    High-performance HTML5 parser for Ruby based on Lexbor, with support for both CSS selectors and XPath.


  • lexbor

    Lexbor is development of an open source HTML Renderer library.

    It supports both CSS selectors and XPath like Nokogiri, but with separate engines - parsing and CSS engine by Lexbor, XPath engine by libxml2. (Nokogiri internally converts CSS selectors to XPath syntax, and uses XPath engine for all searches).

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
