postlightmercury: Parses Web Pages using Postlight Mercury

This is a wrapper for the Mercury Parser API. The Mercury Parser is a single API endpoint that takes a URL and gives you back the content reliably and easily. With just one API request, Mercury takes any web article and returns only the relevant content — headline, author, body text, relevant images and more — free from any clutter. It’s reliable, easy-to-use and free. See the webpage here: <>.
