ViewText API

The ViewText API allows users to request online article text in JSONP format. ViewText transforms web pages into an easy to read format, cleaned of navigation elements, scripts, and other objects, leaving only text to read. Users give ViewText a URL, and it returns just the page content. ViewText also handles RSS feeds, transforming feeds which contain snippets of content into a new feed containing the full article content. Future releases of ViewText will handle additional formats. ViewText was created to make browsing news articles and blog posts easier on mobile phones.

The ViewText API scrapes the page and attempts to remove the design elements so that the content can be viewed in plain text. It uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSONP.
