Using Guardian OpenPlatform API
13 October 2009 CommentsGuardian Open Platform is a new API from The Guardian for accessing it's publications, news and articles. API is just HTTP REST, so it's very easy to use. Currently in beta - so when you register your app you will have to wait few days to be activated. Using the API you can search and get articles publishen by Guardian and few other newspapers. There is interesting example of Google Wave robot that inserts search results (with Guardian publications) in a Wave.
OpenPlatform and PythonThere is complete library openplatform-python, which covers all the API:
Which will return articles matching query term - "Roberta Kubicy":
from guardianapi import Client client = Client('Your API Key') results = client.search(q = 'robert kubica') print results.count() for item in results: print item['headline'] # content #print item['typeSpecific']['body'] print
More examples can be found on the library website.
