Find the feed URLs for a website.

Project Description

This is an asynchronous Python library for finding links feeds on a website.

It is based on the synchronous (requests based) feedfinder2, written by Dan Foreman-Mackey, which is based on feedfinder - originally written by Mark Pilgrim and subsequently maintained by Aaron Swartz until his untimely death.


Feedfinder2 offers a single public function: find_feeds. You would use it as following:

import asyncio
from aio_feedfinder2 import find_feeds

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
task = asyncio.ensure_future(find_feeds(""))
feeds = loop.run_until_complete(future)

Now, feeds is the list: ['', '']. There is some attempt made to rank feeds from best candidate to worst but… well… you never know.

This asyncio variant is ideally suited to find feeds on multiple domains/ sites in an asynchronous way:

import asyncio
from aio_feedfinder2 import find_feeds

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
tasks = [find_feeds(url) for url in ["", ""]]
feeds = loop.run_until_complete(asyncio.gather(*tasks))

>>> feeds
... [
...     ['', ''],
...     ['', '']
... ]


Feedfinder2 is licensed under the MIT license (see LICENSE).
