beeb is a light alternative to
get_iplayer(10,000 lines of Perl) and
youtube-dl(750+ compatible sites).
These libraries aim to be deep and broad,
beebjust aims to be specific and quick, handling common use cases (scheduling and download links) clearly, in nicely object-oriented Python.
beeb is a radio catalogue that takes a nice async multiprocessing OOP approach, devolving certain tasks encountered when trying out machine transcription pipelines (see: tap).
After the code got to a good place, I also made a nice ident in Blender (see it swing into action on YouTube).
The usage is pretty simple, so no docs, and I didn't want to ping the BBC so no network tests. The library was a 'means to an end' (to access COVID-19 news when the prospect of reading/listening at length was in turns draining/anxiety inducing), and it served this purpose well.
It's useful to see how tools like
youtube-dl work (and why you maybe don't want to use them, e.g.
you can skip a lot of the extensive coding by making some reasonable assumptions; also you're not
tied to the many other sites/services that tool uses).
