comment Py-StackExchange: An API wrapper for Python
Sorry for the delay - OpenID/hosting problems... Anyway, doing some testing, I noticed that Django view parameters are Unicode strings. I hadn't thought to have handled Unicode explicitly in the library, and it turned out that the urllib module encodes it as UTF-16 by default, which the API (understandably) doesn't like. I've changed it to UTF-8, which now works under Django for me. Summary: update to the latest version in the Git repo. (Or, I can push a new release of the egg out if necessary.)

Not as far as I know, unless you use client-side JavaScript or something like that to fetch the result. You'll probably be fine with a single key, with an increased quota if necessary. The SO team are very approachable ;).

You could well hit the limit if you get lots of hits. See stackapps.com/questions/67/how-api-keys-work for the official line. If your quota is increased, you won't need to change any code except to make sure you're using your API key.

Updated version on Github, and the egg should work now.

Aha. I should probably rename build.sh to release.sh - it's the script I use for publishing new releases to PyPI. I'll write a README or something too... anyway, it should just work, from Github, out-of-the-box without running the script. If it doesn't, let me know! :)

You might find, now that version 1.1 of the API has been released, that the /similar method might suit your needs (api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/usage/methods/similar). You can access this in Py-StackExchange with the site.similar() method; just remember to update the library to a recent version.
