Maybe you’re a python programmer. Maybe you think del.icio.us is kinda cool. Maybe you’d like to be able to do this:
>>> print len(delicious.Href("https://www.vim.org/").posts()) 8
>>> for post in delicious.users.mattb(delicious.tags.hackney): ... print post.description,post.href Phil Gyford selling his flat https://www.gyford.com/strandbuilding/ POGO https://www.pogocafe.co.uk/ hackneycentral https://www.hackneycentral.org/ Armadillo https://www.armadillorestaurant.co.uk/
or perhaps do something much, much cooler. delicious.py is for you.
UPDATE: Since I published this code, Joshua Schachter has made the rules around use of del.icio.us APIs clearer. So that you can stay within these limits, you should be aware that no call to a method in delicious.py will cause more than one HTTP request to del.icio.us. This means that it’s left up to you to time your requests appropriately and politely, but at least you know that the code won’t spam del.icio.us of its own accord.
