A minimal browser based on pycurl/lxml

Project description


A minimal browser based on pycurl/lxml.

Mechanize seemed a bit slow for my usage, so I wrote this alternative using
pycurl (i.e. libcurl) and lxml, mostly focused on speed, whilst not
compromising on the features I see as useful (cookies and form selection/

form support for radio, checkbox types
decorator to catch errors and rethrow with attached browser data for
easier scraper debugging


A simple REST client based upon pycurlbrowser.

CRUD approach providing:


A REST client that only speaks JSON.

Building upon RestClient to convert to/from JSON for a more streamlined
experience taking in and returning Python primitives, using JSON as a
transport protocol.
