Build an Application to extract news from Google News Feed Using Python
  • Last Updated : 29 Dec, 2020

Prerequisite Python tkinter

In this article, we are going to write a python script to extract news articles from Google News Feed by using gnewsclient module and bind it with a GUI application. gnewsclient is a python client for Google News Feed. This API has to installed explicitly first in order to be used.

Installation

The following terminal command installs gnewsclient package along with all its required libraries. So, one just simply has to run this command in their terminal.

pip install gnewsclient

Using the module

  1. Import the gnewsclient module
  2. Create a NewsClient object and set current parameter settings
  3. Get news feed

Python3




# import module
from gnewsclient import gnewsclient
  
# declare a NewsClient object 
client = gnewsclient.NewsClient(language='hindi', location='india', topic='Business', max_results=5)
  
# get news feed
client.get_news()

Output:



Following code depicts how other factors like location, language and topic can be printed from information collected by this module:

Python3




import gnewsclient
from gnewsclient import gnewsclient
  
client = gnewsclient.NewsClient(language='hindi'
                                location='india'
                                topic='Business',
                                max_results=5)
  
# prints location
print("Location: \n",client.locations)
print()
  
# prints languages
print("Language \n",client.languages)
print()
  
# prints topics
print("Topic \n",client.topics)

Output:

Example:

Program 1:

Python3




from gnewsclient import gnewsclient
  
client = gnewsclient.NewsClient(language='english'
                                location='india'
                                topic='sports'
                                max_results=3)
  
news_list = client.get_news()
  
for item in news_list:
    print("Title : ", item['title'])
    print("Link : ", item['link'])
    print("")

Output:



Program 2: This code implements the methodology of program 1 in GUI.

Python3




# import modules
from tkinter import *
from gnewsclient import gnewsclient
  
# defined funtions
def news():
    client = gnewsclient.NewsClient(
        language=lang.get(), location=loc.get(), topic=top.get(), max_results=3)
    news_list = client.get_news()
    result_title.set(news_list[0]["title"] + "\n" +
                     news_list[1]["title"] + "\n" + news_list[2]["title"])
  
  
# tkinter object
master = Tk()
master.title("NEWS")
  
# background set to grey
master.configure(bg='light grey')
  
# Variable Classes in tkinter
result_title = StringVar()
result_link = StringVar()
  
# Creating label for each information
# name using widget Label
Label(master, text="Choose language :", bg="light grey").grid(row=0, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Choose Location :", bg="light grey").grid(row=1, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Choose Topic :", bg="light grey").grid(row=2, sticky=W)
  
  
lang = Entry(master)
lang.grid(row=0, column=1)
  
loc = Entry(master)
loc.grid(row=1, column=1)
  
top = Entry(master)
top.grid(row=2, column=1)
  
  
# Creating lebel for class variable
# name using widget Entry
Label(master, text="", textvariable=result_title,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=3, column=1, sticky=W)
  
# creating a button using the widget
# Button to call the submit function
Button(master, text="SHOW", command=news, bg="white").grid(row=1, column=3)
  
  
mainloop()
