FeedParser

Rss and Atom feed parser built on top of Nokogiri. Supports custom sanitizers.

Build Status

Build Status

FeedParser gem is tested on Ruby 1.9.3 and 2.0.0. 1.8.7 should work with Nokogiri < 1.6.0.

Install

Add to Gemfile

gem "feed_parser"

Usage

Parse from URL

fp = FeedParser.new(:url => "http://example.com/feed/")
feed = fp.parse

Optionally pass HTTP options, see more from the OpenURI documentation: http://apidock.com/ruby/OpenURI

fp = FeedParser.new(:url => "http://example.com/feed/", :http => {:ssl_verify_mode => OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE})

Parse from an XML string

fp = FeedParser.new(:feed_xml => "<rss>...</rss>")
feed = fp.parse

Use sanitizer

fp = FeedParser.new(:url => "http://example.com/feed/", :sanitizer => MyBestestSanitizer.new)
# sanitizing custom field set
fp = FeedParser.new(:url => "http://example.com/feed/", :sanitizer => MyBestestSanitizer.new, :fields_to_sanitize => [:title, :content])

Using parsed feed in your code

feed.as_json
# => {:title => "Feed title", :url => "http://example.com/feed/", :items => [{:guid => , :title => , :author => ...}]}

feed.items.each do |feed_item|
  pp feed_item
end

If the XML is not a valid RSS or an ATOM feed, a FeedParser::UnknownFeedType is raised in FeedParser#parse.
