A wrapper for the Goodreads Quote API

Project description


gazpacho Travis PyPI Downloads


quote is a python wrapper for the Goodreads Quote API, powered by gazpacho.


quote is simple to use:

from quote import quote

search = 'Jasper Fforde'
result = quote(search, limit=2)

# [{'author': 'Jasper Fforde',
#   'book': 'Something Rotten',
#   'quote': 'If the real world were a book, it would never find a publisher. Overlong, detailed to the point of distraction-and ultimately, without a major resolution.'},
#  {'author': 'Jasper Fforde',
#   'book': 'The Well of Lost Plots',
#   'quote': "After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colors of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summer's breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer - perhaps more."}]

quote can also be used as a command line tool:

>>> max@mbp % quote 'alain de botton'
People only get really interesting when they start to rattle the bars of their cages.

>>> max@mbp % quote --search='alain de botton'
Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone - and finding that that's ok with them.


pip install -U quote
