Extract the article title of a HTML document

It's often quite hard to get the actual title of an article from a page as authors either add a bunch of trash to <title> or don't use it at all. There's also no standardized way to indicate the title of an article in the markup. This module uses various ways for extracting it cleanly.

$ npm install --save article-title
var articleTitle = require('article-title');
var htmlDocument = '<!doctype html><html><head><title>My awesome unicorn website</title></head><body><article><h1>How unicorns sleep</h1><p>...</p></body></html>';
 
articleTitle(htmlDocument);
//=> How unicorns sleep 
$ npm install --global article-title
$ article-title --help
