Jokes for python

Jokes for python.

I was really sad, no package called joke. So I decided to create one, really fast. This package have some functions, that return some jokes, quotes or facts. If you are sad, use the joke packages. :)


pip install axju-jokes

Command line

You can exit the function from the command line. There are two entry points:

$ joke
$ python -m joke

With no arguments, it will return a random joke, quote or fact. You can set one specifically API. For example some cat facts:

$ joke cat

Use help to see the possible API’s:

$ joke --help


Some jokes examples

from joke.jokes import *
# This will import all joke-functions (geek, icanhazdad, chucknorris, icndb)
# Now you can use them to get some jokes.

# For example you can display 10 Chuck Norris jokes.
for i in range(10):

# Or get a random joke-function.
from random import choice
print(choice([geek, icanhazdad, chucknorris, icndb])())

Some quotes examples

from joke.quotes import *

# get a quote from

# you can get more then one with one request
for quote in quotesondesign(5):

# and you can get the data
data = quotesondesign(format='data')

# get quote from

# You can set the ID to get a specific quote

# the stormconsultancy-function give you also the data
data =stormconsultancy(id=2, format='data')

Check also the example folder.

Import Easter Egg

>>> import joke.eggs
Chuck Norris has to register every part of his body as a separate lethal weapon.
His spleen is considered a concealed weapon in over 50 states.


To get the jokes, I use some open API’s. If you know some missing API’s, please contact me. Until now, the following API’s are used.
