HTML to TEXT style (News story)

Hi

I would like to get news in text in Jupyter Notebook.

But I can get news only in HTML.

How can I get text style news story?

headlines = ek.get_news_headlines('IBM') for index, headline_row in headlines.iterrows(): story=ek.get_news_story(headline_row['storyId'])

print (story, content-Type: text/html)

With Jupyter Notebook, you can use HTML() to display it as HTML.

from IPython.display import HTML
...

headlines = ek.get_news_headlines('IBM') 
for index, headline_row in headlines.iterrows(): story=ek.get_news_story(headline_row['storyId'])

HTML(story)

A Python library is available for this : https://pypi.python.org/pypi/html2text

There is more info here : https://github.com/Alir3z4/html2text/blob/master/docs/usage.md

Simple example with options:

import html2text
...
text_maker = html2text.HTML2Text()
text_maker.ignore_links = True
text_maker.bypass_tables = False
html_story = ek.get_news_story(headline_row['storyId'])
text_story = = text_maker.handle(html_story)
print(text_story)
