A Python wrapper for the Giantbomb API.

Project description


A modern Python wrapper for the Giantbomb API. Forked from xupisco's initial API wrapper and since (poorly) rewritten for Python 3.7.

Please use it to make cool stuff, and feel free to slide into the issue tracker if you have suggestions for improvements. Pull requests welcome!
