How do you download from a repo using urllib3 in python? All examples use requests package

Using urllib3 I can't figure out how to pass the id and app password. I can't use requests as this is an AWS Lambda function that does not support the requests package only urllib3. Does anyone know why I'm not able to download the repo?

Curl is easy

curl -u userid:appPassword --output;

I have this code but it returns a zero byte file

import urllib3

import shutil


url = ''

headers = urllib3.make_headers(basic_auth='userid:appPassword')

c = urllib3.PoolManager()

with c.request('GET',url, headers=headers,  preload_content=False) as resp, open('', 'wb') as out_file:

    shutil.copyfileobj(resp, out_file)

@JERRY MCLAUGHLIN Hi. Thanks for your question.
Maybe this answer is not related to urllib3, but you can add requests to lambda.
Please check this article.

Regards, Igor.

Thank you for your reply. requests is no longer a part of the AWS SDK and I want to maintain concurrency for AWS support purposes.
