Python 8chan/vichan API Wrapper. Based on BASC-py4chan by the Bbiliotheca Anonoma

Project Description

The Bibliotheca Anonoma’s complete Python Wrapper for the 8chan 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 8chan or other vichan-based imageboards/textboards, using a Python script._

Github Repository

You can install this library straight from PyPi with:

pip install py8chan

# supports displaying extra files in one post as well!

    print(file.file_url)

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

Documentation

This library extends the classes of BASC-py4chan. For the most part, it inherits all functions and remains compatible. See the BASC-py4chan documentation for more info.

BASC-py4chan Documentation

Notice that some functions are not implemented in the 8chan API. These functions will raise an AttributeError when used.
