A simple Python wrapper around the DBLP API, currently supporting author search and author and publication lookup.
Let's search for Michael Ley, DBLP maintainer. Try
>>> import dblp >>> #do a simple author search for michael ley >>> authors = dblp.search('michael ley') >>> michael = authors >>> print michael.name Michael Ley >>> print len(michael.publications) 31
If you'd like to learn more about Michael's work, you can explore his publications. All publication results are lazy-loaded, so have at it
>>> print michael.publications.title DBLP - Some Lessons Learned. >>> print michael.publications.journal PVLDB >>> print michael.publications.year 2009
More information about a publication can often be found at its ee URL - in this case, a link to the PDF
>>> print michael.publications.ee http://www.vldb.org/pvldb/2/vldb09-98.pdf
Other publication and author attributes are documented with their respective classes- just use help(). Enjoy!
