PhlyComic: retrieve comic sources
This module/library is intended for retrieving URLs to comics found on the web for purposes of linking and/or viewing. The comics remain the property of respective copyright holders; I do not endorse retrieving the comics for local storage, and request that if you create markup for displaying them that you link to the originals.
- PHP >= 5.3.3
- Zend Framework 2 >= 2.0.0beta1, specifically:
- Zend\Console, which is used for the console scripts
- Zend\Dom\Query, used for some web scraping
- Zend\Module, but only if you want to integrate this into a ZF2 MVC application
This module is ZF2 Console-aware. It defines the following console tools:
phlycomic list, which will list all available comics
phlycomic fetch comic --name, which allows you to fetch a single comic by name
phlycomic fetch all, which will fetch all comics at once and write to a single file
Comic files are written by default to
data/comics/ of your application; you
can change this by overriding the configuration; see
Typical usage will look like this from your application:
% php public/index.php phlycomic list
% php public/index.php phlycomic fetch comic --name=nih
% php public/index.php phlycomic fetch all
