Use Periscope with Python.
PyPeri makes getting data out of Periscope easy, with a sane and understandable API.
Free software: MIT license
Easy to understand API
Fully tested & documented
Functionality so far:
Get information about Users
Get information about Broadcasts
Get a User’s Broadcast history
Periscope is pretty neat, but it’s difficult to get information out of it in a programatic way. Getting answers to simple questions like: “How many broadcasts did our client do this week” is not trivial, and in-depth analysis is pretty tough. This project is an attempt to make the lives of people who dip into Digital Marketing a little better.
PyPeri attempts to do this by providing a sane interface, and hides some of the tedium of using Periscope’s API. For example, Periscope makes doing simple things, like getting a list of a User’s past Broadcasts a 2-step process:
Request a short-lived API session key from the Periscope Web Interface
Use the session key on the Periscope API Interface using the getUserBroadcastsPublic endpoint.
PyPeri simplifies this considerably:
>>> from pyperi import Peri >>> pp = Peri() >>> history = pp.get_user_broadcast_history(username='george_clinton')
Install via pip:
$ pip install pyperi
>>> from pyperi import Peri >>> pp = Peri() >>> history = pp.get_user_broadcast_history(username='george_clinton') >>> print(history['status']) #George Clinton listening to music in houston
