soup is a Go library for parsing and querying HTML documents.

It provides a simple and intuitive interface for extracting information from HTML pages. It's inspired by popular Python web scraping library BeautifulSoup and shares similar use API implementing functions like Find and FindAll.

soup can also use go's built-in http client to download HTML content.

Note that unlike beautifulsoup, soup does not support CSS selectors or XPath.

PHP library to get information from any web page (using oembed, opengraph, twitter-cards, scrapping the html, etc). It's compatible with any web service (youtube, vimeo, flickr, instagram, etc) and has adapters to some sites like (archive.org, github, facebook, etc).

Example Use


package main

import (
  "fmt"
  "log"

  "github.com/anaskhan96/soup"
)

func main() {

  url := "https://www.bing.com/search?q=weather+Toronto"

  # soup has basic HTTP client though it's not recommended for scraping:
  resp, err := soup.Get(url)
  if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
  }

  # create soup object from HTML
  doc := soup.HTMLParse(resp)

  # html elements can be found using Find or FindStrict methods:
  # in this case find <div> elements where "class" attribute matches some values:
  grid := doc.FindStrict("div", "class", "b_antiTopBleed b_antiSideBleed b_antiBottomBleed")
  # note: to find all elements FindAll() method can be used the same way

  # elements can be further searched for descendents:
  heading := grid.Find("div", "class", "wtr_titleCtrn").Find("div").Text()
  conditions := grid.Find("div", "class", "wtr_condition")
  primaryCondition := conditions.Find("div")
  secondaryCondition := primaryCondition.FindNextElementSibling()
  temp := primaryCondition.Find("div", "class", "wtr_condiTemp").Find("div").Text()
  others := primaryCondition.Find("div", "class", "wtr_condiAttribs").FindAll("div")
  caption := secondaryCondition.Find("div").Text()

  fmt.Println("City Name : " + heading)
  fmt.Println("Temperature : " + temp + "˚C")
  for _, i := range others {
    fmt.Println(i.Text())
  }
  fmt.Println(caption)
}
