Pathology - remedial XPath engine for Internet Explorer
I'm writing Terminus, a Capybara driver for real browsers. Capybara
uses XPath to select elements. Most browsers support the
method for querying the DOM with XPath. Some browsers (Internet Explorer,
Android) do not.
So here we are.
Pathology provides an ad-hoc, informally specified, bug-ridden, slow
implementation of half of
document.evaluate(). It works well enough to run the
entire Capybara test suite on my Android phone. It will likely remain incomplete
because frankly life is too short.
Building the library
git clone git://github.com/jcoglan/pathology.git cd pathology/ npm install ./node_modules/.bin/canopy source/pathology/xpath.peg gem install jake jake
