The gofeed library is a robust feed parser that supports parsing both RSS, Atom and JSON feeds. The library provides a universal gofeed.Parser that will parse and convert all feed types into a hybrid gofeed.Feed model.

You also have the option of utilizing the feed specific atom.Parser or rss.Parser or json.Parser parsers which generate atom. Feed , rss.Feed and json.Feed respectively.

Supported feed types:

  • RSS 0.90
  • Netscape RSS 0.91
  • Userland RSS 0.91
  • RSS 0.92
  • RSS 0.93
  • RSS 0.94
  • RSS 1.0
  • RSS 2.0
  • Atom 0.3
  • Atom 1.0
  • JSON 1.0
  • JSON 1.1

python-readability is a python package that allows developers to extract the main content of a web page, removing any unnecessary or unwanted elements, such as ads, navigation, and sidebars.

It is based on the algorithm used by the popular web-based service, Readability, and it uses the beautifulsoup4 package to parse the HTML and extract the main content.

Readability is similar to Newspaper in terms that it's extracting HTML data

Example Use

// parse feed from URL
fp := gofeed.NewParser()
fp.UserAgent = "MyCustomAgent 1.0"  // we can modify http client with custom headers etc.
feed, _ := fp.ParseURL("")

// parse feed from string
feedData := `<rss version="2.0">
<title>Sample Feed</title>
fp := gofeed.NewParser()
feed, _ := fp.ParseString(feedData)

// or file
file, _ := os.Open("/path/to/a/file.xml")
defer file.Close()
fp := gofeed.NewParser()
feed, _ := fp.Parse(file)
import requests
from readability import document

response = requests.get('')
doc = document(response.content)
'example domain'
