TraversingΒΆ

Some jQuery traversal methods are supported. Here are a few examples.

You can filter the selection list using a string selector:

>>> d = pq('<p id="hello" class="hello"><a/></p><p id="test"><a/></p>')
>>> d('p').filter('.hello')
[<p#hello.hello>]

It is possible to select a single element with eq:

>>> d('p').eq(0)
[<p#hello.hello>]

You can find nested elements:

>>> d('p').find('a')
[<a>, <a>]
>>> d('p').eq(1).find('a')
[<a>]

Breaking out of a level of traversal is also supported using end:

>>> d('p').find('a').end()
[<p#hello.hello>, <p#test>]
>>> d('p').eq(0).end()
[<p#hello.hello>, <p#test>]
>>> d('p').filter(lambda i: i == 1).end()
[<p#hello.hello>, <p#test>]

If you want to select a dotted id you need to escape the dot:

>>> d = pq('<p id="hello.you"><a/></p><p id="test"><a/></p>')
>>> d('#hello\.you')
[<p#hello.you>]
