Byte API Wrapper for Python

Project description

pybyte-logo


A Python wrapper for the byte.co app.

Python 3.6+ Required.


Attention: This project was built in a weekend (mostly in the weekend that it was launched) as such this is not production level software.

Byte does not have an official web API for developers, and most likely this will violate the ToS. Endpoints were found from the mobile app. As such, this wrapper can break at anytime. Do not rely on this wrapper.


Installation

  • PyPi (Recommended)
    pip install pybyte
    
  • Git repo
    git clone https://github.com/ms7m/py-byte
    cd py-byte
    python3 setup.py install
    

Usage

>>> 
>>> byte = pybyte.Byte("7WMRREHUQRH4DBK7DQCV7YWL44")
>>> 
>>> byte.me().username
'BotBottyFace220'
>>> 
>>> my_timeline = byte.me().timeline()
>>> 
>>> # no rate limit protection yet. do it at your own risk!
... 
>>> import time
>>> 
>>> for post in my_timeline.feed:
...     print(f"Caption: {post.caption}")

Example Script

# Go through the global feed, comment and follow the author if they have < 10 followers

global_feed = byte.me().global_feed()

for post in global_feed.feed:
    if post.author.followers['followerCount'] > 10:
      	post.comment("Hey man, thanks for making me laugh!")
        post.like()
    else:
      	continue

Example Scripts

# Go through your posts and comment any post older than 3 days and has less than 200 likes

my_posts = byte.me().posts()
time_now = datetime.datetime.now()

for post in my_posts.feed:
    if (time_now - post.date).days > 3:
        if post.like_count < 200:
            # i am not popular :(
            post.comment("this post isn't making me popular")
         else:
            post.comment("Woohoo! I'm very popular!")
    else:
        # not old enough
        continue
