NewPipe Extractor

CI JIT Pack Badge JDocDocumentation

NewPipe Extractor is a library for extracting things from streaming sites. It is a core component of NewPipe, but could be used independently.

Usage

NewPipe Extractor is available at JitPack's Maven repo.

If you're using Gradle, you could add NewPipe Extractor as a dependency with the following steps:

  1. Add maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' } to the repositories in your build.gradle.
  2. Add implementation 'com.github.TeamNewPipe:NewPipeExtractor:INSERT_VERSION_HERE' to the dependencies in your build.gradle. Replace INSERT_VERSION_HERE with the latest release.
  3. If you are using tools to minimize your project, make sure to keep the files below, by e.g. adding the following lines to your proguard file:
## Rules for NewPipeExtractor
-keep class org.schabi.newpipe.extractor.timeago.patterns.** { *; }
-keep class org.mozilla.javascript.** { *; }
-keep class org.mozilla.classfile.ClassFileWriter
-dontwarn org.mozilla.javascript.tools.**

Note: To use NewPipe Extractor in Android projects with a minSdk below 26, API desugaring is required. If the minSdk is below 19, the desugar_jdk_libs_nio artifact is required, which requires Android Gradle Plugin (AGP) version 7.4.0.

Testing changes

To test changes quickly you can build the library locally. A good approach would be to add something like the following to your settings.gradle:

includeBuild('../NewPipeExtractor') {
    dependencySubstitution {
        substitute module('com.github.TeamNewPipe:NewPipeExtractor') with project(':extractor')
    }
}

Another approach would be to use the local Maven repository, here's a gist of how to use it:

  1. Add mavenLocal() in your project repositories list (usually as the first entry to give priority above the others).
  2. It's recommended that you change the version of this library (e.g. LOCAL_SNAPSHOT).
  3. Run gradle's ìnstall task to deploy this library to your local repository (using the wrapper, present in the root of this project: ./gradlew install)
  4. Change the dependency version used in your project to match the one you chose in step 2 (implementation 'com.github.TeamNewPipe:NewPipeExtractor:LOCAL_SNAPSHOT')

Tip for Android Studio users: After you make changes and run the install task, use the menu option File → "Sync with File System" to refresh the library in your project.
