Iterate through Craig's list

Project description

Read listings Pythonically.

Examples

Generate listings.

from craigsgenerator import Section
for listing in Section('austin','sub'):
    print(listing)

Additional arguments get passed to requests.get.

from craigsgenerator import Section
proxies = {'https':'example.com'}
for listing in Section('austin','sub', proxies = proxies):
    print(listing)

Downloaded files are cached by default and refreshed if they’re older than a day. Change the directory by specifying the cachedir.

from craigsgenerator import Section
for listing in Section('austin','sub', cachedir = 'downloads'):
    print(listing)

Disable caching by setting the cachedir to None.

from craigsgenerator import Section, fulltext
for listing in Section('austin','sub', cachedir = None):
    print(listing)

Get the full text of the listing with the fulltext function.

from craigsgenerator import Section
for listing in Section('austin','sub'):
    print(listing)
    print(fulltext(listing))
