A live danmu package

Project Description

Chinese Version

danmu is Chinese translation of chat message.

It is an open source chat message api for live platforms like douyu, panda, huya, zhanqi.

Using this, even without programming basis, you will have an easy access to chat messages.

With less than 30 lines of code, you may develop further with chat messages.

It supports multi versions of python and platforms, making it available for all developers and amateurs.

Once started, it will auto connect when anchor showed up and re-connect when anchor connect again.

With good optimization and abstract structure, almost all chat messages will be catched and the whole program is easy to be modified.
