Website crawler utility

Project description

Leechi is a robust and sneaky wrapper for urllib2.

It is sneaky because it introduces random delays between requests and because it changes its User Agent string.

It is robust because it will automatically retry failed requests.

Additionally, it will handle cookies to make session handling easier or even automatic.

See website for usage information.

Leechi development was sponsored by the Forschungsdaten Service Center of Universität Mannheim, Germany <http://service.informatik.uni-mannheim.de/>.
