Amazon wishlist scraper
Python library to grab your Amazon wishlist so you can mess with it programmatically.
What do I need if I have a private wishlist?
Wishlist depends on Brow in order to login from the command line (including 2 factor if enabled), and Brow depends on Selenium and Firefox to be installed, so you’ll need to read Brow’s README if you need help installing those on Linux.
What do I need if I have a public wishlist?
Nothing special, pip install wishlist should cover you, jump down to “Commandline wishlist access” and get started.

Authentication for private lists
Is your wishlist private? Then you will need to authenticate on the command line:
$ wishlist auth
This will prompt you to signin and will even handle 2-factor authentication, after you signin your cookies will be saved so you can run now access your Amazon wishlist.
Commandline wishlist access
You can check access to your wishlist on the command line by running:
$ wishlist dump NAME
where NAME is the part of a url like https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/NAME, so, if your wishlist was found at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/9YDNFG31NSSRL then you would run:
$ wishlist dump 9YDNFG31NSSRL
Programmatic wishlist access
If you wanted to do something in another python script, you can do:
from wishlist.core import Wishlist name = "9YDNFG31NSSRL" w = Wishlist(name) for item in w: print(w.jsonable())
You can check the wishlist.core.WishlistElement code to understand the structure of each wishlist item.
$ pip install wishlist
Or be bleeding edge:
$ pip install "git+https://github.com/Jaymon/wishlist#egg=wishlist"
To change Amazon region from the default (amazon.com) to another (e.g. amazon.co.uk) just set the environment variable WISHLIST_HOST, for example:
- Why are you using Firefox for logging in? Why not Chrome? I tried to get it to work in Chrome but headless Chrome doesn’t have all the features needed to work out authentication on the command line.
- Would you rather use php? There’s a library for that (also related).
- Amazon’s advertising api, this is where the officially supported wishlist api used to live.
