gazpacho is a Python library for scraping web pages. It is designed to make it easy to extract information from a web page by providing a simple and intuitive API for working with the page's structure.

gazpacho uses the requests library to download the page and the lxml library to parse the HTML or XML code. It provides a way to search for elements in the page using CSS selectors, similar to BeautifulSoup.

To use gazpacho, you first need to install it via pip by running pip install gazpacho. Once it is installed, you can use the gazpacho.get() function to download a web page and create a gazpacho object. For example:

from gazpacho import get, Soup

url = "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_scraping"
html = get(url)
soup = Soup(html)
print(soup.find('title').text)
You can also use gazpacho.get() with file-like objects, bytes or file paths.

Once you have a gazpacho object, you can use the find() and find_all() methods to search for elements in the page using CSS selectors, similar to BeautifulSoup.

gazpacho also supports searching using the select() method, which returns the first matching element, and the select_all() method, which returns all matching elements.

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


from gazpacho import get, Soup

# gazpacho can retrieve web pages
url = "https://webscraping.fyi/"
html = get(url)
# and parse them:
soup = Soup(html)
print(soup.find('title').text)

# search for elements like beautifulsoup:
body = soup.find("div", {"class":"item"})
print(body.text)
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")
