Library to access and retrieve quotes from

Project Description

This is a Python library for accessing and printing quotes from, a quote database on the Internet from various chat sources. It is NOT made by, or endorsed by them in any way. Note that it merely uses HTML parsing to filter through the site’s content

The BashQuote object can be created directly (BashQuote(8)) or it can be created using various functions. getQuoteSafe and getQuote take a quote number and return a quote object- getQuoteSafe checks to verify the quote exists. Then, getLatestQuote and getRandomQuote will both do HTML parsing to find the quote numbers.

These BashQuote objects then have various helper functions which can return various data about a quote. So, for instance, to get the text of a random quote, BashQuote.getText() will print out all the text. Or to check if a quote is pending, isPending() will return true if the quote has yet to be processed for approval, and so on.
