Client library for solve captchas with Anticaptcha.com support. The library supports both Python 2.7 and Python 3.

The library is cyclically and automatically tested for proper operation. We are constantly making the best efforts for its effective operation.

In case of any problems with integration - read the documentation, create an issue, use Gitter or contact privately.

Getting Started

Install as standard Python package using:

pip install python-anticaptcha

Usage

To use this library do you need Anticaptcha.com API key.

Solve recaptcha

Example snippet for Recaptcha:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticaptchaClient, NoCaptchaTaskProxylessTask

api_key = '174faff8fbc769e94a5862391ecfd010'
site_key = '6Le-wvkSAAAAAPBMRTvw0Q4Muexq9bi0DJwx_mJ-'  # grab from site
url = 'https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo'

client = AnticaptchaClient(api_key)
task = NoCaptchaTaskProxylessTask(url, site_key)
job = client.createTask(task)
job.join()
print job.get_solution_response()

The full integration example is available in file examples/recaptcha.py.

If you only process few page many times to increase reliability, you can specify whether the captcha is visible or not. This parameter is not required, as is the system detects invisible sitekeys automatically, and needs several recursive measures for automated training and analysis. For provide that pass is_invisible parameter to NoCaptchaTaskProxylessTask or NoCaptchaTask eg.:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticaptchaClient, NoCaptchaTaskProxylessTask

api_key = '174faff8fbc769e94a5862391ecfd010'
site_key = '6Lc-0DYUAAAAAOPM3RGobCfKjIE5STmzvZfHbbNx'  # grab from site
url = 'https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/kid/d/housekeeper-sitting-pet-care/6720136191.html'

client = AnticaptchaClient(api_key)
task = NoCaptchaTaskProxylessTask(url, site_key, is_invisible=True)
job = client.createTask(task)
job.join()
print job.get_solution_response()

Solve text captcha

Example snippet for text captcha:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticaptchaClient, ImageToTextTask

api_key = '174faff8fbc769e94a5862391ecfd010'
captcha_fp = open('examples/captcha_ms.jpeg', 'rb')
client = AnticaptchaClient(api_key)
task = ImageToTextTask(captcha_fp)
job = client.createTask(task)
job.join()
print job.get_captcha_text()

Solve funcaptcha

Example snippet for funcaptcha:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticaptchaClient, FunCaptchaTask, Proxy
UA = 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1) AppleWebKit/537.36 ' \
     '(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.95 Safari/537.36'

api_key = '174faff8fbc769e94a5862391ecfd010'
site_key = 'DE0B0BB7-1EE4-4D70-1853-31B835D4506B'  # grab from site
url = 'https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo'
proxy = Proxy.parse_url("socks5://login:password@123.123.123.123")

client = AnticaptchaClient(api_key)
task = FunCaptchaTask(url, site_key, proxy=proxy, user_agent=user_agent)
job = client.createTask(task)
job.join()
print job.get_token_response()

Report incorrect image

Example snippet for reporting an incorrect image task:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticaptchaClient, ImageToTextTask

api_key = '174faff8fbc769e94a5862391ecfd010'
captcha_fp = open('examples/captcha_ms.jpeg', 'rb')
client = AnticaptchaClient(api_key)
task = ImageToTextTask(captcha_fp)
job = client.createTask(task)
job.join()
print job.get_captcha_text()
job.report_incorrect()

Custom tasks

There is support for your own (captcha) forms. It allows you to analyze any data in various ways, eg. classify offensive image, count elements on the image, etc. The scope of the data, the form to describe them, you specify yourself.

For details, go to 'Custom fields' section in the documentation.

Setup proxy

The library is not responsible for managing the proxy server. However, we point to the possibility of simply launching such a server by:

pip install mitmproxy
mitmweb -p 9190 -b 0.0.0.0 --ignore '.' --socks

Next to in your application use something like:

proxy = Proxy.parse_url("socks5://123.123.123.123:9190")

We recommend entering IP-based access control for incoming addresses to proxy. IP address required by Anticaptcha.com is:

69.65.41.21
209.212.146.168

Error handling

In the event of an application error, the AnticaptchaException exception is thrown. To handle the exception, do the following:

from python_anticaptcha import AnticatpchaException, ImageToTextTask

try:
    # any actions
except AnticatpchaException as e:
    if e.error_code == 'ERROR_ZERO_BALANCE':
        notify_about_no_funds(e.error_id, e.error_code, e.error_description)
    else:
        raise
