Совсем недавно мы запустили бета-тестирование по заявкам. Решил рассказать про технические проблемы при извлечении статей, что происходит под капотом.
Artykul is an app that allows you to read your favorite sites in one place without ads, clutter, and algorithmic newsfeeds. I'm excited to announce the app is available on the App Store for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS!
We have been developing the app since March 2021. The first iteration worked on our servers, but we abandoned this decision and rewrote the backend and the client from scratch. The second iteration works on the device in your pocket.
You can add any website that has RSS or Atom feed. RSS is simple, open, and time-proven technology. You can take back control of your news feed. Unlike any other reader, Artykul uses RSS or Atom only for searching links, not content. In the future, we can add support for sites without feeds.
We developed the best-in-class Article Reader. And you can customize it: font, size, and color theme. All articles in Artykul are available offline. The reader also remembers a position where you stop reading.
One small surprise for developers is Artykul Instructions. It's a small JSON-based format that describes web pages and their content. With the help of instructions, developers can modify web pages before converting and provide more meta information from the page. Feel free to try it!
You can turn on push notifications for new articles from favorite sites. Our backend checks sites and notifies you when found something new.
We have implemented so many features and a million more well on the way. I can speak about the app all day. A picture is worth a thousand words, better try it yourself.
