Whacko is a fork of the cheerio that uses parse5 as an underlying platform.


$ npm install whacko


Difference with cheerio:

  • Use $.load(content) to load HTML documents (e.g. missing <html> tags will be automatically emitted in this case).
  • Use $(content) to create HTML-fragments which can be later added to the loaded document.

In all other aspects it is the same with the cheerio API.
