|What's so unique about this news site?|
This Sri Lankan news website is completely
generated through a computer algorithm.
We have zero staff working on this. Its all automated by using the Kapruka news generator program (KNG).
|Word from the developer|
Kapruka news generator (KNG) engine was written using some underlying concepts of s-mail and an intelligent HTML parser written by me.
Here's KNG's process cycle.
1. Visits a news website (ie, dailynews.lk)
2. Recognize headlines and paragraphs (KNG does a lot of intelligent guess work here to do this) and saves that information to our local database with a date stamp.
3. Recognize cover page images and create thumbnails out of them.
4. In case of a Sinhala news source, render sinhala text into GIF image format using Kapruka s-mail API.
5. Generate the HTML code using the data we collected in steps 1-4. KNG repeats this cycle every 30 seconds.
Challenges I faced while developing KNG:
|Benefits to the original news sources|
clearly show the original news source with every headline. We divert all
our readers to the original news site if they wish to read the full story.
News websites benefits by receiving this traffic. We encourage Sinhala News
readers to install Sinhala fonts by showing them headlines without the need
for any special fonts. Sinhala news sources (ie..divaina.com, lakbima.com)
benefits from this. We have a high rank in google and other popular search
engines. Our links to any website will boost up their page ranks.
