I would like to download a zip file from internet and extract it.
I would rather use requests. I don't want to write to the disk.
I knew how to do that in Python2 but I am clueless for python3.3. Apparently, zipfile.Zipfile wants a file-like object but I don't know how to get that from what requests returns.
If you know how to do it with urllib.request, I would be curious to see how you do it too.
I found out how to do it:
request = requests.get(url) file = zipfile.ZipFile(BytesIO(request.content))
What I was missing :
request.contentshould be used to access the bytes
io.BytesIOis the correct file-like object for
