Basic Twisted HTTP/2 client.

Simple Twisted H2 Client

This gist contains a really stupid implementation of a Twisted HTTP/2 client. It opens a connection, uses ALPN/NPN to negotiate HTTP/2, and then sends a single HTTP/2 GET request to the /ip endpoint.

  2. Install the requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt.
  3. Install the development version of Twisted that contains the nextProtocols code.
  4. Execute the code using python
