The simplest way to build Amazon Affiliate links, in Python.

## Install

To install ``python-amazonify``, simply run
``pip install amazonify`` and you'll get the latest version installed
automatically.


## Usage

Using ``amazonify`` is really easy. All you do is pass it the Amazon URL you'd
like to make into an affiliate link, and your Amazon affiliate tag.

``` python
>>> from amazonify import amazonify
>>>
>>> # Your Amazon affiliate tag:
>>> affiliate_tag = 'rdegges-20'
>>>
>>> # Some non-affiliate Amazon URLs:
>>> urls = [
... 'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-21-1MP-Frame-Digital-Camera/dp/B001G5ZTLS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337148615&sr=8-1',
... 'http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Compact-Flash-Card-400X/dp/B002WE4H8I/ref=pd_bxgy_p_img_b',
... 'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-LP-E6-Battery-Digital-Cameras/dp/B001KELVS0/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b',
... 'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-50mm-1-8-Camera-Lens/dp/B00007E7JU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337148688&sr=8-1',
... 'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-70-300mm-4-5-6-Lens-Cameras/dp/B0007Y794O/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1337148688&sr=8-3',
... ]
>>> affiliate_urls = [amazonify(u, tag) for u in urls]
>>> affiliate_urls
[
'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-21-1MP-Frame-Digital-Camera/dp/B001G5ZTLS/ref=sr_1_1?tag=rdegges-20',
'http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Compact-Flash-Card-400X/dp/B002WE4H8I/ref=pd_bxgy_p_img_b?tag=rdegges-20',
'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-LP-E6-Battery-Digital-Cameras/dp/B001KELVS0/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b?tag=rdegges-20',
'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-50mm-1-8-Camera-Lens/dp/B00007E7JU/ref=sr_1_1?tag=rdegges-20',
'http://www.amazon.com/Canon-70-300mm-4-5-6-Lens-Cameras/dp/B0007Y794O/ref=sr_1_3?tag=rdegges-20'
]
```

**NOTE**: If the URL you try to ``amazonify`` is invalid, ``amazonify`` will return ``None``.
