Piculet is a module for extracting data from XML or HTML documents using XPath queries. It consists of a single source file with no dependencies other than the standard library, which makes it very easy to integrate into applications. It also provides a command line interface.

Getting started

Piculet has been tested with Python 3.5+ and compatible versions of PyPy. You can install the latest version using pip:

pip install piculet

Installing Piculet creates a script named piculet which can be used to invoke the command line interface:

$ piculet -h
usage: piculet [-h] [--version] [--html] (-s SPEC | --h2x)

For example, say you want to extract some data from the file shining.html. An example specification is given in movie.json. Download both of these files and run the command:

$ cat shining.html | piculet -s movie.json
