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._
