Description

ReadabilityKit helps you to extract a relevant preview (title, description, image and video) from the URL.

The extraction goal is to try and get the best extraction from the article for servicing applications that need to show a preview of a web URL along with an image. Comparison with other libraries available here and why you should use ReadabilityKit instead of SwiftLinkPreview here.

Inspired by snacktory and newspaper.
