Python interface to the Akismet API

Akismet is a web service for recognising spam comments. It promises to be almost 100 effective at catching comment spam. They say that currently 81 of all comments submitted to them are spam.

It’s designed to work with the Wordpress Blog Tool, but it’s not restricted to that - so this is a Python interface to the Akismet API.

You’ll need a Wordpress Key to use it. This script will allow you to plug akismet into any CGI script or web application, and there are full docs in the code. It’s extremely easy to use, because the folks at akismet have implemented a nice and straightforward REST API.
