    If Google News had a Python library

    Project mention: 68k.news: A Netscape 1.1 makeover of Google News | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-29

    I'm curious where the data get fetched from. The Author mentions that Mozilla Readability and SimplePie are used.

    Readability to parse the content. SimplePie to fetch the data (I assume). Dat from RSS feeds?

    In case you want to make something similar, I recently wrote a blog on where you could get news data for free [1]

    (self-promo) I'd recommend to take a look at my Python package to mine news data from Google News [2]. Also, in 3 days we're releasing an absolutely free News API [3] that will support ~50-100k top stories per day.

    Project mention: XSLT How Do I Handle XML Escape Characters? | reddit.com/r/xml | 2021-02-02

    I was afraid of that. I was starting to think that how my Atom feed is created is not properly formed XML. I'm using this to build the feed, https://github.com/jekyll/jekyll-feed/blob/master/lib/jekyll-feed/feed.xml. See line number 66 for the content I'm talking about ({{ post.content | strip | xml_escape }}). Maybe I just can't do what I'm trying to accomplish using only XSLT. I just wanted to have the option for the user of having the summary or the full on content with HTML markup and all. BTW, the file I referenced is written with Liquid Template Language.
