    often safely offered in jest.  And I am sure that I never read any
    memorable news in a newspaper.  If we read of one man robbed, or
    murdered, or killed by accident, or one house burned, or one vessel
    wrecked, or one steamboat blown up, or one cow run over on the
    Western Railroad, or one mad dog killed, or one lot of grasshoppers
    in the winter -- we never need read of another.  One is enough.  If
    you are acquainted with the principle, what do you care for a myriad
    instances and applications?  To a philosopher all news, as it is
    called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over
    their tea.  Yet not a few are greedy after this gossip.  There was
    such a rush, as I hear, the other day at one of the offices to learn
    the foreign news by the last arrival, that several large squares of
    plate glass belonging to the establishment were broken by the
    pressure -- news which I seriously think a ready wit might write a
    twelve-month, or twelve years, beforehand with sufficient accuracy.
    

    methods

    var strip = require('strip-html');

    var stream = strip()

    Return a transform stream that takes html text as input and outputs plain text as output.

    Note that the output side might contain html entities because this module does not decode entities itself.

    usage

    This package also comes with a strip-html command:

    usage: strip-html {OPTIONS}
    
      -i, --infile   Read input from a file. Default: "-" (stdin)
      -o, --outfile  Write output to a file. Default: "-" (stdout)
      -h, --help     Show this message.
    
    

    install

    With npm do:

    npm install strip-html
    

    or to get the command, do:

    npm install strip-html -g
