EXPERIMENTAL! I am not entirely sure whether it is fully XML compliant.
This is a customized version of topfunky's Hpple.
- Easy searching by XPath
- Parses HTML and XML
- Easy access to tag content, name, and attributes via dot-notation
- Open your XCode project and the Hpple project.
- Drag the "Hpple" directory to your project.
- Add the libxml2.2.dylib framework to your project and search paths as described at Cocoa with Love
For usage only the following classes are needed:
See TFHppleHTMLTest.m in the Hpple project for samples.
#import "TFHpple.h" NSData * data = [NSData dataWithContentsOfFile:@"index.html"]; TFHpple * doc = [[TFHpple alloc] initWithHTMLData:data]; NSArray * elements = [doc search:@"//a[@class='sponsor']"]; TFHppleElement * element = [elements objectAtIndex:0]; e.content; // The text surounded by the tag e.name; // "a" e.attributes; // NSDictionary containing TFHppleElements for the attributes e.childNodes; // NSDictionary containing TFHppleElements for the childNodes // If you need the value of the href attribute you access it like this NSString * value = [e valueForKeyPath:@"attributes.href.content"];
