ttx - Swedish Teletext reader

Attention! As of April 2021, SVT have changed the format of their teletext webpages. This means the current version of ttx is now useless. An upgraded version of ttx might or might not be released in the near or far future.

ttx is a Python script for reading the teletext pages published by SVT, Sweden's public service television company.

ttx has been developed on and for Linux, but will probably work on most Unix-like systems. ttx is released under the MIT license. It requires Python 3.5 to work and is linted with these settings.


The latest release is v1.2 (2020-11-01)
