    I've been working on gazpacho [1] for last two years.

    It's a general purpose web scraping library for Python that replaces BeautifulSoup + requests for most projects.

    Just surpassed ~2K downloads every week!

  • Like JQ, but for HTML

    xmlstarlet is really nothing like jq, as a language. But yes, I use it because it is the best commandline xml processor I'd found. That's the only similarity to jq.

    Is this the yq? https://kislyuk.github.io/yq/ It does contain an 'xq', as a literal wrapper for jq, piping output into it after transcoding XML to JSON using xmltodict https://github.com/martinblech/xmltodict (which explodes xml into separate JSON data structures).

    This is a bash one-liner! But TBF it really is a 'jq for xml'. I think it would be horrible for some things, but you could also do a lot of useful things painlessly.

  • Parsing unknown XML file with Python?
  • I used raw data from my watch (and Python) to make a map of all the NH48 hikes from this year. I hiked Liberty and Flume before I got the watch in June, so I need to do those again! Color-coded by altitude.
