warc3-wet: Python3 library to work with WARC and WET files

Note: This is a fork of the original (now dead) warc repository.

WARC (Web ARChive) is a file format for storing web crawls.

http://bibnum.bnf.fr/WARC/

This warc library makes it very easy to work with WARC files.:

import warc
with warc.open("test.warc") as f:
    for record in f:
        print(record['WARC-Target-URI'], record['Content-Length'])

And WET files.:

import warc
with warc.open("test.warc.wet") as f:
    for record in f:
        print(record['WARC-Target-URI'], record['Content-Length'])

Documentation

The documentation of the warc library is available at http://warc.readthedocs.org/.

Apart from the install from pip, which will not work for this warc3 version, the interface as described there is unchanged.
