comment Py-StackExchange: An API wrapper for Python
Right. I have an idea how I'd do this! :)

comment Py-StackExchange: An API wrapper for Python
That seems like a good idea on both counts! Will have a look at this.

@Edan: Not in your specific case right now (see the FAQ - link in question - for those that are covered), as I'm not sure how best to implement it. Do you think calling me.answers.fetch(body='true') would be best?

I've also updated the FAQ with this, as it's not documented very clearly.

Ah, sorry. Due to a change in the API (I think - or perhaps me just being stupid and not reading the docs close enough!) question and answer bodies need to be explicitly requested. You can do this through so.be_inclusive(), which you should call before your first request.

Thanks for that! I'll have a look at implementing that today.

That is very weird. I have added it to my quick-and-dirty to-do list wiki.github.com/lucjon/Py-StackExchange.

comment Stack2Blog - Turning your answers into blogs (For “sale”)
I personally would rather the comments weren't there - from the usage scenario you put forward in the question (person blogging own answer/question), they would add little. (IMHO, of course.)

I've added the patch manually (it's only small :D), but I can't figure out how to do it with Git - git apply didn't work. Just for future reference, do you know how I'd do that?

Thanks - I'll add the diff for now, to keep compatibility. I may factor it into the be_inclusive() method later, though.

Yes, sorry - this is by-design to limit the number of API calls the app makes. That looks like an awesome app, though!

About gzip compression, I'll have a look. I assume it's not built-in to urllib2, but I'll take a look.

Sorry to all to whom I haven't responded recently - I've been quite busy.

comment List of API client libraries grouped by programming language
Well, if someone wrote a C library (I imagine the C++ one would be a pain to work with) you could call it from assembly. :) (Realistically, some call-out would be required anyway, so it's not cheating that much.)

comment I need Testers, anyone want to be the First?
It looks like a neat app - I'd like to test it. How I would do so, however, is unclear.
