Node-Tree based data extraction
This Package contains a tool for extracting structured data from HTML and JSON pages. It reads the page into a Node based tree, from which you, on the bases of a json data-file, can extract your data into a list of items. It can first extract a list of keyNodes and extract for each of them the same data-list. During the extraction several data manipulation functions are available.
