HTML Parsing Macro things for Humans.

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/erinxocon/requests-html-macros.svg?branch=master https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/requests-html-macros.svg?maxAge=2592000 https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/requests-html-macros.svg?maxAge=2592000

Requests-Html-Macros is a little sugar on top of an already great html parseing library Requests-Html

This library aims to help make parsing the web a bit easier than it already is with Requests-Html! Create macros that can be reused over different web sites/sessions! Could you do this by hand with requests-html, yes probably pretty simply, but I only realized that liek half way through developing this library and then was just like screw it let’s push it out anyways!

Example

from time import sleep

from requests_html_macro import Macro
from requests_html import HTMLSession

# Create a standard requests-html session
session = HTMLSession()
response = session.get('http://python.org')

# Create a macro with the response
macro = Macro(response=response)

# Create a macro that uses the parse library to search through the html
@macro.search_pattern('Python is a {} language', first=True)
def foo(data):
    print(data[0])

# Creates a macro that uses a css selector
@macro.css_selector('#about', first=True)
def foo1(data):
    print(data.text)


@macro.xpath('//a', first=True)
def foo2(data):
    print(data)

while True:
    macro.parse()
    sleep(30)
    macro.response = session.get('http://python.org')
