Since the launch of our new parser in January, we’ve gotten lots of inquiries from developers about using our parser for third-party applications. With the new Instaparser API, app developers can use our parsing tools to provide users with a lightning-fast browsing experience optimized for mobile devices. Data scientists can use the tools to normalize input for text analysis. And hackers can do, well, whatever hackers might like to do with lightning-fast access to clean, standardized web page data.
When I ran Instapaper, I always got tons of requests for this. There are very few article-parsing services and software packages out there, and even fewer that work reliably with modern web design.
Instapaper’s new parser is the best I’ve seen, and now anyone can use it. Powerful.
