[HTML] Python extracts HTML text to TXT

Regular debarking method

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import re

def html_tag_rm(content: str):
	dr = re.compile(r'<[^>]+>',re.S)
	return dr.sub('',content)

nltk

It’s cumbersome
needs to install nltk, numpy, pyyaml

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import nltk


def html_tag_rm(content: str):
	return nltk.clean_html(content)

htmlParser
