A permissive, scalable HTML parser.
html-parser is intended as a permissive HTML parser for people who prefer the scalable interface described in Oleg Kiselyov's SSAX parser, as well as providing simple convenience utilities. It correctly handles all invalid HTML, inserting "virtual" starting and closing tags as needed to maintain the proper tree structure needed for the foldts down/up logic. A major goal of this parser is bug-for-bug compatibility with the way common web browsers parse HTML.
- (make-html-parser . keys) procedure
Returns a procedure of two arguments, an initial seed and an optional input port, which parses the HTML document from the port with the callbacks specified in the plist KEYS (using normal, quoted symbols, for portability and to avoid making this a macro). The following callbacks are recognized:
START: TAG ATTRS SEED VIRTUAL? fdown in foldts, called when a start-tag is encountered. TAG: tag name ATTRS: tag attributes as a alist SEED: current seed value VIRTUAL?: #t iff this start tag was inserted to fix the HTML tree
END: TAG ATTRS PARENT-SEED SEED VIRTUAL? fup in foldts, called when an end-tag is encountered. TAG: tag name ATTRS: tag attributes of the corresponding start tag PARENT-SEED: parent seed value (i.e. seed passed to the start tag) SEED: current seed value VIRTUAL?: #t iff this end tag was inserted to fix the HTML tree
TEXT: TEXT SEED fhere in foldts, called when any text is encountered. May be called multiple times between a start and end tag, so you need to string-append yourself if desired. TEXT: entity-decoded text SEED: current seed value
COMMENT: TEXT SEED fhere on comment data
DECL: NAME ATTRS SEED fhere on declaration data PROCESS: LIST SEED fhere on process-instruction data
In addition, entity-mappings may be overriden with the ENTITIES: keyword.
- (html->sxml [port]) procedure
Returns the SXML representation of the document from PORT, using the default parsing options.
- (html-strip [port]) procedure
Returns a string representation of the document from PORT with all tags removed. No whitespace reduction or other rendering is done.
This is the definition of the html->sxml convenience function included in the egg:
(define html->sxml (let ((parse (make-html-parser 'start: (lambda (tag attrs seed virtual?) '()) 'end: (lambda (tag attrs parent-seed seed virtual?) `((,tag ,@(if (pair? attrs) `((@ ,@attrs) ,@(reverse seed)) (reverse seed))) ,@parent-seed)) 'decl: (lambda (tag attrs seed) `((*DECL* ,tag ,@attrs) ,@seed)) 'process: (lambda (attrs seed) `((*PI* ,@attrs) ,@seed)) 'comment: (lambda (text seed) `((*COMMENT* ,text) ,@seed)) 'text: (lambda (text seed) (cons text seed)) ))) (lambda o (reverse (apply parse '() o)))))
The parser for html-strip could be defined as:
(make-html-parser 'start: (lambda (tag attrs seed virtual?) seed) 'end: (lambda (tag attrs parent-seed seed virtual?) seed) 'text: (lambda (text seed) (display text)))
