cascadia is a library for Go that provides a CSS selector engine, allowing you to use CSS selectors to select elements from an HTML document.

It is built on top of the html package in the Go standard library, and provides a more efficient and powerful way to select elements from an HTML document.

html5-parser is a Python library for parsing HTML and XML documents.

A fast implementation of the HTML 5 parsing spec for Python. Parsing is done in C using a variant of the gumbo parser. The gumbo parse tree is then transformed into an lxml tree, also in C, yielding parse times that can be a thirtieth of the html5lib parse times. That is a speedup of 30x. This differs, for instance, from the gumbo python bindings, where the initial parsing is done in C but the transformation into the final tree is done in python.

It is built on top of the popular lxml library and provides a simple and intuitive API for working with the document's structure.

html5-parser uses the HTML5 parsing algorithm, which is more lenient and forgiving than the traditional XML-based parsing algorithm. This means that it can parse HTML documents with malformed or missing tags and still produce a usable parse tree.

To use html5-parser, you first need to install it via pip by running pip install html5-parser. Once it is installed, you can use the html5_parser.parse() function to parse an HTML document and create a parse tree. For example:

from html5_parser import parse

html_string = "<html><body>Hello, World!</body></html>"
root = parse(html_string)
print(root.tag) # html
You can also use `html5_parser.parse()`` with file-like objects, bytes or file paths.

Once you have a parse tree, you can use the find() and findall() methods to search for elements in the document similar to BeautifulSoup.

html5-parser also supports searching using xpath, similar to lxml.

Example Use


package main

import (
  "fmt"
  "github.com/andybalholm/cascadia"
  "golang.org/x/net/html"
  "strings"
)

func main() {
  // Create an HTML string
  html := `<html>
        <body>
          <div id="content">
            <p>Hello, World!</p>
            <a href="http://example.com">Example</a>
          </div>
        </body>
      </html>`

  // Parse the HTML string into a node tree
  doc, err := html.Parse(strings.NewReader(html))
  if err != nil {
    fmt.Println("Error:", err)
    return
  }

  // Compile the CSS selector
  sel, err := cascadia.Compile("p")
  if err != nil {
    fmt.Println("Error:", err)
    return
  }

  // Use the Selector.Match method to select elements from the document
  matches := sel.Match(doc)
  if len(matches) > 0 {
    fmt.Println(matches[0].FirstChild.Data)
    // > Hello, World!
  }
}
from html5_parser import parse

html_string = "<html><body>Hello, World!</body></html>"
root = parse(html_string)
print(root.tag) # html
body = root.find("body")
# or find all
print(body.text) # "Hello, World!"
for el in root.findall("p"):
    print(el.text) # "Hello
