This example assumes your STATICA_URL environment variable is set and contains your unique connection string. 

urllib2 is a basic library used for HTTP communication in Python and uses environment variables to set a proxy service.


In your application initialization you should set the http_proxy variable to match the STATICA_URL.


# Assign Statica to your environment's http_proxy variable

 

os.environ['http_proxy'] = os.environ['STATICA_URL']

 


To test in the Python interpreter

 

import urllib2, os
os.environ['http_proxy'] = os.environ['STATICA_URL']
url = 'http://ip.jsontest.com/'
proxy = urllib2.ProxyHandler()
opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy)
in_ = opener.open(url)
res = in_.read()
print res
