Mercury Parser: extract content from URLs (e.g. for RSS aggregators)
necrevistonnezr last edited by
Mercury Parser allows to pull fulltext content from URLs- It's the engine used in Reeder, NewsBlur, Feedbin, News Explorer, Feedly, Apollo (for Reddit), Medium, Bear, Zapier, etc.
It would allow to self host the service for the Cloudron apps FreshRSS and Tiny Tiny RSS (and maybe even more that I don't think of right now?!)
Postlight's Mercury Parser extracts the bits that humans care about from any URL you give it. That includes article content, titles, authors, published dates, excerpts, lead images, and more.
Mercury Parser powers the Mercury AMP Converter and Mercury Reader, a Chrome extension that removes ads and distractions, leaving only text and images for a beautiful reading view on any site.
