The goal of this project is to be a DOM-based drop-in replacement for PHP's simple html dom library.

How To Use - The same way as simple. If you use file/str_get_html then you don't need to change anything. If you are instantiating with new simple_html_dom() then you will need to change that to new AdvancedHtmlDom()

What's Different - Mostly just formatting (spaces) in the html. This is added by DOM and there's no way around it. Some non-standard selectors have been dropped but many more standard ones have been added. For example: img[src!=foo] was removed because it's not a valid selector. Added are things like a + b and a ~ b or even

What's Better

  • 10x-20x Performance increase
  • Reduced memory requirement
  • Support for many more css selectors


  • Supports full set of css pseudo selectors plus many jquery extras: :not, :has, :contains, :gt, :lt, :eq
  • Use with css or xpath: $doc->find('h3 a'), $doc->find('//h3//a')
  • Jquery-style functions replace, wrap, unwrap, before after
  • Nodeset math: $doc->find('a')->minus($doc->find('.skip_me'))
  • Lots of stuff that even BeautifulSoup and Nokogiri can't do: $doc->search('span:lt(7):not(.foo)')
  • Lots more features that haven't been documented yet.
