Whacko

Build Status npm

Whacko is a fork of cheerio that uses parse5 as an underlying platform.

Install

$ npm install whacko

API

Difference with cheerio:

  • Use $.load(content) to load HTML documents (e.g. missing <html> tags will be automatically emitted in this case).
  • Use $(content) to create HTML-fragments which can be later added to the loaded document.
  • Parser options (e.g. xmlMode and normalizeWhitespace) are missing since whacko is intended for spec compliant HTML parsing.
  • New parser option encodeEntities added. When false, it disables HTML entities decoding on serialization.
  • New parser option decodeHtmlEntities added. When false, it disables HTML entities decoding on parse.

In all other aspects it is the same with the cheerio API.
