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.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
