Upstream project description

hq reads HTML and converts it into a JSON object based on a series of CSS selectors. The selectors are expressed in a similar way to JSON, but where the values are CSS selectors. For example:

 {posts: .athing | [ {title: .titleline > a, url: .titleline > a | @(href)} ] }

This will select all .athing elements, and it will create an array (| [{...}]) of objects for each element selected. Then for each element it will select the text of the titleline > a element, and the href attribute (| @(href)).

The end result is the following structure:

 {
   "posts": [
     {
       "title": "...",
       "url": "..."
     }
   ]
 }
