8chan/vichan Python Library
The Bibliotheca Anonoma's complete Python Wrapper for the 8chan API. Uses requests, respects if-modified-since headers on updating threads. Caches thread objects. Fun stuff.
An absolute must if you want to interface with or scrape from 8chan or other vichan-based imageboards/textboards, using a Python script._
You can install this library straight from PyPi with:
pip install py8chan
If you want help, or you have some trouble using this library, our primary IRC channel is #bibanon on irc.rizon.net. Simply head in there and talk to dan or antonizoon. Otherwise, you can put a issue on our Github Issue Tracker and we'll respond as soon as we can!
import py8chan b = py8chan.Board('b') thread = b.get_thread(423491034) print(thread) # supports displaying extra files in one post as well! for file in thread.file_objects(): print(file.file_url) # In a while... print("I fetched", thread.update(), "new replies.")
This library mostly extends the classes of BASC-py4chan, but has some slight but major differences. See the py8chan documentation for more info.
