xkcd 2.3.1

Library to access

Package Documentation

By Ben Rosser Released under MIT License (see LICENSE.txt)

This is a Python library for accessing and retrieving links to comics from the xkcd webcomic by Randall Munroe. It is NOT endorsed or made by him, it’s an entirely independent project.

It makes use of the JSON interface to Randall’s site to retrieve comic data. One can create comic objects manually using Comic(number), or can use the helper functions provided- getLatestComic(), getRandomComic(), and getComic()- to do this. Once you have a Comic object, you can access data from it using various provided methods.

Documentation is available [here](

Note that PyPI currently doesn’t support Markdown formatting for long_description, hence the ugly rendering here.
