RSS parsing with batteries included
superss ====== RSS parsing with batteries included
feedparser is great, but sometimes it doesn’t put things in the same place. superss fixes this by finding all known candidates for urls, content, images, tags, dates, and authors and intelligently picks the best candidate. It also does some other cool things like author parsing with lauteur, url reconciliation with siegfried, and pulling links and images out of the article html.
Another problem with RSS parsing is that feeds sometimes only include a summary of the article. superss can also extract the article’s full text from the page itself using tk-name-of-article-extractor and then intelligently merging this data with the data from the feed.
pip install superss
Requires nose. (only currently tests full_text rss feeds.)
grab full-text feeds:
from superss import SupeRSS s = SupeRSS('http://feeds.feedburner.com/publici_rss') for entry in s.run(): print entry
Grab non-full-text feeds:
from superss import SupeRSS s = SupeRSS('http://feeds.feedburner.com/publici_rss', is_full_text = False) for entry in s.run(): print entry
Experimental: Build a feed from a homepage:
from superss import SupeRSS s = SupeRSS(homepage = 'http://nytimes.com/') for entry in s.run(): print entry
- [ ] Include article extraction
- [ ] Add optional concurrency with gevent
