ANN: HandsomeSoup-0.3: CSS selectors for HXT

aditya bhargava

Blurb:

HandsomeSoup is the library I wish I had when I started parsing HTML in Haskell.
It is built on top of HXT and adds a few functions that make is easier to work with HTML.
Most importantly, it adds CSS selectors to HXT. The goal of HandsomeSoup is to be a complete CSS2 parser for HXT (it is very close to this right now).

Why do you make your own overlay to download files via HTTP?
HXT has backends (hxt-http or hxt-curl) to do that.

Because I had the methods written for network and http already (this is just old code of mine I'm open-sourcing), and I didn't want to bother with reading the source for hxt-curl or hxt-http (since neither has documentation and I'm not convinced that they can do exactly what I want).

If you feel strongly about hxt-curl or hxt-http I would love to hear why! I'm not opposed to using those instead.
