Eurogamer / Digital Foundry Recipe


This is my first public recipe attempt, it works for the Digital Foundry (and probably other) feeds at Euro Gamer site.

Currently it's the initial state - i.e.: barely working. If you have any comments/suggestions/bugs, please do not hesitate to tell.

class DigitalFoundry(BasicNewsRecipe):
	author         = 'Sukru'
	title          = 'Eurogamer'
	oldest_article = 10
	max_articles_per_feed = 100
	no_stylesheets = True
	remove_javascript = True
	cover_url      = ''

	# Add other feeds from
	feeds          = [(u'Digital Foundry', u'')]

	INDEX = ''

	def remove_item(self, text, item):
		children = text.findAll(id=item)
		for child in children:

	def append_page(self, soup, appendtag, position):
		pager = soup.find('li',attrs={'class':'next'})
		if pager:
			nexturl = pager.a['href']
			print "adding page", nexturl
			soup2 = self.index_to_soup(self.INDEX + nexturl)
			texttag = soup2.find('div', id='blog')
			newpos = len(texttag.contents)

	def preprocess_html(self, soup):
		text = soup.find('div', id='blog')
		body = soup.find('div', id='browserMaster')

		if text == None:
			print "*** ERROR *** - NO TEXT"
		if body == None:
			print "*** ERROR *** - NO BODY"


		self.append_page(soup, soup.body, 10)

		return soup

	def postprocess_html(self, soup, first_fetch):
		movies = soup.findAll('div', attrs={'class':'egtv-video centre'})

		for movie in movies:
			preview = movie.find('img', attrs={'class':'screengrab'})
			frame = movie.find(attrs={'class':'frame'})

			if preview != None and frame != None:
				print "Missing parts in movie"
				print "frame = ", frame
				print "preview = ", preview
				print "movie = ", movie

		self.remove_item(soup, 'phat-footer')
		self.remove_item(soup, 'fb-root')
		self.remove_item(soup, 'facebook-like-button')

		return soup
(I should give credit to the original author of append_page routine, but I don't know who he is).
