Third-party helpers

The following third-party Python packages are not included in WebHelpers due to their size or dependencies, but are often used in WebHelpers applications.


A robust HTML/XML parser that can make sense of bad markup.


Clean up and pretty print HTML. This is a C library. There are several Python bindings to it.


Convert Unicode characters to ASCII equivalents. Accented letters and symbols are converted to a visual approximation, and non-Latin letters are converted to their standard Latin pronounciation. Several of the convert_\* functions in webhelpers.text will use Unidecode if it's installed.


An object-oriented alternative to the path functions in os, os.path, and shutil. Similar packages include path.py.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
