Dominate: Manipulate HTML DOM using Python

Dominate: Manipulate HTML DOM using Python

This is a talk I gave in March 2014 which I never got around to doing a blog post for.

Dominate is : “a Python library for creating and manipulating HTML documents using an elegant DOM API” .

There’s a part of me which deep down feels that using templates is “wrong” and that procedural processing is the way to go … it might be a deluded part of me but it is a part of me ! Anyway as a result when I read about Dominate I had to give it a spin.

I gave a talk to the Wellington branch of the New Zealand Python User group and the slides are here : https://s3.amazonaws.com/shearichard/dominate-demo-NZPUG-2014-March.pdf . They are really very simple examples but, I hope, instructive.

As part of that I put my examples up on Bitbucket and they’re available here : https://bitbucket.org/rshea/nzpug201403/src
