Latest Version: 0.2.9

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.

Finally, some sites don’t even have RSS feeds. In this page we combine pageone and particle to create a feed of articles from article urls on a site’s homepage.


pip install superss


Requires nose. (only currently tests full_text rss feeds.)



grab full-text feeds:

from superss import SupeRSS

s = SupeRSS('')
for entry in
  print entry

Grab non-full-text feeds:

from superss import SupeRSS

s = SupeRSS('', is_full_text = False)
for entry in
  print entry

Experimental: Build a feed from a homepage:

from superss import SupeRSS

s = SupeRSS(homepage = '')
for entry in
  print entry
