Posting data using MultipartPostHandler in Python

+1 vote

I want to use http post to upload data to a webserver but I want to pass multiple arguments within the post i.e. I know that you can load one item (data)in there like this:

 data = {"data":open(filename,"rb")}
 response =, data, timeout=TIMEOUT)

but now I want multiple so I tried this:

 multipart = ({"data":data}, {"fname":fname}, {"f":f})
 response =, multipart, timeout=TIMEOUT)

but I get an error saying "'tuple' object has no attribute 'items'"... how do I do this correctly?

You're no longer providing a dictionary, but a tuple of dictionaries. What you want to do is use a single dictionary:

multipart = {"data":data, "fname":fname, "f":f}

That should achieve what you want.

I have a Ubuntu server running NGINX that logs data for me. I want to write a python script that reads my customized logs and after a little rearrangement save the new data into my DB (postgresql).

The process should run about every 5 minutes and i'm expecting large chunks of data on several 5 minute windows..

My plan for achieving this is to install python on the server, write a script and add it to cron.

My question is what the simplest way to do this? should I use any python frameworks?
For my python app I'm using Django, but on this server I just need to read a file, do some manipulation and save to DB.
