How to download and process SEC XBRL Data Directly from EDGAR

Earlier this year I presented a webinar for XBRL.US where I demonstrated how you can use the vast number of XBRL filings that have been submitted by public companies to the SEC and are available for free to download from the SEC's EDGAR system:



Since then I've occasionally received requests for the slides used in that webinar, and the slides are available on SlideShare now.

In addition, several people wanted to see and reuse the complete Python scripts that I demonstrated in the webinar, so I have now uploaded those and published them in a new GitHub repository:

These scripts are available under an Apache 2 license and require Python 3 as well as RaptorXML+XBRL Server installed on your machine. For more details, please see the README file published on GitHub.
