Python client for the Readability Reader and Parser APIs.

Project description


readability-api is the official python client for Readability. It provides access to both the Parser API and the Reader API.

The latest version can be installed via pip:

pip install readability-api

Please refer to the official docs for more information and examples.


Valid Parser, Reader, username, and password must be set as environment variables before running the tests. This test suit runs agains the live Readability API and also serves as integration tests. We recommend creating a seperate testing user account on Readability to avoid disturbing your reading list. Note: These tests do reset the bookmarks library of the provided user when complete. They should not be run on your primary user account!

# If you don't have it
pip install tox



API Keys and Access

Don’t have Readability API keys? You can find them on your Readability account settings page.
