This python script parses the participation lists from the amiv webpage. It
outputs csv files for participants and their guests.
## Usage
First download the current participants page in your browser: Go to the
participants list, right click and select "save this page" or "save as...". Then
select html only and save it. Then point the parse script to the downloaded html
file as follows:
`./ file.html`
#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys
import csv
filename = sys.argv[1]
primaryguest_tag = "<td>*</td><td>"
primaryguest_endtag = "</td>"
maleguest_tag = "<span>maleguest:</span> "
maleguest_endtag = "<br>"
femaleguest_tags = ["<span>femaleguest1:</span> ", "<span>femaleguest2:</span> "]
femaleguest_endtags = ["<br>", "<br>"]
# This function searches for the names of the participants in the html text
def getParticipants(text, tag, endTag):
participants = []
index = text.find(tag)
while index < len(text) and index != -1:
# get the location of the endtag
index_end = text.find(endTag, index+len(tag))
if index_end != index+len(tag):
index = text.find(tag, index+1)
return participants
# This function tries to split names in forename and surname
# It simply searches for the last space in the string and splits the string
# at that position.
def splitNames(name):
index = name.rfind(" ")
if index != -1:
return (name[0:index], name[index+1:])
else: # assume only forename
return (name, "")
# open file
with open(filename, 'r') as html:
text =;
participants_primary = getParticipants(text, primaryguest_tag, primaryguest_endtag)
# filter unconrfirmed
for i in range(0, len(participants_primary)):
index = participants_primary[i].find(" <span>(unconfirmed)</span>")
if index != -1:
participants_primary[i] = participants_primary[i][0:index]
participants_male = getParticipants(text, maleguest_tag, maleguest_endtag)
participants_female = []
for i in range(0, len(femaleguest_tags)):
participants_female.extend(getParticipants(text, femaleguest_tags[i],
participants = participants_primary
part_female_split = [splitNames(name) for name in participants_female]
part_male_split = [splitNames(name) for name in participants_male]
part_primary_split = [splitNames(name) for name in participants_primary]
part_split = [splitNames(name) for name in participants]
# sort for lastnames
part_female_split.sort(key=lambda t: t[1])
part_male_split.sort(key=lambda t: t[1])
part_primary_split.sort(key=lambda t: t[1])
part_split.sort(key=lambda t: t[1])
with open("complete_list.csv", "w") as csvfile:
writer = csv.writer(csvfile, delimiter=',', quotechar='|',
for name in part_split:
