import pyso # Install the Server Fault API version 1.0. pyso.install_site(pyso.APISite("api.serverfault.com", "1.0")) # Get all the names of the moderators. print list((m["display_name"] for m in pyso.get_all_moderators())) # Get question titles by user ID. print list(q["title"] for q in pyso.get_users_questions(59180))
This is a simple Python module providing functions for querying Stack Overflow. I created it mostly because I was interested and because I wanted something small (it's not even 400 lines). It's simple; it works with Stack Overflow out of the box. Just
import pyso and start calling the functions. All results are Python dicts and/or lists, a straight deserialization provided by a json module. A generator is returned by functions that return multiple items.
All the functions are backed by a simple APISite class that does all the data fetching. To access another Stack Exchange site call
install_site() with a new
APISite instance created with the site API URL, e.g. "api.serverfault.com". Also, in cases where there isn't a pyso level function available this class can be used to make your a request. As well, there isn't a whole of error handling or documentation, so read the source.
GPL version 2 for now.
