I just learnt using web3 to interact with Ethereum.

  1. Is there a similar library to web3 to work with Ethereum Classic?

  2. Is there a testnet faucet?

  3. Does it work with Parity?

Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. You don't need a similar library, web3 (js or python or anything else) can be used with ETC. Ethereum and Ethereum Classic nodes share the same JSON-RPC API. Here's a tutorial.
  2. Sure, there's this ETC Testnet faucet for the former Morden testnet (dully called now "The Testnet").
  3. Of course! Just run parity --chain classic. Run parity --help for more info.

As an important side note, there's a recent movement to spin up a cross-client PoA testnet which will be compatible with most of, if not all, the Ethereum clients out there (geth-eth, geth-etc, parity etc). It is called Goerli and you can read more about it in this article.
