GitHub – andrewferguson/YahooGroups-Archiver: A simple Python script that archives all the messages from a public Yahoo Group

A simple python script that archives all messages from a public Yahoo Group
YahooGroups-Archiver allows you to make a backup copy of all the messages in a public group. Not only is all the message content downloaded, but also all other raw data that Yahoo uses to display the messages.

Messages are downloaded in a JSON format, with one .json file per message.

There is support for private groups, but this requires that you have a Yahoo groups account that has access to the private groups you want to archive. See the ‘Private Groups’ section for more info.

Works with both Python 2 and Python 3.
