  • GitHub repo trafilatura

    Web scraping library and command-line tool for text discovery and extraction (main content, metadata, comments)

    Project mention: What's something self hosted everyone needs to run ? | | 2021-09-02

    The only RSS-reader(not an aggregator like freshrss) with a parser included i know of is RSSowlNix (which still works but it's a bit old/not very leightweight). I wrote myself a little dirty workaround in python to solve this problem (since im a noob in PHP). It reads the sqlite database of freshrss, adds a new column to every article to mark articles, that are already parsed and then i use trafilatura to give fulltext parsing a try for every newly added article. To be on the safe site i use it with a proxy. Not all pages work (some javascript gdpr popups are a nightmare), and you cannot jump over paywalls but it works most of the times.

    I dusted off an old web-scraping project (activesoup) that I wrote a few years ago and don't really use much myself anymore, but I think it gets a little bit of usage by others, since every few months I see a new star on github, or a small issue or feature request is filed.
