In this lesson we want to learn How to Get Daily News with Python.
How to Get Daily News with Python ?
To get the daily news using Python you can scrape news articles from news websites or make use of news APIs. these are few ways to do this:
- Web Scraping: You can use a library such as BeautifulSoup or Scrapy to extract data from news websites. you would first send request to the website, retrieve the HTML content, and then extract the relevant information (such as the headlines, article text and publication date) using the library’s parsing tools.
- News APIs: Many news organizations provide APIs that allow developers to retrieve news articles programmatically. some popular news APIs include NewsAPI, the New York Times API and the Guardian API. You can use Python requests library to make request to the API and retrieve the latest news articles in a structured format.
This is an example of how you could use the NewsAPI to retrieve the latest news articles in Python:
# Make a request to the NewsAPI
url = "http://newsapi.org/v2/top-headlines?country=us&apiKey=YOUR_API_KEY"
response = requests.get(url)
# Convert the response to a Python dictionary
data = json.loads(response.text)
# Print the headlines
for article in data["articles"]:
Note: In the example above, you would need to replace YOUR_API_KEY with your actual NewsAPI key.
Run the complete code and you will see the newses.
