A simple python wrapper to access iTunes Store API

Project Description

A simple python wrapper for accessing the iTunes Store API iTunes Store API


To install with pip, just run this in your terminal:

$ pip install pyitunes

Or clone the code from Github and:

$ python install


This module caches responses from the iTunes API to speed up repeated queries against the same resources. Note, however, that there’s no persistent caching that happens between Python processes. Ie, once a python process exits, the cache is cleared.
