In this article, you will learn how to read RSS feed in Python.
Read RSS Feed in Python
Reading RSS feeds in Python can be done using the built-in feedparser library. Here are the steps you can follow:
Install feedparser library by running the following command in your terminal:
pip install feedparser
Import the feedparser library in your Python script:
Use the feedparser.parse() function to parse the RSS feed:
This function returns a dictionary with the parsed feed data.
rss_url = "https://example.com/feed" feed = feedparser.parse(rss_url)
Replace “https://example.com/feed” with the URL of the RSS feed you want to read.
Access the feed data:
Now, you can access the feed data using the dictionary keys. For example, to print the title and description of each feed item, you can use a for loop like this:
for item in feed["items"]: print(item["title"]) print(item["description"]) print("\n")
The feed[“items”] key contains a list of all feed items.
