Build Status

Fast HTML5 Parser with CSS selectors (based on lexborisov's HTML5 parser lexbor). This is successor of myhtml and expected to be faster and use less memory. Usage is almost equal to myhtml.

    github: kostya/lexbor

Usage example

require "lexbor"

html = <<-HTML
  <html>
    <body>
      <div id="t1" class="red">
        <a href="/#">O_o</a>
      </div>
      <div id="t2"></div>
    </body>
  </html>
HTML

lexbor = Lexbor::Parser.new(html)

lexbor.nodes(:div).each do |node|
  id = node["id"]?

  if first_link = node.scope.nodes(:a).first?
    href = first_link["href"]?
    link_text = first_link.inner_text

    puts "div with id #{id} have link [#{link_text}](#{href})"
  else
    puts "div with id #{id} have no links"
  end
end

# Output:
#   div with id t1 have link [O_o](/#)
#   div with id t2 have no links
