__license__ = 'Apache 2.0' __copyright__ = 'Copyright 2017 Kenneth Reitz' __cake__ = u'/u2728 /U0001f370 /u2728'
Searching through the code, I found that
__cake__ is referenced in
requests/__init__.py when importing copyright and version info.
from .__version__ import __title__, __description__, __url__, __version__ from .__version__ import __build__, __author__, __author_email__, __license__ from .__version__ import __copyright__, __cake__
My best guess is that
__cake__ was added as an Easter Egg, but I'm not sure what the value
u'/u2728 /U0001f370 /u2728' represents. (Possibly a Unicode string?)
Why does Requests have a
__cake__ variable? What does
u'/u2728 /U0001f370 /u2728' mean?
