Project description

vodscrepe

Description

This PyPI package is best described as a tool for scraping the vods.co website. Currently, the package only supports Super Smash Bros. Melee vods.

Installation

With Python installed, simply run the following command to add the package to your project.

pip install vodscrepe

Usage

The following is an example usage of the package, which is also included in the repo as example.py:

from vodscrepe import Scraper
from tqdm import tqdm

s = Scraper('melee', debug=True)

pages = range(300)
try:
    for vod in s.scrape(pages, show_progress=True):
        if vod is not None:
            tqdm.write(str(vod))
except KeyboardInterrupt:
    tqdm.write("Scraping terminated.")

This example lists information about the vods from the most recent to page 300 in the following fashion:

python example.py > sets.txt

Then, the sets.txt file becomes populated with vod information...
