parse5 is a Node.js library for parsing and manipulating HTML and XML documents. It is designed to be fast and flexible, and it is commonly used in web scraping and web development projects.

parse5 is used by popular libraries such as Angular, Lit, Cheerio and many more. Unlike Cheerio parse5 is a low level html parsing library that might be useful directly in web scraping without higher level abstraction.

untangle is a simple library for parsing XML documents in Python. It allows you to access data in an XML file as if it were a Python object, making it easy to work with the data in your code.

To use untangle, you first need to install it via pip by running pip install untangle``. Once it is installed, you can use theuntangle.parse()`` function to parse an XML file and create a Python object.

For example:

import untangle

obj = untangle.parse("example.xml")
print(obj.root.element.child)

You can also pass a file-like object or a string containing XML data to the untangle.parse() function. Once you have an untangle object, you can access elements in the XML document using dot notation.

You can also access the attributes of an element by using attrib property, eg. `obj.root.element['attrib_name']`` untangle also supports xpath-like syntax to access the elements, obj.root.xpath("path/to/element")

It also supports iteration over the elements using obj.root.element.children

for child in obj.root.element.children:
    print(child)

Example Use


const parse5 = require("parse5");

// parse string
const document = parse5.parse('<html><body>Hello World!</body></html>');
console.log(document);

// html tree can be traversed as javascript object:
const body = document.childNodes[1];
console.log(body.childNodes[0].value); // "Hello World!"

// and modified
const newElement = parse5.parseFragment('<p>New Element</p>');
body.appendChild(newElement.childNodes[0]);
console.log(parse5.serialize(document)); 
import untangle

obj = untangle.parse("example.xml")

print(obj.root.element.child)
# access attributes:
print(obj.root.element['attrib_name'])
# use xpath:
element = obj.root.xpath("path/to/element")
