Make any web page make sense.

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.

Mercury Web Parser API
Requests to the Parser API are signed by your API key, sent in the headers of your request under the key x-api-key. Be careful not to reveal this token; requests directly to the Parser API should not be made on the client device but rather proxied to keep the API token secure.
Quick Start
Here’s how to pull an article’s content from the Mercury Web Parser:
curl -H "x-api-key: <your-api-key>" "https://mercury.postlight.com/parser?url=https://trackchanges.postlight.com/building-awesome-cms-f034344d8ed"
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
