W3C services for python.

Project description

pip install py_w3c

1. As library -

# import HTML validator
from py_w3c.validators.html.validator import HTMLValidator

# create validator instance
vld = HTMLValidator()

# validate

# look for errors
print(vld.errors) # list with dicts

# look for warnings

There are 3 methods of validating:
1. validate url - HTMLValidator().validate(url)
2. validate file - HTMLValidator().validate_file(filename_or_file) # StringIO aware.
3. validate fragment - HTMLValidator().validate_fragment(fragment_string)

You can pass charset while creating validator instance. This will force validator to use passed charset for validation.
Example (python).
vld = HTMLValidator(charset='utf-8')

# now validator uses utf-8 charset ignoring charset in the document content

2. As standalone script - (not very usefull right now)
Now only URL validating is allowed for standalone script.
$ w3c_validate
Prints warnings and errors to the console.

Running tests.
$ python test
This command will install tox and run tests for py2.7 and py3.4.

To run test for one python version use (py2.7 for example):
$ python test -a "-epy27"
