Unofficial API for reviews, maintained version of pitchfork

Project description

An unofficial python API for reviews.

Build Status Version Python Versions
Build Status Latest Version Py Versions

Apologies for the confusing naming - pypi doesn’t allow the use of underscores in package names, while python doesn’t allow dashes in module names. As a result, the package name is pitchfork-api, but it is pitchfork_api everywhere else.


You can get it from python package index:

pip install pitchfork-api

You can also clone the repository, but note that pitchfork depends on beautifulsoup4 for HTML parsing so you first have to install beautifulsoup4 yourself !!!

git clone


>> import pitchfork

>> p ='kanye west', 'my beautiful') # the title is autocompleted
>> p.album() # the full album title
u'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'

>> p.label()
u'Def Jam / Roc-A-Fella'

>> p.editorial()[:100] # get the first 100 characters of the review.
u"Kanye West's 35-minute super-video,\xa0Runaway, peaks with a parade. Fireworks flash while red hoods ma"

# the link to the album cover image
>> p.cover()

>> p.score()

# to check what methods are available, you can use 'methods()'
>> p.methods()


You can run the basic tests located in the tests directory with:

$ cd pitchfork
$ python3 -m unittest discover
