A script to extract first div with class of 'section' from HTML
Author: Sean Wallitsch
Python Versions: 2.6-2.7
A script to extract the first found <div class=’section’> from an HTML document, then save that extracted element to it’s own HTML file. Useful when including an HTML file in another document, when you don’t need all the header junk.
Developed for including Sphinx built HTML documentation in an Octopress blog.
dehead takes a glob style input parameter, and an optional output directory.
For example, this will dehead every HTML file in the current directory, and save it to the default output directory, dehead_output/
$ dehead './'
While this will save it in the sibling _docs directory:
$ dehead './' -d ../_docs/
dehead can be installed with pip:
$ pip install dehead
or by cloning the repository, and from the root directory calling:
$ python setup.py install
