Python library to work with ARC and WARC files

Project description

warc3-wet: Python3 library to work with WARC and WET files

Note: This is a fork of the original (now dead) warc repository.

WARC (Web ARChive) is a file format for storing web crawls.

This `warc` library makes it very easy to work with WARC files.::

import warc
with"test.warc") as f:
for record in f:
print(record['WARC-Target-URI'], record['Content-Length'])

And WET files.::

import warc
with"test.warc.wet") as f:
for record in f:
print(record['WARC-Target-URI'], record['Content-Length'])


The documentation of the warc library is available at

Apart from the install from pip, which will not work for this warc3 version, the
interface as described there is unchanged.
