Parsel is a BSD-licensed Python library to extract and remove data from HTML and XML using XPath and CSS selectors, optionally combined with regular expressions.

Find the Parsel online documentation at https://parsel.readthedocs.org.

Example (open online demo):

>>> from parsel import Selector
>>> selector = Selector(text="""<html>
        <body>
            <h1>Hello, Parsel!</h1>
            <ul>
                <li><a href="http://example.com">Link 1</a></li>
                <li><a href="http://scrapy.org">Link 2</a></li>
            </ul>
        </body>
        </html>""")
>>> selector.css('h1::text').get()
'Hello, Parsel!'
>>> selector.xpath('//h1/text()').re(r'\w+')
['Hello', 'Parsel']
>>> for li in selector.css('ul > li'):
...     print(li.xpath('.//@href').get())
