MyAnimeList web scraper

Project Description

MyAnimeList web scraper is a Python library for gathering data for analysis.

Installation & Usage

Installation is simple:

pip install mal-scraper

Please use the documentation for the reference and usage examples.

For your convenience follow Semantic Versioning.


Please see the Contributing documentation page for full details, and especially look at the tips section.

After cloning, and creating a virtualenv, install the development dependencies:

pip install -e .[develop]

To run the all tests, skipping the python interpreters you don’t have:

tox --skip-missing-interpreters

Project Notes:

  • Tests will always mock requests to the internet. You can set the environment variable LIVE_RESPONSES=1 to properly test web scraping.
  • You can look at coverage results inside htmlcov/index.html.

Note, to combine the coverage data from all the tox environments run:

set PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append
PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append tox
