  • Is this your html, or are you scraping someone else’s html?

    If it’s yours, organize your html differently… if you know you want to
    be processing a section at a time, wrap those sections with an
    identifiable container, then scope your searches by the container.

    blah

  • a
  • b
  • blah2

  • c
  • d
  • (doc/“div”).each do |dv|
    this_h3 = (dv/“h3”)
    if this_h3.inner_html == “blah2”
    (dv/“li”).each do |li|
    puts li.inner_html
    end
    end
    end

    emits just c, and d

    If its someone else’s html in that format, you’ll probably have to go
    elem by elem for the whole doc with state machine-ish code to track what
    you’ve seen previously since there doesn’t seem to be any real ‘path’ to
    the li’s per h3.

    Ya I am scraping someone html so that i cant change the format right.
    can u help me .

    Your html is still flat, so you have to work with the patterns that you
    see.
    You have:
    span
    li
    li
    li
    span
    li
    li
    li
    etc…

    An ugly, brute force, one case solution is to:

    read the page with Hpricot
    remove the header
    convert it to a simple string representation
    stick your opening tag ‘’ at the head
    stick your closing tag and a div end ‘’ at the tail
    change all ‘’ to ‘


    doctor up the new head from ‘
    ’ to just ‘

    re-create your Hproicot doc from the modified string

    which takes about 8 lines of code.

    YMMV

    Please don’t top post, it annoys readers on this list and makes it
    less likely that you will get help.

    I have not used hpricot but if I were in your situation the first
    thing I would do is carefully look through the documentation for
    hpricot. Have you done that?
