csteamer (content steamer)

STATUS:

CSteamer is RIDICULOUSLY EARLY IN ITS DEVELOPMENT. IT'S LESS THAN 24 HOURS OLD AND NOT EVEN VAGUELY DONE!! The demo below will certainly work though ;-)

DESCRIPTION:

CSteamer extracts metadata and machine-usable data from otherwise unstructured HTML documents.

For example, if you have a blog post HTML file, CSteamer should, in theory, be able to extract the title, the actual “content”, images relating to the content, look up Delicious tags, and analyze for keywords.

SYNOPSIS:

  • Basic demo:

    require 'open-uri'
    require 'csteamer'
    doc = CSteamer::Document.new(open('http://www.rubyinside.com/cramp-asychronous-event-driven-ruby-web-app-framework-2928.html'))
    doc.title   # => "Cramp: Asychronous Event-Driven Ruby Web App Framework"
    doc.author  # => "Peter Cooper"
    doc.lede    # => "CoffeeScript (GitHub repo) is a new programming language with a pure Ruby compiler. Creator Jeremy Ashkenas calls it "JavaScript's less ostentatious kid brother" - mostly because it compiles into JavaScript and shares most of the same constructs, but with a different, tighter syntax."
