./www/py-mechanize, Stateful programmatic web browsing in Python

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.2.5, Package name: py27-mechanize-0.2.5, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Stateful programmatic web browsing, after Andy Lester's Perl module

The library is layered: mechanize.Browser (stateful web browser),
mechanize.UserAgent (configurable URL opener), plus urllib2 handlers.

Features include: ftp:, http: and file: URL schemes, browser history,
high-level hyperlink and HTML form support, HTTP cookies, HTTP-EQUIV
and Refresh, Referer [sic] header, robots.txt, redirections, proxies,
and Basic and Digest HTTP authentication. mechanize's response
objects are (lazily-) .seek()able and still work after .close().

Required to run:
[devel/py-setuptools] [lang/python27]

Log message:
Mark packages as not ready for python-3.x where applicable;
either because they themselves are not ready or because a
dependency isn't. This is annotated by
PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCOMPATIBLE=  33 # not yet ported as of x.y.z
respectively, please use the same style for other packages,
and check during updates.

Use versioned_dependencies.mk where applicable.
Use REPLACE_PYTHON instead of handcoded alternatives, where applicable.
Reorder Makefile sections into standard order, where applicable.

Remove PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCLUDE_3X lines since that will be default
with the next commit.

Whitespace cleanups and other nits corrected, where necessary.

Log message:
Update py-mechanize to 0.2.5.
(added test target)

2011-03-31 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.5 release.
	* This is essentially a no-changes release to fix easy_install
	  breakage caused by a SourceForge issue
	* Sourceforge is returning invalid HTTP responses, make download
	  links point to PyPI instead
	* Include cookietest.cgi in source distribution
	* Note new IETF cookie standardisation effort

2010-10-28 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.4 release.
	* Fix IndexError on empty Content-type header value. (GH-18)
	* Fall back to another encoding if an unknown one is declared.
	  Fixes traceback on unknoqn encoding in Content-type header.

2010-10-16 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.3 release.
	* Fix str(ParseError()) traceback. (GH-25)
	* Add equality methods to mechanize.Cookie . (GH-29)

2010-07-17 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.2 release.
	* Officially support Python 2.7 (no changes were required)
	* Fix TypeError on .open()ing ftp: URL (only affects Python 2.4
	  and 2.5)
	* Don't include HTTPSHandler in __all__ if it's not available

2010-05-16 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.1 release.
	* API change: Change argument order of
	  HTTPRedirectHandler.redirect_request() to match urllib2.
	* Fix failure to use bundled BeautifulSoup for forms. (GH-15)
	* Fix default cookie path where request path has query containing
	  / character. (http://bugs.python.org/issue3704)
	* Fix failure to raise on click for nonexistent label. (GH-16)
	* Documentation fixes.

2010-04-22 John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>
	* 0.2.0 release.
	* Behaviour change: merged upstream urllib2 change (allegedly a
	  "bug fix") to return a response for all 2** HTTP responses (e.g.
	  206 Partial Content).  Previously, only 200 caused a response
	  object to be returned.  All other HTTP response codes resulted
	  in a response object being raised as an exception.
	* Behaviour change: Use of mechanize classes with `urllib2` (and
	  vice-versa) is no longer supported.  However, existing classes
	  implementing the urllib2 Handler interface are likely to work
	  unchanged with mechanize.  Removed RequestUpgradeProcessor,
	  ResponseUpgradeProcessor, SeekableProcessor.
	* ClientForm has been merged into mechanize.  This means that
	  mechanize has no dependencies other than Python itself.  The
	  ClientForm API is still available -- to switch from ClientForm to
	  mechanize, just s/ClientForm/mechanize in your source code, and
	  ensure any use of the module logging logger named "ClientForm" is
	  updated to use the new logger name "mechanize.forms".  I probably
	  won't do further standalone releases of ClientForm.
	* Stop monkey-patching Python stdlib.
	* Merge fixes from urllib2 trunk
	* Close file objects on .read() failure in .retrieve()
	* Fix a python 2.4 bug due to buggy urllib.splithost
	* Fix Python 2.4 syntax error in _firefox3cookiejar
	* Fix __init__.py typo that hid mechanize.seek_wrapped_response and
	  mechanize.str2time.  Fixes
	* Fix an obvious bug with experimental firefox 3 cookiejar support.
	  It's still experimental and not properly tested.
	* Change documentation to not require a .port attribute on request
	  objects, since that's unused.
	* Doc fixes
	* Added mechanize.urljoin (RFC 3986 compliant function for joining
	  a base URI with a URI reference)
	* Merge of ClientForm (see above).
	* Moved to git (from SVN) http://github.com/jjlee/mechanize
	* Created an issue tracker http://github.com/jjlee/mechanize/issues
	* Docs are now in markdown format (thanks John Gabriele).
	* Website rearranged.  The old website has been archived at
	  http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/old/ .  The new website is
	  essentially just the mechanize pages, rearranged and cleaned up a
	* Source code rearranged for easier merging with upstream urllib2
	* Fully automated release process.
	* New test runner.  Single test suite; tests create their own HTTP
	  server fixtures (server fixtures are cached where possible for
