"pod.py - A minimal cross-platform “podcatcher”"—Randi Mooney
I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts recently[...]. The standard podcast reciever is iPodder, a very feature rich program that is just too bloated for my needs: I want a cross platform downloader that can be scheduled from UNIX cron and works from the command line.
I went hunting for an alternative client[...]. Of course, what I really wanted was a Python based podcast reciever.
So I created pod.py - a pure Python Podcast reciever. It depends on the excellent 4suite XML processing library to do all the hard XML processing[...].
