A Go library to converts HTML into Gemini text/gemini (gemtext)
This is forked from https://jaytaylor.com/html2text with the following changes:
- output text/gemini format
- use footnote style references
Turns HTML into text/gemini to be served over gemini, or incorporated into a client.
html2gemini is a simple golang package for rendering HTML into plaintext.
Download the package
go get github.com/LukeEmmet/html2gemini
See https://github.com/LukeEmmet/html2gmi which is a practical command line application that uses this library. Also see https://github.com/LukeEmmet/duckling-proxy which is an HTTP via Gemini proxy server so you can browse the web from any Gemini client that supports scheme-specific proxies.
To simplify the html passed to this library, you could simplify or sanitise it first, for example using https://github.com/philipjkim/goreadability
Running the unit-tests is straightforward and standard:
