I made a quick feed reader using feedparser in Python


I tried to get RSS using feedparser library in Python3. Python is a complete beginner.



I used a convenient one called feed parser. This is a great thing because it parses just by passing the URL and puts it in a nice dictionary.

I haven't seen the latest version of the document because I can't see it without building it, but old information says that it supports the main RSS / Atom documents.

Install with pip.

pip3 install feedparser

Easy to use.

import feedparser

url = 'https://gigazine.net/index.php?/news/rss_2.0/'

for entry in feedparser.parse(url).entries:

        'title': entry['title'],
        'link': entry['link'],
        'date': parseDate(entry['updated_parsed'] or entry['published_parsed'])
    for url in urls
    for entry in parse(url).entries

#Sort by date
entries.sort(key=lambda x: x['date'], reverse=True)

savedEntries = []

for entry in entries:
    #Display the title,

    #Ask the user for input
    userAction = input()

    if userAction == 'q':
        #If it is quit, it ends
    elif userAction == 's':
        #If it is save, store it in an array

for savedEntry in savedEntries:

in conclusion

It takes time to process because it collects data by itself. It seems good to display the progress with tqdm. I haven't registered so many URLs this time, so take another opportunity.

If you use Pocket API etc., you can automatically save to Pocket.

Even so, Python is difficult, isn't it? It was easy, but it can be quite annoying to me as I'm used to TypeScript ...
