htmlcutstring 1.0

Python module which help to cut html string by keeping html tags as it is

Latest Version: 1.1

It is easy to extract an excerpt of a text string with a given length limit. But if you want to extract an excerpt from HTML, the tags that may exist in the text string make it more complicated.

This module provides a solution to extract excerpts from HTML documents with a given text length limit without counting the length of any HTML tags.

This package is used to cut the string which is having html tags. It does not count the html tags, it just count the string inside tags and keeps the tags as it is.

ex: If the string is “welcome to <b>Python World</b> <br/> Python is bla”. and If we want to cut the string of 16 charaters then output will be “welcome to <b>Python</b>”.

Here while cutting the string it keeps the tags for the cutting string and skip the rest and without distorbing the div structure.

USAGE1:

obj = HtmlCutString(“welcome to <b>Python World</b> <br/> Python is”,16)

newCutString = obj.cut()

USAGE2:
newCutString = cutHtmlString(“welcome to <b>Python World</b> <br/> Python is”,16)
