Python module which helps to cut HTML strings by keeping HTML tags as they are

Project description

This is repository is an improved version of htmlcutstring (https://code.google.com/p/cut-html-string/). I’m not the original author.

Differences between original

  1. htmlcutstr has availability to count words instead of characters

  2. It works fine on both Python 2.x and 3.x

Installation

Run ‘setup.py install’ to install this package.

Usage

cutHtmlString(string, limit, countType=’c’)

string is obviously the string you want to cut
limit maximum number of characters/words (depending on countType value) output string can have
countType can be equal to ‘c’ or ‘w’
‘c’ means ‘count by characters’
‘w’ means ‘count by words’.

Examples

from htmlcutstr import cutHtmlString

htmlstring = '<div>insert your <a>text</a> here</div>'

print(cutHtmlString(htmlstring, 10)) # '<div>insert you</div>'
print(cutHtmlString(htmlstring, 3, 'w')) # '<div>insert your <a>text</a></div>'
