Fetch Hartford Courant based on Tribune recipe

I would like to fetch the Hartford Courant based on the recipe for the Chicago Tribune. (Both have similar Web sites, and the Courant is owned by the Tribune Co.) Is the recipe for the Chicago Tribune viewable? Has anyone tried to create a recipe for the Courant? Thanks for any help.

Consider sharing your recipe so others can use it as well.

Yes, of course, kovidgoyal. It works, but I might have overlooked some needed changes to the original Chicago Tribune recipe. Anyway, here it is. It's to fetch The Hartford Courant:

Code:
from __future__ import with_statement
__license__ = 'GPL 3'
__copyright__ = '2009, Kovid Goyal <kovid@kovidgoyal.net>'
__docformat__ = 'restructuredtext en'

class ChicagoTribune(BasicNewsRecipe):

    title       = 'The Hartford Courant'
    __author__  = 'Kovid Goyal and Sujata Raman'
    description = 'Politics, local and business news from Hartford'
    language = 'en'

    use_embedded_content    = False
    no_stylesheets        = True

                           ]
    remove_tags_after = [    {'class':['photo_article',]} ]

    remove_tags = [{'id':["moduleArticleTools","content-bottom","rail","articleRelates module","toolSet","relatedrailcontent","div-wrapper","beta","atp-comments","footer"]},

This recipe for The Hartford Courant is a little more complete, with the addition of national news, sports, etc. The user can edit it to their liking, adding more columnists, etc., by going to www.courant.com, clicking on RSS at the bottom, and getting the correct URL's for the RSS feeds to add. For example, Politics is included with this line:

('Politics', 'http://feeds.feedburner.com/courant-politics/'),

Here's the complete recipe:

Code:
from __future__ import with_statement
__license__ = 'GPL 3'
__copyright__ = '2009, Kovid Goyal <kovid@kovidgoyal.net>'
__docformat__ = 'restructuredtext en'

    language = 'en'

    use_embedded_content    = False
    no_stylesheets        = True
    remove_javascript = True

    keep_only_tags = [dict(name='div', attrs={'class':["story","entry-asset asset hentry"]}),

                           ]
    remove_tags_after = [    {'class':['photo_article',]} ]

    remove_tags = [{'id':["moduleArticleTools","content-bottom","rail","articleRelates module","toolSet","relatedrailcontent","div-wrapper","beta","atp-comments","footer"]},
                   {'class':["clearfix","relatedTitle","articleRelates module","asset-footer","tools","comments","featurePromo","featurePromo fp-topjobs brownBackground","clearfix fullSpan brownBackground","curvedContent"]},
