Standard library requests with additional functional utilities.

Retry operation

Implements request retry if the previous request failed, up to the specified number of retries. Using backoff factor, you can control the interval between request attempts such as:

delay = backoff * (2 ^ retry)

Alternatively, you can explicitly define intervals=[...] with the list values being the number of seconds to wait between each request attempt. In this case, backoff is ignored and retries is overridden accordingly with the number of items specified in the list.

Furthermore, retry_after (default: True) indicates if HTTP status code 429 (Too Many Requests) should be automatically handled during retries. If enabled and provided in the previously failed request response through the Retry-After header, the next request attempt will be executed only after the server-specified delay instead of following the calculated delay from retries and backoff, or from corresponding index of interval, accordingly to specified parameters. This will avoid uselessly calling the server and automatically receive a denied response. You can disable this feature by passing False, which will result into requests being retried blindly without consideration of the called server instruction.

Because different request implementations use different parameter naming conventions, all following keywords are looked for:

  • Both variants of backoff and backoff_factor are accepted.

  • All variants of retires, retry and max_retries are accepted.


Total amount of executed request attempts will be +1 the number of retries or intervals items as first request is done immediately, and following attempts are done with the appropriate delay.

File Transport Scheme

Any request with file:// scheme or empty scheme (no scheme specified) will be automatically handled as potential local file path. The path should be absolute to ensure it to be correctly resolved.

All access errors due to file permissions return 403 status code, and missing file returns 404. Any other IOError types are converted to a 400 responses.

SSL Verification

Allows SSL verify option to be enabled or disabled according to configuration settings or explicit parameters. Any variation of verify or ssl_verify keyword arguments are considered. If they all resolve to True, then application settings are retrieved from weaver.ini to parse additional SSL options that could disable it.

Following weaver settings are considered :
  • weaver.ssl_verify = True|False

  • weaver.request_options = request_options.yml


Argument settings must also be provided through any supported container by get_settings() to retrieve and apply any weaver-specific configurations.

  • method – HTTP method to set request.

  • url – URL of the request to execute.

  • retries – Number of request retries to attempt if first attempt failed (according to allowed codes or error).

  • backoff – Factor by which to multiply delays between retries.

  • intervals – Explicit intervals in seconds between retries.

  • retry_after – If enabled, honor Retry-After response header of provided by a failing request attempt.

  • allowed_codes – HTTP status codes that are considered valid to stop retrying (default: any non-4xx/5xx code).

  • ssl_verify – Explicit parameter to disable SSL verification (overrides any settings, default: True).

  • settings – Additional settings from which to retrieve configuration details for requests.

  • only_server_errors – Only HTTP status codes in the 5xx values will be considered for retrying the request (default: True). This catches sporadic server timeout, connection error, etc., but 4xx errors are still considered valid results. This parameter is ignored if allowed codes are explicitly specified.

  • request_kwargs – All other keyword arguments are passed down to the request call.

weaver.utils.fetch_file(file_reference: str, file_outdir: str, settings: Optional[weaver.typedefs.AnySettingsContainer] = None, **request_kwargs: Any)str[source]

Fetches a file from local path, AWS-S3 bucket or remote URL, and dumps it’s content to the output directory.

The output directory is expected to exist prior to this function call. The file reference scheme (protocol) determines from where to fetch the content. Output file name and extension will be the same as the original. Requests will consider weaver.request_options when using http(s):// scheme.

  • file_reference – Local filesystem path (optionally prefixed with file://), s3:// bucket location or http(s):// remote URL file reference. Reference https://s3.[...] are also considered as s3://.

  • file_outdir – Output local directory path under which to place the fetched file.

  • settings – Additional request-related settings from the application configuration (notably request-options).

  • request_kwargs – Additional keywords to forward to request call (if needed).


Path of the local copy of the fetched file.

  • HTTPException – applicable HTTP-based exception if any occurred during the operation.

  • ValueError – when the reference scheme cannot be identified.

weaver.utils.get_sane_name(name: str, min_len: Optional[int] = 3, max_len: Optional[Union[int, None]] = None, assert_invalid: Optional[bool] = True, replace_character: str = '_')Union[str, None][source]

Cleans up the name to allow only specified characters and conditions.

Returns a cleaned-up version of the name, replacing invalid characters not matched with REGEX_SEARCH_INVALID_CHARACTERS by replace_character. Also, ensure that the resulting name respects specified length conditions.

  • name – Value to clean.

  • min_len – Minimal length of name` to be respected, raises or returns None on fail according to assert_invalid.

  • max_len – Maximum length of name to be respected, raises or returns trimmed name on fail according to assert_invalid. If None, condition is ignored for assertion or full name is returned respectively.

  • assert_invalid – If True, fail conditions or invalid characters will raise an error instead of replacing.

  • replace_character – Single character to use for replacement of invalid ones if assert_invalid is False.

weaver.utils.assert_sane_name(name, min_len=3, max_len=None)[source]

Asserts that the sane name respects conditions.

weaver.utils.clean_json_text_body(body: str, remove_newlines: bool = True, remove_indents: bool = True)str[source]

Cleans a textual body field of superfluous characters to provide a better human-readable text in a JSON response.

weaver.utils.transform_json(json_data: Ellipsis, rename: Optional[Dict[weaver.typedefs.AnyKey, Any]] = None, remove: Optional[List[weaver.typedefs.AnyKey]] = None, add: Optional[Dict[weaver.typedefs.AnyKey, Any]] = None, replace_values: Optional[Dict[weaver.typedefs.AnyKey, Any]] = None, replace_func: Optional[Dict[weaver.typedefs.AnyKey, Callable[[Any], Any]]] = None)Dict[str, weaver.typedefs.JSON][source]

Transforms the input JSON with different methods.

The transformations are applied in-place and in the same order as the arguments (rename, remove, add, etc.). All operations are applied onto the top-level fields of the mapping. No nested operations are applied, unless handled by replace functions.


Because fields and values are iterated over the provided mappings, replacements of previous iterations could be re-replaced by following ones if the renamed item corresponds to a following item to match. For example, renaming field1 -> field2 and field2 -> field3` within the same operation type would result in successive replacements with ``field3 as result. The parameter order is important in this case as swapping the definitions would not find field2 on the first iteration (not in mapping yet), and then find field1, making the result to be field2.

  • json_data – JSON mapping structure to transform.

  • rename – rename matched fields key name to the associated value name.

  • remove – remove matched fields by name.

  • add – add or override the fields names with associated values.

  • replace_values – replace matched values by the associated new values regardless of field names.

  • replace_func – Replace values under matched fields by name with the returned value from the associated function. Mapping functions will receive the original value as input. If the result is to be serialized to JSON, they should return a valid JSON-serializable value.

:return transformed JSON (same as modified in-place input JSON)
