You supply the URL, pyfav2 will supply the favicon

Project description


pyfav2 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. pyfav2 removes the annoyance by
handling the details for you – you supply a URL and pyfav2 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


from pyfav2 import download_favicon

favicon_saved_at = download_favicon('')

You should now see the favicon in your /tmp directory. If you want to
control where the favicon gets written to disk,


from pyfav2 import download_favicon

mkdir /tmp/favicon-downloads

favicon_saved_at = download_favicon('', \

Get the location

If you’d prefer to handle the writing piece, use the get\_favicon\_url


from pyfav2 import get_favicon_url

favicon_url = get_favicon_url('')


The easiest to get pyfav2 is through PIP


pip install pyfav2


pyfav2 is open source and freely avaiable under the `MIT License`_
