twitter-text-python

twitter-text-python is a Tweet parser and formatter for Python. Extract users, hashtags, URLs and format as HTML for display.

PyPI release: https://pypi.org/project/twitter-text-python/

installation

$ pip install twitter-text-python

compatibility

twitter-text-python has been tested with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, and 3.7.

usage

>>> from ttp import ttp
>>> p = ttp.Parser()
>>> result = p.parse("@burnettedmond, you now support #IvoWertzel's tweet parser! https://github.com/edmondburnett/")
>>> result.reply
'burnettedmond'
>>> result.users
['burnettedmond']
>>> result.tags
['IvoWertzel']
>>> result.urls
['https://github.com/edmondburnett/']
>>> result.html
u'<a href="http://twitter.com/burnettedmond">@burnettedmond</a>, you now support <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23IvoWertzel">#IvoWertzel</a>\'s tweet parser! <a href="https://github.com/edmondburnett/">https://github.com/edmondburnett/</a>'

If you need different HTML output just subclass and override the format_* methods.

You can also ask for the span tags to be returned for each entity:

>>> p = ttp.Parser(include_spans=True)
>>> result = p.parse("@burnettedmond, you now support #IvoWertzel's tweet parser! https://github.com/edmondburnett/")
>>> result.urls
[('https://github.com/edmondburnett/', (57, 87))]

To use the shortlink follower (depends on the Requests library):

>>> from ttp import utils
>>> # assume that result.urls == ['http://t.co/8o0z9BbEMu', u'http://bbc.in/16dClPF']
>>> print utils.follow_shortlinks(result.urls)  # pass in list of shortlink URLs
{'http://t.co/8o0z9BbEMu': [u'http://t.co/8o0z9BbEMu', u'http://bbc.in/16dClPF', u'http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/21711199#TWEET650562'], u'http://bbc.in/16dClPF': [u'http://bbc.in/16dClPF', u'http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/21711199#TWEET650562']}
 >>> # note that bad shortlink URLs have a key to an empty list (lost/forgotten shortlink URLs don't generate any error)
