    • parse

      public static Document parse​(String html, String baseUri)
      Parse HTML into a Document. The parser will make a sensible, balanced document tree out of any HTML.
      Parameters:
      html - HTML to parse
      baseUri - The URL where the HTML was retrieved from. Used to resolve relative URLs to absolute URLs, that occur before the HTML declares a <base href> tag.
      Returns:
      sane HTML
    • parse

      public static Document parse​(String html, String baseUri, Parser parser)
      Parse HTML into a Document, using the provided Parser. You can provide an alternate parser, such as a simple XML (non-HTML) parser.
      Parameters:
      html - HTML to parse
      baseUri - The URL where the HTML was retrieved from. Used to resolve relative URLs to absolute URLs, that occur before the HTML declares a <base href> tag.
      parser - alternate parser to use.
      Returns:
      sane HTML
    • parse

      public static Document parse​(String html, Parser parser)
      Parse HTML into a Document, using the provided Parser. You can provide an alternate parser, such as a simple XML (non-HTML) parser. As no base URI is specified, absolute URL resolution, if required, relies on the HTML including a <base href> tag.
      Parameters:
      html - HTML to parse before the HTML declares a <base href> tag.
      parser - alternate parser to use.
      Returns:
      sane HTML
    • parse

      public static Document parse​(String html)
      Parse HTML into a Document. As no base URI is specified, absolute URL resolution, if required, relies on the HTML including a <base href> tag.
      Parameters:
      html - HTML to parse
      Returns:
      sane HTML

      parse(String, String)
    • connect

      public static Connection connect​(String url)
      Creates a new Connection (session), with the defined request URL. Use to fetch and parse a HTML page.

      Use examples:

      • Document doc = Jsoup.connect("http://example.com").userAgent("Mozilla").data("name", "jsoup").get();
      • Document doc = Jsoup.connect("http://example.com").cookie("auth", "token").post();
      Parameters:
      url - URL to connect to. The protocol must be http or https.
      Returns:
      the connection. You can add data, cookies, and headers; set the user-agent, referrer, method; and then execute.
      See Also:
      newSession(), Connection.newRequest()
    • newSession

      public static Connection newSession()
      Creates a new Connection to use as a session. Connection settings (user-agent, timeouts, URL, etc), and cookies will be maintained for the session. Use examples:
      
      Connection session = Jsoup.newSession()
           .timeout(20 * 1000)
           .userAgent("FooBar 2000");
      
      Document doc1 = session.newRequest()
           .url("https://jsoup.org/").data("ref", "example")
           .get();
      Document doc2 = session.newRequest()
           .url("https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page")
           .get();
      Connection con3 = session.newRequest();
      

      For multi-threaded requests, it is safe to use this session between threads, but take care to call Connection.newRequest() per request and not share that instance between threads when executing or parsing.

      Returns:
      a connection

      Parameters:
      file - file to load HTML from. Supports gzipped files (ending in .z or .gz).

      Returns:
      sane HTML
      Throws:
      IOException - if the file could not be found, or read, or if the charsetName is invalid.

    • parse

      public static Document parse​(URL url, int timeoutMillis) throws IOException
      Fetch a URL, and parse it as HTML. Provided for compatibility; in most cases use connect(String) instead.

      The encoding character set is determined by the content-type header or http-equiv meta tag, or falls back to UTF-8.

      Parameters:
      url - URL to fetch (with a GET). The protocol must be http or https.
      timeoutMillis - Connection and read timeout, in milliseconds. If exceeded, IOException is thrown.
      Returns:
      The parsed HTML.
      Throws:
      MalformedURLException - if the request URL is not a HTTP or HTTPS URL, or is otherwise malformed
      HttpStatusException - if the response is not OK and HTTP response errors are not ignored

    • clean

      public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, String baseUri, Safelist safelist)
      Get safe HTML from untrusted input HTML, by parsing input HTML and filtering it through an allow-list of safe tags and attributes.
      Parameters:
      bodyHtml - input untrusted HTML (body fragment)
      baseUri - URL to resolve relative URLs against
      safelist - list of permitted HTML elements
      Returns:
      safe HTML (body fragment)
      See Also:
      Cleaner.clean(Document)
    • clean

      @Deprecated public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, String baseUri, Whitelist safelist)
      Deprecated.
      as of 1.14.1.
    • clean

      public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, Safelist safelist)
      Get safe HTML from untrusted input HTML, by parsing input HTML and filtering it through a safe-list of permitted tags and attributes.

      Note that as this method does not take a base href URL to resolve attributes with relative URLs against, those URLs will be removed, unless the input HTML contains a <base href> tag. If you wish to preserve those, use the clean(String html, String baseHref, Safelist) method instead, and enable Safelist.preserveRelativeLinks(boolean).

      Parameters:
      bodyHtml - input untrusted HTML (body fragment)
      safelist - list of permitted HTML elements
      Returns:
      safe HTML (body fragment)
      See Also:
      Cleaner.clean(Document)
    • clean

      @Deprecated public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, Whitelist safelist)
      Deprecated.
      as of 1.14.1.
    • clean

      public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, String baseUri, Safelist safelist, Document.OutputSettings outputSettings)
      Get safe HTML from untrusted input HTML, by parsing input HTML and filtering it through a safe-list of permitted tags and attributes.

      The HTML is treated as a body fragment; it's expected the cleaned HTML will be used within the body of an existing document. If you want to clean full documents, use Cleaner.clean(Document) instead, and add structural tags (html, head, body etc) to the safelist.

      Parameters:
      bodyHtml - input untrusted HTML (body fragment)
      baseUri - URL to resolve relative URLs against
      safelist - list of permitted HTML elements
      outputSettings - document output settings; use to control pretty-printing and entity escape modes
      Returns:
      safe HTML (body fragment)
      See Also:
      Cleaner.clean(Document)
    • clean

      @Deprecated public static String clean​(String bodyHtml, String baseUri, Whitelist safelist, Document.OutputSettings outputSettings)
      Deprecated.
      as of 1.14.1.
    • isValid

      public static boolean isValid​(String bodyHtml, Safelist safelist)
      Test if the input body HTML has only tags and attributes allowed by the Safelist. Useful for form validation.

      The input HTML should still be run through the cleaner to set up enforced attributes, and to tidy the output.

      Assumes the HTML is a body fragment (i.e. will be used in an existing HTML document body.)

      Parameters:
      bodyHtml - HTML to test
      safelist - safelist to test against
      Returns:
      true if no tags or attributes were removed; false otherwise

      clean(String, Safelist)

      @Deprecated public static boolean isValid​(String bodyHtml, Whitelist safelist)
