Soundcloud Data Scraper

This is a small python script used for scraping user data from Soundcloud, using Soundcloud API. The script currently creates two files: edge_list.txt, which contains a list of edges from which you can easily create a graph, and user_data.txt, which contains the data for every user scraped (of course you can select which data you want to keep)

Installation

Important: you need a soundcloud client Id for this script to work. see more at http://developers.soundcloud.com/

If you have the client id, just download scraper.py, and run in your console:

python scraper.py yourClientId firstUserIdToFetch

And you're all set. the script will do the rest.

Hope this will help someone!
