Forchins is everything you could ask for in a 4chan scraper
lxml before using Forchins.Make sure you've installed
So, you want to grab some data off of 4chan, but it's too much work?
Look no further.
```python from forchins import forchins as f scraper = f.Scraper() #defaults to 'b' as the board on page 0 ``` Boom. Done. Now you've got the imageboard all to yourself. It's pretty easy to use.
```python from forchins import forchins as f scraper = f.Scraper() threads = scraper.fetch_threads() print threads ``` What you should see should be a dictionary. The root dictionary items are named for their post number. Fetching a thread.
It is important to note that this dictionary does not define the threads listed in their entirety, but only what was retrieved when the object was created, such as when viewing a page that lists current threads. Also, to maximize object reusability, this method returns the most recent results.
