LinqToHtml ReadMe

Description

LinqToHtml is a simple utility that lets you use LINQ syntax to query HTML.

Samples

const string html = @"
<html>
    <head>
        <TITLE>The Title</TITLE>
    </head>
    <body bgcolor='#ffffff'>
        <H1 id='hello' style='greeting' tabkey='1'>Hello</H1>
        <H2 id='world' style='greeting' tabkey='2'>World</H2>
    </body>
</html>";

var parsed = HTMLParser.Parse(html);

parsed
    .Head
    .Content
    .ShouldBeEqualTo("The Title");

parsed
    .ChildTags
    .Count()
    .ShouldBeEqualTo(2); // head, body

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .Count(x => x.Parent.TypeEqualsIgnoreCase("HTML"))
    .ShouldBeEqualTo(2); // head, body

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .OfType("title")
    .Any()
    .ShouldBeFalse();

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .OfType("title").IgnoreCase()
    .Any()
    .ShouldBeTrue();

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .OfType("title").IgnoreCase()
    .First()
    .Parent
    .TypeEqualsIgnoreCase("HEAD")
    .ShouldBeTrue();

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .WithAttributeNamed("style")
    .Count()
    .ShouldBeEqualTo(2); 

parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .WithAttributeNamed("id")
    .HavingValue("world")
    .First()
    .Content
    .ShouldBeEqualTo("World");

mapping

public class Text
{
    public string Id { get; set; }
    public int TabKey { get; set; } 
}

var text = new Text();
parsed
    .DescendantTags
    .OfType("H1")
    .First()
    .MapTo(text);

text.Id.ShouldBeEqualTo("hello");
text.TabKey.ShouldBeEqualTo(1);

note: the .Should... syntax comes from the FluentAssert library.

How To Build:

The build script requires Ruby with rake installed.

  1. Run InstallGems.bat to get the ruby dependencies (only needs to be run once per computer)
  2. open a command prompt to the root folder and type rake to execute rakefile.rb

If you do not have ruby:

  1. You need to create a src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs file. Go.bat will copy src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs.default to src\CommonAssemblyInfo.cs
  2. open src\StarterTree.sln with Visual Studio and build the solution
