Tools for ascribing authorship - to the chagrin of Barthes

Project description

travis-img lauteur ====== Tools for ascribing authorship - to the chagrin of `Barthes <>`__


pip install lauteur


Requires nose



lauteur has two methods: from_string and from_html

from_string is mostly used in RSS Feed parsing where authors are sometimes embedded as bylines:

import lauteur

string = 'By: Brian Abelson ,and Michael H. Keller & Dr. Stijn Debrouwere IV'
authors = lauteur.from_string(string)
print authors

# ['Brian Abelson', 'Michael H Keller', 'DR Stijn Debrouwere IV']

from_html searches through common meta tags for authors.

import lauteur
import requests

r = requests.get('')

authors = lauteur.from_html(r.content)
print authors
# ['Michiko Kakutani']


  • [ ] Find more meta tags.

  • [ ] Improve name formatting algorithm.
