Expand CSS selectors into PostHTML matcher objects

Version Build License Downloads

Introduction

This PostHTML plugin can turn simple CSS selectors into matcher objects.

Supported features:

  • Tags: "div" returns {tag: "div"}.
  • Ids: "#bar" returns {attrs: {id: "bar"}}.
  • Classes: .foo returns {attrs: { class: /(?:^|\s)foo(?:\\s|$)/ }}. Any number of classnames supported.
  • Attribute selectors: any number of standard attribute selectors can be used1 including the following non-standard:
    • [attr!=value]: matches attributes with values that do not contain value.
  • Multiple node selectors: "div, span" returns [{tag: "div"}, {tag: "span"}].

1 Multiple attribute selectors for the same attribute are not supported (this includes mixing classnames and attribute selectors matching class).

The basic template for selectors (and order of features) looks like this:

"tag#id.class.name[attr*=value][otherattr^='start']"

Basic usage

import matchHelper from "posthtml-match-helper";

tree.match(matchHelper("div.class"), function (node) {
  // do stuff with matched node...
});

Advanced usage

import matchHelper from "posthtml-match-helper";

tree.match(matchHelper("input.my-control[type!='radio'][checked], input[value^='foo'][checked]"), function (node) {
  // do stuff with node that matched either of the selectors...
});

Classnames with escaped characters

If you need to match nodes with classnames that use escaped characters, like those in Tailwind CSS utilities with arbitrary values, use the following syntax:

import matchHelper from "posthtml-match-helper";

tree.match(matchHelper("input.\\[display:none\\]"), function (node) {
  // do stuff with node that matched either of the selectors...
});

The helper function

Arguments

  • matcher (string) - A CSS selector that describes the node you want to match in PostHTML.

A matcher object or an array of matcher objects.
