A minimal browser based on pycurl/lxml

Project description

browser.Browser

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/
POSTing).

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

rest_client.RestClient

A simple REST client based upon pycurlbrowser.

CRUD approach providing:
create
read
update
destroy

rest_client.RestClientJson

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.
