Parse feeds in Python


feedparser - Parse Atom and RSS feeds in Python.

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


Feedparser can be installed using distutils or setuptools by running:

$ python install

If you're using Python 3, feedparser will automatically be updated by the 2to3 tool; installation should be seamless across Python 2 and Python 3.

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 that has been growing for a decade. If you'd like to run the tests yourself, you can run the following command:

$ python

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