How to filter HTML tags and resolve entities using Python?

0 votes
Hello all. with regard to the above question - My concern is with the tags.

I know I can get away by making use of Regular Expressions. But, to be honest, I shy away from them because they overwhelm me. So coming to the question - I am trying to find the best way O could use to basically remove all of the HTML tags and later resolving the HTML entities in Python.

Note: Input is a string.

How can I go about doing this? All help appreciated!

Him the answer is a pretty simple one. 

Make use of lxml. This is one among the best HTML/XML libraries in Python.

Consider the following piece of code:

import lxml.html
t = lxml.html.fromstring("...")
t.text_content()

And also if you wish to sanitize the HTML code to look clean then make use of the following module:

module - lxml.html.clean

Hope this helped!
