My company is working with eBay on a services integration. In order to begin this integration, I need to programmatically retrieve a set of categories for a region and then iterate over those categories to get a large set of currently listed items under those categories.
I've used this example of getting categories using a restful call:
My question is how best to iterate over the results and search for N items in each category, where N is a large number (we need to return a large sample of available items, perhaps selected for popularity). I will be storing the results in a set of XML files.
Also, is the eBay search API available as a python library?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
