The official Rust client for the Mercury Parser.

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.


The examples in this document assume you already have a Mercury Parser API key. If you do not already have one, you can sign up here.

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

futures = "0.1"
mercury = "0.1"
tokio-core = "0.1"

Add this to your main.rs:

extern crate futures;
extern crate mercury;
extern crate tokio_core;


// Create a new event loop with tokio.
let mut core = Core::new()?;

// Load your API key from the environment.
let key = env::var("MERCURY_API_KEY")?;

// Pass a handle to the event loop and the API key to the Mercury constructor.
let client = Mercury::new(&core.handle(), key)?;

// The parse method returns a Future that will resolve to a parsed Article.
let resp = client.parse("https://example.com").inspect(|article| {
    println!("{:#?}", article);

// Block the current thread until the future completes.

Additional examples can be found here.
