feedparser - Parse Atom and RSS feeds in Python.

Copyright 2010-2015 Kurt McKee <>
Copyright 2002-2008 Mark Pilgrim

feedparser is open source. See the LICENSE file for more information.


Feedparser can be installed using distutils or setuptools by running:

$ python install

Note: sgmllib3k is a Python 3 dependency. It will be installed automatically.


The feedparser documentation is available on the web at:

It is also included in its source format, ReST, in the docs/ directory. To build the documentation you'll need the Sphinx package, which is available at:

You can then build HTML pages using a command similar to:

$ sphinx-build -b html docs/ fpdocs

This will produce HTML documentation in the fpdocs/ directory.


Feedparser has an extensive test suite, powered by tox. To run it, type this:

$ tox

This will spawn an HTTP server that will listen on port 8097. The tests will fail if that port is in use.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
