To retrieve the desired information from the websites we use parsers. There are four available parser types: wordpress, rss, html and dynamic.

WordPress V2

Parser type: wordpress-v2

By default, WordPress based websites has an open API for news retrieval. We make use of that to get access on the posts and categories of the website.

To check if a website supports that API simply open your browser and type <website-root-link>/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/. If a valid JSON file is displayed on the browser (or downloaded on your computer) which contains the website's posts, then you can safely use the wordpress parser.


Parser type: rss

Many websites support RSS feed. RSS allows users and applications to access updates to websites in a standardized, computer-readable format. You can check if a website supports RSS if you can see this icon .


Parser type: html

This parser uses scrapping tools like CheerioJS to scrape the website content and receive the displayed news. This parser is best to be used when the HTML in the website is structured. Websites where the HTML and CSS are not structured will be very difficult to scrape.


Parser type: dynamic

Unlike the other parsers, this parser uses javascript code to parse a website. All the logic for the scraping is decided by the user.
