSON in response.
