I’ve been experimenting with Bayesian selection to gather news on http://nerdlynews.32hours.com for a while now. It works pretty well. I decided to have a try at using google trending to create a more ‘pop’ type of creation, just to see how well it would work. I’ve setup Timely, using Python3, Flask, and the help of Python modules newspaper3k and beautifulsoup. I’ve run into a problem with Flask khandling the launching of external processes, but a minor workaround of running the news gathering from cron as a direct call to my python methods is working now. Timely. The most popular, current news. Curated and gathered into one place for you.
