mf2py

Build Status

Can I Use Python 3?

Python parser for microformats 2.

Current status: Full-featured and mostly stable. Implements the full mf2 spec, including backward compatibility with microformats1.

Documentation, code tidying and so on is rather lacking.

License: MIT

Install

pip install mf2py

Usage

Import the parser using

import mf2py

Parse a file containing the content

with open('file/content.html','r') as file:
    obj = mf2py.parse(doc=file)

Parse string containing content

content = '<article class="h-entry"><h1 class="p-name">Hello</h1></article>'
obj = mf2py.parse(doc=content)

Parse content from a URL

obj = mf2py.parse(url="http://tommorris.org/")

parse is a convenience method that actually delegates to mf2py.Parser to do the real work. More sophisticated behaviors are available by invoking the object directly.

Get parsed microformat in a variety of formats

p = mf2py.Parser(...)
p.to_dict()  # returns a python dictionary
p.to_json()  # returns a JSON string

Filter by microformat type

p.to_dict(filter_by_type="h-entry")
p.to_json(filter_by_type="h-entry")

Experimental features

  • pass the optional argument img_with_alt=True to either the Parser object or to the parse method to enable parsing of the alt attribute of <img> tags according to issue: image alt text is lost during parsing. By default this is False to be backwards compatible.

FAQ

  • I passed mf2py.parse() a BeautifulSoup document, and it got modified!

Yes, mf2py currently does that. We're working on preventing it! Hopefully soon.

Frontends

A basic web interface for mf2py and mf2util is available at mf2py-web.

A hosted live version can be found at python.microformats.io.
