cheerio is a popular JavaScript library that allows you to interact with and manipulate HTML and XML documents in a similar way to how you would with jQuery in a browser. It is a fast, flexible, and lean implementation of core jQuery designed specifically for the server.

One of the main benefits of using cheerio is that it allows you to use jQuery-like syntax to navigate and m anipulate the Document Object Model (DOM) of an HTML or XML document, making it easy to work with.

cheerio supports CSS selectors though not 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


const cheerio = require('cheerio');
const $ = cheerio.load('<html><head><title>My title</title></head><body><h1 class='name'>Hello World!</h1></body></html>');
// use css selectors
console.log($('title').text()); // My title
console.log($('.name').text()); // Hello World!

// select multiple elements
const $ = cheerio.load('<html><body><ul><li>item 1</li><li>item 2</li></ul></body></html>');
$('li').each(function(i, elem) {
  console.log($(this).text());
});

// modify elements
const $ = cheerio.load('<html><body><h1>Hello World!</h1></body></html>');
$('h1').text('Hello, Cheerio!');
console.log($.html());
