Project description
> Let us all turn out in the general offensive to hasten final victory in the revolutionary spirit of Paektu!

This Python module gives you programmatic access to the wisdom of the Supreme Leader, and to the revolutionary Juche ideology of the DPRK!

Quick start
from rodong import RodongSinmun

# Create a scraper
scraper = RodongSinmun()

# List the available sections
print scraper.keys()

# Get the first article in the "Supreme Leader's Activities" section

# subsequent accesses to the 'supreme_leader' list are cached
article = scraper['supreme_leader'][0]

# Print its title, content, and images
print article.title
print '=' * len(article.title)
print article.text
