Security Studies open-access Web Data
Some of the data I am using when working on research projects and the dissertation is updated frequently. Rather than having to download files to keep up, I wanted to have access to the current data through a python library. I will be expanding this package to include more data as time permits. For a full more thorough discussion and some usage of the package check out this blog post "Security Studies Web Data".
Clone into a directory
Navigate to sswebdata/
python setup.py install
