Python wrapper for HTML Tidy (tidylib), compatible with Python 2 and 3

Project Description

0.2.0: Works on Windows! See documentation for available DLL download locations. Documentation rewritten and expanded.

PyTidyLib is a Python package that wraps the HTML Tidy library. This allows you, from Python code, to “fix” invalid (X)HTML markup. Some of the library’s many capabilities include:

  • Clean up unclosed tags and unescaped characters such as ampersands
  • Output HTML 4 or XHTML, strict or transitional, and add missing doctypes
  • Convert named entities to numeric entities, which can then be used in XML documents without an HTML doctype.
  • Clean up HTML from programs such as Word (to an extent)
  • Indent the output, including proper (i.e. no) indenting for pre elements, which some (X)HTML indenting code overlooks.

Small example of use

The following code cleans up an invalid HTML document and sets an option:

from tidylib import tidy_document
document, errors = tidy_document('''<p>f&otilde;o <img src="bar.jpg">''',
  options={'numeric-entities':1})
print document
print errors

Docs

Documentation is shipped with the source distribution and is available at the PyTidyLib web page.
