Amazon Cover search

I’ve been amusing myself with a little project of sorts. It only took an hour of coding, and that also because I’d forgotten all I knew of Python.

I wrote of small Python script that takes some search keyword as arguments, looks up for a matching audio cd on Amazon, and generates a HTML page with links & previews to the cd’s cover art. Quite simple really, if you use the excellent PyAmazon wrapper. And fun to do.

This is nothing of an achievement, it’s just that I’ve not been coding for a while. This is something that I can use. I’ve almost decided one thing, if I have to code my final project in Java, I’m gonna use Jython.
