The Cookie module

(New in 2.0). This module provides basic cookie support for HTTP clients and servers.

Example: Using the cookie module
# File: cookie-example-1.py

import Cookie
import os, time

cookie = Cookie.SimpleCookie()
cookie["user"] = "Mimi"
cookie["timestamp"] = time.time()

print cookie

# simulate CGI roundtrip
os.environ["HTTP_COOKIE"] = str(cookie)

print

cookie = Cookie.SmartCookie()
cookie.load(os.environ["HTTP_COOKIE"])

for key, item in cookie.items():
    # dictionary items are "Morsel" instances
    # use value attribute to get actual value
    print key, repr(item.value)
Set-Cookie: timestamp=736513200;
Set-Cookie: user=Mimi;

user 'Mimi'
timestamp '736513200'
