Description: 8chan/vichan Python Library
===========================
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._

`Hosted Documentation <http://py8chan.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html>`_

`Github Repository <https://github.com/bibanon/py8chan>`_

You can install this library `straight from
PyPi <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/py8chan>`_ with::

pip install py8chan

Documentation
-------------

This library mostly extends the classes of `BASC-py4chan <https://github.com/bibanon/BASC-py4chan>`_, but has some slight but major differences. See the py8chan documentation for more info.
