I am unable to maintain this project properly anymore, let me know if you'd be interested in taking over

A python wrapper for Boilerpipe, an excellent Java library for boilerplate removal and fulltext extraction from HTML pages.

Configuration

Dependencies: jpype, charade

The boilerpipe jar files will get fetched and included automatically when building the package.

Usage

Be sure to have set JAVA_HOME properly since jpype depends on this setting.

The constructor takes a keyword argment extractor, being one of the available boilerpipe extractor types:

  • DefaultExtractor
  • ArticleExtractor
  • ArticleSentencesExtractor
  • KeepEverythingExtractor
  • KeepEverythingWithMinKWordsExtractor
  • LargestContentExtractor
  • NumWordsRulesExtractor
  • CanolaExtractor

If no extractor is passed the DefaultExtractor will be used by default. Additional keyword arguments are either html for HTML text or url.

from boilerpipe.extract import Extractor
extractor = Extractor(extractor='ArticleExtractor', url=your_url)

Then, to extract relevant content:

extracted_text = extractor.getText()

extracted_html = extractor.getHTML()
