How to Convert Python Scrapy Browser Headers to a Dictionary?

Estimated read time 2 min read

When using Scrapy’s built-in Browser class, you can access the browser headers through the browser.headers attribute. To convert these headers to a dictionary format, you can use the dict() function. Here’s an example:

from scrapy_browser import Browser

# Create a browser instance
browser = Browser()

# Make a request and get the headers
headers_dict = dict(browser.headers)


In this example, we import the Browser class from scrapy_browser module and create a new instance of the browser. Then, we make a request to a specific URL using browser.get().

To convert the browser headers to a dictionary, we use dict(browser.headers). The browser.headers is a scrapy.http.Headers object, and passing it as an argument to the dict() function creates a dictionary with the header fields as keys and their corresponding values as values.

Finally, we print the headers_dict, which will display the headers as a dictionary.

Make sure you have the Scrapy library and its browser extension (scrapy-browser) installed before running this code. You can install the browser extension using the command pip install scrapy-browser.

Note that the Browser class is part of the Scrapy-Browser extension and provides a web browser-like interface within Scrapy.
