Get and pass CSRF token using python requests library

 

import sys
import requests
URL = 'https://portal.bitcasa.com/login'
client = requests.session()

# Retrieve the CSRF token first
client.get(URL)  # sets cookie
if 'csrftoken' in client.cookies:
    # Django 1.6 and up
    csrftoken = client.cookies['csrftoken']
else:
    # older versions
    csrftoken = client.cookies['csrf']

# Pass CSRF token both in login parameters (csrfmiddlewaretoken)
# and in the session cookies (csrf in client.cookies)
login_data = dict(username=EMAIL, password=PASSWORD, csrfmiddlewaretoken=csrftoken, next='/')
r = client.post(URL, data=login_data, headers=dict(Referer=URL))
