I think it’s a bit of a shared frustration that AO3 doesn’t have a public API, which makes getting data harder than it could be.

I needed to get access to AO3 data in a Python script (specifically, some scripts for auto-tagging AO3 bookmarks on Pinboard), and so I threw together a Python module that acts as a pseudo-API. This is very rough code, written in a hurry, but it works and proves the concept. It’s probably not the easiest thing to install (sorry) but the README should give you some idea of what’s available.

Potentially of extra interest: this gives you a way to get a list of all fics where you’ve left kudos. (Albeit it very slowly, if you’ve read a lot of stuff.)

I couldn't find anything to export Ao3 bookmarks to Pinboard, so I threw together a python script to do so. Some friends of mine wanted a copy, and so I threw it up on GitHub. You have to know how to run a python script, and it relies on a couple python packages, but it's pretty simple to do.
It was a little slapped together, and is not the most beautiful code in the world, but if you want to check it out and let me know how it works for you, that'd be cool. Just remember to turn off any sort of Twitter/etc crossposting or your tlist will want to murder you for spamming. :)
