How to fix MissingSchema error in Python requests?
MissingSchema occurs when you don't provide the complete URL to
requests. This often means you skipped
https:// and/or provided a relative URL.
You can fix this error by making use of the
urljoin function from the
urllib.parse library to join URLs before making a remote request. The solution will look something like this:
from urllib.parse import urljoin import requests url = "https://scrapingbee.com" relative_url = "/path/to/resource" final_url = urljoin(url, relative_url) html = requests.get(final_url)
urljoin will merge two URLs only if the second argument is a relative path. For example, the following sample code will print
from urllib.parse import urljoin first_url = "https://google.com" second_url = "https://scrapingbee.com" final_url = urljoin(first_url, second_url) print(final_url)
