SCP Wiki entry retrieval script

Project description

A Python 2/3 script that opens a specific/random entry on the SCP Foundation wiki.

If you don’t know what that is, give it a shot.


Python 2.7 or Python 3.2+. Everything is inside the standard library.

To install, get it from pip:

> pip install scp-marvin

Alternatively, just clone the git repo/download the source and install with setuptools:

Once you’ve done that, access it through the marvin command.
