login to a Wordpress based website using python's request module and beautifulsoup4.

Recommended Posts

dear community,

I'm trying to login to a Wordpress based website using python's request module and beautifulsoup4.
It seems like the code fails to sucessfully login. Also, there is no csrf token on the website. How do I sucessfully login to the website?
 

import requests
import bs4 as bs
with requests.session() as c:
    link="https://gpldl.com/sign-in/" #link of the webpage to be logged in
    initial=c.get(link) #passing the get request
    login_data={"log":"*****","pwd":"******"} #the login data from any account on the site. Stars must be replaced with username and password
    page_login=c.post(link, data=login_data) #posting the login data into the link
    print(page_login) #checking status of requested page
    page=c.get("https://gpldl.com/my-gpldl-account/") #requesting source code of logged in page
    good_data = bs.BeautifulSoup(page.content, "lxml") #parsing it with BS4
    print(good_data.title) #printing this gives the title that is got from the page when accessed from an logged-out account

 
 
i got back:

martin@linux-3645:~/dev/python> python w1.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "w1.py", line 1, in <module>
    import requests
ImportError: No module named requests


well: Requests is not a built in module (does not come with the default python installation), so we will have to install it:

OSX/Linux

i used this command: 

Use $ sudo pip install requests 

since i have pip installed

Alternatively we can also use

sudo easy_install -U requests

if we have easy_install installed.

 

martin@linux-3645:~/dev/python> sudo pip install requests
Requirement already satisfied: requests in /usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages
martin@linux-3645:~/dev/python>

so what can i do now?

You tried running the code and it didn't work because the requests module wasn't present. You installed the module. So what happens if you try running the code now?

hello

 

well it seems that i run into some kind of confusion.

 

note: i am on opensuse 42.3 -

 

i have python 2 on board -

 

see:  this information is available in the sys.version string in the sys module:

>>> import sys
 

martin@linux-3645:~/dev/python> python sys.py
2.7.13 (default, Jan 03 2017, 17:41:54) [GCC]

well - this is confusing - since i have modules imported that are attached to Version 3... (see above)


  File "w1.py", line 1, in <module>
    import requests
ImportError: No module named requests

hmm - i have to muse - what i can do now....:

 

 

 

 

perhaps force the system to use version 3....  - this can be done so.

 

python2 in terminal or python3 in terminal

 

 

otherwise / furthermore i could tell in sheebang to use pyton 3 ...

 

what do you suggest!?
