A tool for web news scraping.

Project description


A tool for scraping news from web.

There is no AI here, just good old-fashioned if-else rules.


Basic usage:

import newsman

# start reading
src = ''
news =

# show articles
for article in news:
    print(f'Url: {article.url.url}')
    print(f'Title: {article.title}')
    print(f'Text: {article.text}')
    print(f'Main image: {article.main_image}')

Customizing configuration:

import newsman

# get configuration
config = newsman.get_config()

# add a proxy for connection
config['proxies'] = proxies

# update accepted/rejected domains
config['accepted_domains'] = ['', '']
config['rejected_domains'] += ['', '']

# override default values for web retrieval
config['link_depth'] = 2            # crawling depth level
config['scan_limit'] = 10           # max. number of scanned sites

# set pipes
pipes = ['byte2html', 'html2text', 'text2title', 'html2image']
news = newsman.News(config, pipes)

src = ''
pages = news(src)

Proxy information is formatted according to Requests format.


pip install newsman
