Project description


Python package that helps you easily retrieve complete web articles.

License: MIT pypi: newsdatascraper



pip3 install newsdatascraper


from newsdatascraper import Scraper
#To first get a single article on a topic
new_scraper = Scraper('mock-api-key')
articles = new_scraper.fetch_all_articles(query='two sigma', pageSize = 10)

We support two APIs: NewsApi and GNewsApi
To control the API being used change the argument of mode to either 'NEWSPAPER' or 'GNEWS'

new_scraper = Scraper('mock-api-key', mode = 'GNEWS')
articles = new_scraper.fetch_all_articles(query='two sigma', pageSize = 10, 
              dateFrom = "2019-08-04", dateTo = "2019-08-10")

#To access individual articles and their properties
first_article = articles.articles[0]
#We also provide helper functions to serialize the data

Important Note

Please look at rate limits in the APIs to determine your prefered usage
