methods

var trumpet = require('trumpet')

var tr = trumpet(opts)

Create a new trumpet stream. This stream is readable and writable. Pipe an html stream into tr and get back a transformed html stream.

Parse errors are emitted by tr in an 'error' event.

var elem = tr.select(selector)

Return a result object elem for the first element matching selector.

tr.selectAll(selector, function (elem) {})

Get a result object elem for every element matching selector.

elem.getAttribute(name, cb)

When the selector for elem matches, query the case-insensitive attribute called name with cb(value).

elem.setAttribute(name, value)

When the selector for elem matches, replace the case-insensitive attribute called name with value.

If the attribute doesn't exist, it will be created in the output stream.

elem.removeAttribute(name)

When the selector for elem matches, remove the attribute called name if it exists.

elem.createReadStream(opts)

Create a new readable stream with the inner html content under elem.

To use the outer html content instead of the inner, set opts.outer to true.

elem.createWriteStream(opts)

Create a new write stream to replace the inner html content under elem.

To use the outer html content instead of the inner, set opts.outer to true.

elem.createStream(opts)

Create a new readable writable stream that outputs the content under elem and replaces the content with the data written to it.

To use the outer html content instead of the inner, set opts.outer to true.

tr.createStream(sel, opts)

Short-hand for tr.select(sel).createStream(opts).

tr.createReadStream(sel, opts)

Short-hand for tr.select(sel).createReadStream(opts).

tr.createWriteStream(sel, opts)

Short-hand for tr.select(sel).createWriteStream(opts).

selector syntax

Presently these css selectors work:

  • *
  • E
  • E F
  • E > F
  • E + F
  • E.class
  • E#id
  • E[attr=value]
  • E[attr~=search]
  • E[attr|=prefix]
  • E[attr^=prefix]
  • E[attr$=suffix]
  • E[attr*=search]
