-pyquery: a jquery-like library for python
-pyquery allows you to make jquery queries on xml documents.
-The API is as much as possible the similar to jquery. pyquery uses lxml for fast
-xml and html manipulation.
-This is not (or at least not yet) a library to produce or interact with
-javascript code. I just liked the jquery API and I missed it in python so I
-told myself "Hey let's make jquery in python". This is the result.
-It can be used for many purposes, one idea that I might try in the future is to
-use it for templating with pure http templates that you modify using pyquery.
-I can also be used for web scrapping or for theming applications with
-The `project`_ is being actively developped on a mercurial repository on
-Bitbucket. I have the policy of giving push access to anyone who wants it
-and then to review what he does. So if you want to contribute just email me.
-Please report bugs on the `bitbucket
-<http://bitbucket.org/olauzanne/pyquery/issues?status=new&status=open>`_ issue

-You can use the PyQuery class to load an xml document from a string, a lxml
-document, from a file or from an url::
-    >>> from pyquery import PyQuery as pq
-    >>> from lxml import etree
-    >>> import urllib
-    >>> d = pq("<html></html>")
-    >>> d = pq(etree.fromstring("<html></html>"))
-    >>> d = pq(url='http://google.com/')
-    >>> # d = pq(url='http://google.com/', opener=lambda url: urllib.urlopen(url).read())
-    >>> d = pq(filename=path_to_html_file)
-Now d is like the $ in jquery::
-    >>> d("#hello")
-    [<p#hello.hello>]
-    >>> p = d("#hello")
-    >>> print(p.html())
-    Hello world !
-    >>> p.html("you know <a href='http://python.org/'>Python</a> rocks")
-    [<p#hello.hello>]
-    >>> print(p.html())
-    you know <a href="http://python.org/">Python</a> rocks
-    >>> print(p.text())
-    you know Python rocks
-You can use some of the pseudo classes that are available in jQuery but that
-are not standard in css such as :first :last :even :odd :eq :lt :gt :checked
-:selected :file::
-    >>> d('p:first')
-    [<p#hello.hello>]
