fast html to text parser (article readability tool) with python 3 support
Given a html document, it pulls out the main body text and cleans it up.
This is a python port of a ruby port of arc90’s readability project.
It’s easy using pip, just run:
$ pip install readability-lxml
>>> import requests >>> from readability import Document >>> response = requests.get('http://example.com') >>> doc = Document(response.text) >>> doc.title() 'Example Domain' >>> doc.summary() """<html><body><div><body id="readabilityBody">\n<div>\n <h1>Example Domain</h1>\n <p>This domain is established to be used for illustrative examples in documents. You may use this\n domain in examples without prior coordination or asking for permission.</p> \n <p><a href="http://www.iana.org/domains/example">More information...</a></p>\n</div> \n</body>\n</div></body></html>"""
