arc90's readability running on ruby in harmony
JavaScript Ruby
Latest commit 1e0548a @rgabo rgabo Version bump to 0.1.5



The readability gem makes it easy to run Arc90's Readability script in Ruby using Nokogiri and Harmony. Harmony uses Johnson to run env.js in Ruby.


require 'rubygems'
require 'readability'
require 'open-uri'

# load document with Nokogiri
doc = Nokogiri::HTML(open(''))

# set Readability parameters
doc.read_style = Readability::Style::NEWSPAPER
doc.read_size = Readability::Size::MEDIUM
doc.read_margin = Readability::Margin::MEDIUM

# Print result after Readability has been run
puts doc.to_readable

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with Rakefile, VERSION, or LICENSE. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
