A wrapper/crawler meant to fetch information from the Campus Life Integration Platform (clip.fct.unl.pt)
In case you have no clue of what CLIP is then this package is not for you.
This is a crawler which downloads relevant information from CLIP, as such it requires student credentials. It does provide an interface to lookup the crawled data.
Even if you’re a student and have the all mighty credentials, it still isn’t probably something you’ll want to try.
If you’re brave and want to try it, or want that information for something else (please don’t be evil), it takes several days to fully bootstrap the database, and it’s a somewhat error-prone process with a lot of disconnections along the way.
Avoid doing so during times that might disturb other students access to CLIP. This thing does several requests every second. 1AM-6AM(GMT) it’s probably your best shot.
Stuff that this is able to retrieve
Right now, most of CLIP data.
- Classes (most of their information, student grades, turns, teachers)
- Files (with deduplication :) )
- Physical entities (buildings, classrooms, auditoriums, laboratories, …)
- National access contest admissions
