A library that enables programmatic interaction with Daft.ie. Daft.ie has nationwide coverage and contains about 80% of the total available properties in Ireland.

Installation

Daftlistings is available on the Python Package Index (PyPI). You can install daftlistings using pip.

daft = Daft()
listings = daft.search()

for listing in listings:
    print(listing.title)

By default, the Daft search function iterates over each page of results and appends each Listing object to the array that is returned. If you wish to limit the number of results that are returned you can use the max_pages argument.
