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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
