xkcdDownloader

Downloads each XKCD comic and its respective title-text (the hidden text that appears when you mouse over the comic), combines them into a single image and saves the combined images for all comics to a user-specified directory. Dependencies include:

###Example 1

To download all comics in PNG form into a subdirectory within the current directory called xkcd_images, type the following at the command line:

python xkcdDownloader.py

###Example 2 To specify the directory and change the image type:

python xkcdDownloder.py /my/xkcd/image/directory/ jpg

In this second example, "/my/xkcd/image/directory/" is the directory xkcdDownloader will save all comics into, and "jpg" is the file format. For a full list of all available image formats see the Python Image Library Documentation.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
