Summary: HTML/XML Parser for Quick-Turnaround Applications Like Screen-Scraping
Beautiful Soup is a Python HTML/XML parser designed for quick turnaround
projects like screen-scraping. Three features make it powerful:

* Beautiful Soup won't choke if you give it bad markup. It yields a parse tree
  that makes approximately as much sense as your original document. This is
  usually good enough to collect the data you need and run away

* Beautiful Soup provides a few simple methods and Pythonic idioms for
  navigating, searching, and modifying a parse tree: a toolkit for dissecting a
  document and extracting what you need. You don't have to create a custom
  parser for each application

* Beautiful Soup automatically converts incoming documents to Unicode and
  outgoing documents to UTF-8. You don't have to think about encodings, unless
  the document doesn't specify an encoding and Beautiful Soup can't autodetect
  one. Then you just have to specify the original encoding

Beautiful Soup parses anything you give it, and does the tree traversal stuff
for you. You can tell it "Find all the links", or "Find all the links of class
externalLink", or "Find all the links whose urls match "", or "Find the
table heading that's got bold text, then give me that text."

Valuable data that was once locked up in poorly-designed websites is now within
your reach. Projects that would have taken hours take only minutes with
Beautiful Soup.






* Wed Jan 01 2020
  - Update to 4.8.2
    * Added Python docstrings to all public methods of the most commonly
      used classes.
    * Fixed two deprecation warnings. Patches by Colin
      Watson and Nicholas Neumann. [bug=1847592] [bug=1855301]
    * The html.parser tree builder now correctly handles DOCTYPEs that are
      not uppercase. [bug=1848401]
    * now returns a ResultSet rather than a regular
      list, making it consistent with methods like find_all().
* Fri Nov 01 2019
  - Update to 4.8.1:
    * When the html.parser or html5lib parsers are in use, Beautiful Soup
      will, by default, record the position in the original document where
      each tag was encountered.
    * Fixed the definition of the default XML namespace when using
      lxml 4.4.
    * Avoid a crash when unpickling certain parse trees generated
      using html5lib on Python 3.
    * Avoid a crash when trying to detect the declared encoding of a
      Unicode document.
  - Drop patch beautifulsoup4-lxml-fixes.patch as it seems not needed
* Mon Oct 14 2019
  - Replace %fdupes -s with plain %fdupes; hardlinks are better.
* Mon Jul 22 2019
  - Update to 4.8.0
    * It's now possible to customize the TreeBuilder object by passing
      keyword arguments into the BeautifulSoup constructor. The main
      reason to do this right now is to change how which attributes are
      treated as multi-valued attributes (the way 'class' is treated by
      default). You can do this with the `multi_valued_attributes` argument.
    * The role of Formatter objects has been greatly expanded. The Formatter
      class now controls the following:
      > The function to call to perform entity substitution. (This was
      previously Formatter's only job.)
      > Which tags should be treated as containing CDATA and have their
      contents exempt from entity substitution.
      > The order in which a tag's attributes are output.
      > Whether or not to put a '/' inside a void element, e.g. '<br/>' vs '<br>'
      All preexisting code should work as before.
    * Added a new method to the API, Tag.smooth(), which consolidates
      multiple adjacent NavigableString elements.
    * &apos; (which is valid in XML, XHTML, and HTML 5, but not HTML 4) is now
      recognized as a named entity and converted to a single quote.
* Fri Mar 01 2019
  - Do not generate doc for py2 and py3 variant they are the same
    so keep just one around
  - Update to 4.7.1:
    * Fixed a significant performance problem introduced in 4.7.0. [bug=1810617]
    * Fixed an incorrectly raised exception when inserting a tag before or
      after an identical tag. [bug=1810692]
    * Beautiful Soup will no longer try to keep track of namespaces that
      are not defined with a prefix; this can confuse soupselect. [bug=1810680]
    * Tried even harder to avoid the deprecation warning originally fixed in
      4.6.1. [bug=1778909]
    * Beautiful Soup's CSS Selector implementation has been replaced by a
      dependency on Isaac Muse's SoupSieve project (the soupsieve package
      on PyPI). The good news is that SoupSieve has a much more robust and
      complete implementation of CSS selectors, resolving a large number
      of longstanding issues. The bad news is that from this point onward,
      SoupSieve must be installed if you want to use the select() method.
    * Added the PageElement.extend() method, which works like list.append().
    * PageElement.insert_before() and insert_after() now take a variable
      number of arguments. [bug=1514970]
    * Fix a number of problems with the tree builder that caused
      trees that were superficially okay, but which fell apart when bits
      were extracted. Patch by Isaac Muse. [bug=1782928,1809910]
    * Fixed a problem with the tree builder in which elements that
      contained no content (such as empty comments and all-whitespace
      elements) were not being treated as part of the tree. Patch by Isaac
      Muse. [bug=1798699]
    * Fixed a problem with multi-valued attributes where the value
      contained whitespace. Thanks to Jens Svalgaard for the
      fix. [bug=1787453]
    * Clarified ambiguous license statements in the source code. Beautiful
      Soup is released under the MIT license, and has been since 4.4.0.
* Thu Dec 06 2018
  - update to 4.6.3
    * Fix an exception when a custom formatter was asked to format
      a void element
* Sun Aug 05 2018
  - update to 4.6.1:
    * Stop data loss when encountering an empty numeric entity, and
      possibly in other cases.  Thanks to tos.kamiya for the fix. [bug=1698503]
    * Preserve XML namespaces introduced inside an XML document, not just
      the ones introduced at the top level. [bug=1718787]
    * Added a new formatter, "html5", which represents void elements
      as "<element>" rather than "<element/>".  [bug=1716272]
    * Fixed a problem where the html.parser tree builder interpreted
      a string like "&foo " as the character entity "&foo;"  [bug=1728706]
    * Correctly handle invalid HTML numeric character entities like &#147;
      which reference code points that are not Unicode code points. Note
      that this is only fixed when Beautiful Soup is used with the
      html.parser parser -- html5lib already worked and I couldn't fix it
      with lxml.  [bug=1782933]
    * Improved the warning given when no parser is specified. [bug=1780571]
    * When markup contains duplicate elements, a select() call that
      includes multiple match clauses will match all relevant
      elements. [bug=1770596]
    * Fixed code that was causing deprecation warnings in recent Python 3
      versions. Includes a patch from Ville Skyttä. [bug=1778909] [bug=1689496]
    * Fixed a Windows crash in diagnose() when checking whether a long
      markup string is a filename. [bug=1737121]
    * Stopped HTMLParser from raising an exception in very rare cases of
      bad markup. [bug=1708831]
    * Fixed a bug where find_all() was not working when asked to find a
      tag with a namespaced name in an XML document that was parsed as
      HTML. [bug=1723783]
    * You can get finer control over formatting by subclassing
      bs4.element.Formatter and passing a Formatter instance into (e.g.)
      encode(). [bug=1716272]
    * You can pass a dictionary of `attrs` into
      BeautifulSoup.new_tag. This makes it possible to create a tag with
      an attribute like 'name' that would otherwise be masked by another
      argument of new_tag. [bug=1779276]
    * Clarified the deprecation warning when accessing tag.fooTag, to cover
      the possibility that you might really have been looking for a tag
      called 'fooTag'.
* Mon Jul 16 2018
  - Clean SPEC file
    Use py.test for running the tests instead of nosetests, which
    breaks with python 3.7.
* Tue Mar 06 2018
  - Allows Recommends and Suggest in Fedora
* Tue Feb 27 2018
  - Recommends and Suggest are for SUSE
* Thu Aug 10 2017
  - Only Suggests python-html5lib and python-lxml (instead of Requires
    them). Both are not striclty needed. See
* Wed Jul 05 2017
  - update to 4.6.0:
    * Added the `Tag.get_attribute_list` method, which acts like `Tag.get` for
      getting the value of an attribute, but which always returns a list,
      whether or not the attribute is a multi-value attribute. [bug=1678589]
    * Improved the handling of empty-element tags like <br> when using the
      html.parser parser. [bug=1676935]
    * HTML parsers treat all HTML4 and HTML5 empty element tags (aka void
      element tags) correctly. [bug=1656909]
    * Namespace prefix is preserved when an XML tag is copied. Thanks
      to Vikas for a patch and test. [bug=1685172]
* Mon May 22 2017
  - Fixed failing tests in python3
* Sat Apr 08 2017
  - update to version 4.5.3:
    * Fixed foster parenting when html5lib is the tree builder. Thanks
      to Geoffrey Sneddon for a patch and test.
    * Fixed yet another problem that caused the html5lib tree builder to
      create a disconnected parse tree. [bug=1629825]
    changes from version 4.5.2:
    * Apart from the version number, this release is identical to
      4.5.3. Due to user error, it could not be completely uploaded to
      PyPI. Use 4.5.3 instead.
  - Converted to single-spec
* Thu Sep 01 2016
  - Relax BuildRequires for python-Sphinx
* Thu Sep 01 2016
  - update to 4.5.1:
    * Fixed a crash when passing Unicode markup that contained a
      processing instruction into the lxml HTML parser on Python
      3. [bug=1608048]
    * Beautiful Soup is no longer compatible with Python 2.6. This
      actually happened a few releases ago, but it's now official.
    * Beautiful Soup will now work with versions of html5lib greater than
      0.99999999. [bug=1603299]
    * If a search against each individual value of a multi-valued
      attribute fails, the search will be run one final time against the
      complete attribute value considered as a single string. That is, if
      a tag has class="foo bar" and neither "foo" nor "bar" matches, but
      "foo bar" does, the tag is now considered a match.
      This happened in previous versions, but only when the value being
      searched for was a string. Now it also works when that value is
      a regular expression, a list of strings, etc. [bug=1476868]
    * Fixed a bug that deranged the tree when a whitespace element was
      reparented into a tag that contained an identical whitespace
      element. [bug=1505351]
    * Added support for CSS selector values that contain quoted spaces,
      such as tag[style="display: foo"]. [bug=1540588]
    * Corrected handling of XML processing instructions. [bug=1504393]
    * Corrected an encoding error that happened when a BeautifulSoup
      object was copied. [bug=1554439]
    * The contents of <textarea> tags will no longer be modified when the
      tree is prettified. [bug=1555829]
    * When a BeautifulSoup object is pickled but its tree builder cannot
      be pickled, its .builder attribute is set to None instead of being
      destroyed. This avoids a performance problem once the object is
      unpickled. [bug=1523629]
    * Specify the file and line number when warning about a
      BeautifulSoup object being instantiated without a parser being
      specified. [bug=1574647]
    * The `limit` argument to `select()` now works correctly, though it's
      not implemented very efficiently. [bug=1520530]
    * Fixed a Python 3 ByteWarning when a URL was passed in as though it
      were markup. Thanks to James Salter for a patch and
      test. [bug=1533762]
    * We don't run the check for a filename passed in as markup if the
      'filename' contains a less-than character; the less-than character
      indicates it's most likely a very small document. [bug=1577864]
* Sun Nov 15 2015
  - Update to version 4.4.1
    * Fixed a bug that deranged the tree when part of it was
      removed. Thanks to Eric Weiser for the patch and John Wiseman for a
      test. lp#1481520
    * Fixed a parse bug with the html5lib tree-builder. Thanks to Roel
      Kramer for the patch. lp#1483781
    * Improved the implementation of CSS selector grouping. Thanks to
      Orangain for the patch. lp#1484543
    * Fixed the test_detect_utf8 test so that it works when chardet is
      installed. lp#1471359
    * Corrected the output of Declaration objects. lp#1477847
* Mon Jul 27 2015
  - update to 4.4.0
    Especially important changes:
    * Added a warning when you instantiate a BeautifulSoup object without
      explicitly naming a parser. [bug=1398866]
    * __repr__ now returns an ASCII bytestring in Python 2, and a Unicode
      string in Python 3, instead of a UTF8-encoded bytestring in both
      versions. In Python 3, __str__ now returns a Unicode string instead
      of a bytestring. [bug=1420131]
    * The `text` argument to the find_* methods is now called `string`,
      which is more accurate. `text` still works, but `string` is the
      argument described in the documentation. `text` may eventually
      change its meaning, but not for a very long time. [bug=1366856]
    * Changed the way soup objects work under copy.copy(). Copying a
      NavigableString or a Tag will give you a new NavigableString that's
      equal to the old one but not connected to the parse tree. Patch by
      Martijn Peters. [bug=1307490]
    * Started using a standard MIT license. [bug=1294662]
    * Added a Chinese translation of the documentation by Delong .w.
    New features:
    * Introduced the select_one() method, which uses a CSS selector but
      only returns the first match, instead of a list of
      matches. [bug=1349367]
    * You can now create a Tag object without specifying a
      TreeBuilder. Patch by Martijn Pieters. [bug=1307471]
    * You can now create a NavigableString or a subclass just by invoking
      the constructor. [bug=1294315]
    * Added an `exclude_encodings` argument to UnicodeDammit and to the
      Beautiful Soup constructor, which lets you prohibit the detection of
      an encoding that you know is wrong. [bug=1469408]
    * The select() method now supports selector grouping. Patch by
      Francisco Canas [bug=1191917]
    Bug fixes:
    * Fixed yet another problem that caused the html5lib tree builder to
      create a disconnected parse tree. [bug=1237763]
    * Force object_was_parsed() to keep the tree intact even when an element
      from later in the document is moved into place. [bug=1430633]
    * Fixed yet another bug that caused a disconnected tree when html5lib
      copied an element from one part of the tree to another. [bug=1270611]
    * Fixed a bug where Element.extract() could create an infinite loop in
      the remaining tree.
    * The select() method can now find tags whose names contain
      dashes. Patch by Francisco Canas. [bug=1276211]
    * The select() method can now find tags with attributes whose names
      contain dashes. Patch by Marek Kapolka. [bug=1304007]
    * Improved the lxml tree builder's handling of processing
      instructions. [bug=1294645]
    * Restored the helpful syntax error that happens when you try to
      import the Python 2 edition of Beautiful Soup under Python 3.
    * In Python 3.4 and above, set the new convert_charrefs argument to
      the html.parser constructor to avoid a warning and future
      failures. Patch by Stefano Revera. [bug=1375721]
    * The warning when you pass in a filename or URL as markup will now be
      displayed correctly even if the filename or URL is a Unicode
      string. [bug=1268888]
    * If the initial <html> tag contains a CDATA list attribute such as
      'class', the html5lib tree builder will now turn its value into a
      list, as it would with any other tag. [bug=1296481]
    * Fixed an import error in Python 3.5 caused by the removal of the
      HTMLParseError class. [bug=1420063]
    * Improved docstring for encode_contents() and
      decode_contents(). [bug=1441543]
    * Fixed a crash in Unicode, Dammit's encoding detector when the name
      of the encoding itself contained invalid bytes. [bug=1360913]
    * Improved the exception raised when you call .unwrap() or
      .replace_with() on an element that's not attached to a tree.
    * Raise a NotImplementedError whenever an unsupported CSS pseudoclass
      is used in select(). Previously some cases did not result in a
    * It's now possible to pickle a BeautifulSoup object no matter which
      tree builder was used to create it. However, the only tree builder
      that survives the pickling process is the HTMLParserTreeBuilder
      ('html.parser'). If you unpickle a BeautifulSoup object created with
      some other tree builder, soup.builder will be None. [bug=1231545]
  - Aligned requirement version with PyPI
* Fri Jul 24 2015
  - fix non-SUSE build by conditionalizing Recommends: tag
