although I don't follow the need to have what appears to be two completely separate HTML parsing C libraries as dependencies; seeing this in the readme for Modest gives me the shivers because lxml has _seen some shit_
> Modest is a fast HTML renderer implemented as a pure C99 library with no outside dependencies.
although its other dep seems much more cognizant about the HTML5 standard, for whatever that's worth: https://github.com/lexbor/lexbor#lexbor
> It looks like the author of the article just googled some libraries for each language and didn't research the topic
Heh, oh, new to the Internet, are you? :-D

Nope, sorry, it's just an XML generator. The Python stdlib offers https://docs.python.org/3/library/xml.etree.elementtree.html and PyPI offers https://github.com/martinblech/xmltodict for parsing, and you could write CSV with csvwriter or pandas.
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.
