|Short description||Xidel is a command line tool to download web pages and extract data from them.|
|Full description||Xidel can download files over http/s connections, follow redirections, links, or extracted values, and also process local files. The data can be extracted using XPath 2.0 expressions, CSS 3 selectors, and custom, pattern-matching templates that are like an annotated version of the processed page. The extracted values can then be exported as plain text/xml/json or assigned to variables to use in other extract expressions. There is also an online cgi service for testing.|
