On Jan 2 2021, the newsrack service has been shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it was time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

This is an archive of previously crawled content that will be kept around for a few weeks.


Extras: RSS feeds for newspapers and magazines

In an attempt to support newspapers and magazines without RSS feeds, NewsRack works with site-specific crawlers to generate RSS feeds for a select few newspapers and magazines. These Newsrack-generated RSS feeds are then used by NewsRack to monitor those papers. Since these feeds are perhaps useful more widely, they are being provided on this page. As more crawlers are developed, this page will be updated.

NOTE: Feeds for Pioneer, New Indian Express, Business Standard, do not cover the entire site content -- only a subsection of the paper that is of interest to NewsRack.
