Python 420chan API Wrapper. Based on the BASC-py4chan 4chan API Wrapper.

Project Description

The Bibliotheca Anonoma’s complete Python Wrapper for the 420chan API. Uses requests, respects if-modified-since headers on updating threads. Caches thread objects. Fun stuff.

An absolute must if you want to interface with or scrape from 4chan, using a Python script.

Hosted Documentation

Github Repository

You can install this library straight from PyPi with:

thread = nom.get_thread(423491034)

    print(file.file_url)

# In a while...
print("I fetched", thread.update(), "new replies.")

Documentation

This library mostly extends the classes of BASC-py4chan, but has some differences. See the py8chan documentation for more info.

py420chan Documentation

Notice that some functions are not implemented in the 420chan API. These functions will raise an AttributeError when used.

  • omitted_posts - The lack of this feature forces us to ditch expand() and use update() instead.
  • omitted_images - Because the omitted attributes are missing, the repr no longer reports them.
  • filedeleted - The image will just 404 if it was deleted.
  • spoiler
  • images - No total of all images in the thread.
  • bumplimit
