Event-driven HTML5 Parser in Javascript

README.md

HTML5 Parser for node.js

Example (With jQuery!)

        /* Before you run this, run:
              (cd deps/jquery; rake)
        */
        var  HTML5 = require('html5'),
            Script = process.binding('evals').Script,
              util = require('util'),
                fs = require('fs'),
             jsdom = require('jsdom'),
            window = jsdom.jsdom(null, null, {parser: HTML5}).createWindow()

        var parser = new HTML5.Parser({document: window.document});

        var inputfile = fs.readFileSync('doc/jquery-example.html');
        parser.parse(inputfile);

        jsdom.jQueryify(window, __dirname + '/deps/jquery/dist/jquery.js', function(window, jquery) {
                Script.runInNewContext('jQuery("p").append("<b>Hi!</b>")', window);
                util.puts(window.document.innerHTML);

        });

Interesting features

  • Streaming parser: You can pass parser.parse an EventEmitter and the parser will keep adding data as it's received.

  • HTML5 parsing algorithm. If you find something this can't parse, I'll want to know about it. It should make sense out of anything a browser can.

Installation

Use npm, or to use the git checkout, read on.

You'll need to fetch dependencies or initialize git submodules if you're pulling this from my git repository.

npm install

and give it a run:

npm test

(At time of this writing, 1800 tests pass)
