All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file.

The format is based on Keep a Changelog.

Unreleased

2.16 - 2020-01-12

This will be the last release with Python 2 support.

Added

  • Many, many comics :D
  • Comic modules can now use a proper HTML parser (based on lxml) with XPath or CSS expressions.
  • Users are notified if they are using modules which were removed/moved/renamed.
  • Use CodeClimate to analyse source code quality and CodeCov to track test coverage.

Changed

  • Annotation text can now be optional (Fetching a comic doesn't fail if it doesn't appear on every page).
  • When using HTML output, next and previous links are now also at the end of the page.
  • Use the Python import system (previously PEP-302) instead of the file system to find modules.
  • Remove embedded colorama, depend on it instead.
  • Replace homegrown PY2/3 compatibility with six.
  • Build dosage website with staticsite.
  • Reworked comic module structure. Webcomics are now class instances instead of classes. While this doesn't change that much for single comic modules, "virtual" modules covering multiple comics can now be written much more concise. See issue #42 for details.
  • Windows build is now one standalone EXE file (thanks to PyInstaller).
  • Allow combining -n with -c or -a (related to #90). This allows to set an upper bound to normally "unconstrained" fetch modes.
  • Replace forced "sleep" between requests with a simple host-based throttling mechanism.
  • Uses imagesize instead of Pillow to get image sizes. (Pillow is a very big libary with many binary dependencies and we were using only this feature from it)

Removed

  • Many, many broken/disappered comics :(

Fixed

  • Many, many comics :D
  • Let Requests figure out encodings.

Added

  • Fix indexed mode up a bit: The documentation has better examples now.

0.0.1

  • Initial public release
