Smile Quanta Magazine Recipe for Calibre

Hello and welcome, I am new :-)

I came here while looking for a recipe for calibre to get the Quantamagazine into Calibre and then on my Kindle for easy reading. (www.quantamagazine.org)

I was wondering if maybe someone here has already done such a recipe or could potentially point me to a direction where I could find one.

Thank you!

Adding news sources is explained in the User's Manual here https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/news.html. Since this site provides a news feed with full content it is fairly easy to add. The link they provide for the news feed is https://api.quantamagazine.org/feed/.

You should end up with a recipe looking something like this:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python2
# vim:fileencoding=utf-8
from __future__ import unicode_literals, division, absolute_import, print_function
from calibre.web.feeds.news import BasicNewsRecipe

class Quanta(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = 'Quanta Magazine'
    oldest_article = 7
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    language = 'en'
    encoding = 'UTF-8'

    feeds          = [
        ('Articles', 'https://api.quantamagazine.org/feed/'),
    ]

Thank you lui1, that worked like a charm! I've never worked or used RSS feeds (or any news feeds) but wanted to get something for my father in law who loves reading these types of articles, but is old fashioned and prefers paper. Now, thanks to your help, I have a way of creating a PDF file once a month, and get it nicely printed with some of those online services and send it to him as a written magazine! So thank you!
