You supply the URL, pyfav will supply the favicon
pyfav is a simple Python library that helps you get a favicon for a supplied URL.
Favicons can be annoying to track down because they’re commonly located in a handful of different places. pyfav removes the annoyance by handling the details for you – you supply a URL and pyfav will give you the favicon.
Exchange a URL for a favicon on disk
The simplest way to get started is to use the download_favicon function,
from pyfav import download_favicon favicon_saved_at = download_favicon('https://www.python.org/')
You should now see the favicon in your /tmp directory. If you want to control where the favicon gets written to disk,
from pyfav import download_favicon mkdir /tmp/favicon-downloads favicon_saved_at = download_favicon('https://www.python.org/', \ file_prefix='python.org-', target_dir='/tmp/favicon-downloads')
Get the location
If you’d prefer to handle the writing piece, use the get_favicon_url function,
from pyfav import download_favicon favicon_url = get_favicon_url('https://www.python.org/')
The easiest to get pyfav is through PIP
pip install pyfav
pyfav is open source and freely avaiable under the MIT License
