Python 420chan API Wrapper. Based on the BASC-py4chan 4chan API Wrapper.
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.
You can install this library straight from PyPi with:
pip install py420chan
If you want help, or you have some trouble using this library, our primary IRC channel is #bibanon on irc.rizon.net. Simply head in there and talk to dan or antonizoon. Otherwise, you can put a issue on our Github Issue Tracker and we’ll respond as soon as we can!
import py420chan nom = py420chan.Board('nom') thread = nom.get_thread(423491034) print(thread) for file in thread.file_objects(): print(file.file_url) # In a while... print("I fetched", thread.update(), "new replies.")
This library mostly extends the classes of BASC-py4chan, but has some differences. See the py8chan documentation for more info.
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.
- images - No total of all images in the thread.
