Download a Google Group to MBOX
A small script as a replacement of the old PHP script for downloading messages stored in the black hole of the Google Groups.
How to use it?
This script requires formail(1) from procmail package. Any version is OK, so please install it from your distribution’s repositories. Then run:
pip install beautifulsoup4 PyYAML python gg_scraper.py 'https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/<group_name>'
I would never start without an inspiration from the comment on my previous post on the theme of locked down nature of Google Groups.
Of course pull requests are more than welcome in the same places as well. Currently all development is done with Python 3.3, but tests are run on Travis-CI for 2.6, 2.7, pypy, and 3.2 as well.
