children generator – Python Beautifulsoup

  • Last Updated : 25 Oct, 2020

children generator is provided by Beautiful Soup which is a web scraping framework for Python. Web scraping is the process of extracting data from the website using automated tools to make the process faster. The children generator is used to iterate over the tag’s children. Each child is going to be the tag element.

Syntax: 

tag.children 

Below given examples explain the concept of children generator in Beautiful Soup. 
Example 1: In this example, we are going to get the children of elements.

Python3




# Import Beautiful Soup
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
  
# Create the document
doc = "<body><b> Hello world </b><body>"
  
# Initialize the object with the document
soup = BeautifulSoup(doc, "html.parser")
  
# Get the body tag
tag = soup.body
  
# Print the children of tag
for child in tag.children:
    print(child)

Output: 



<b> Hello world </b>
<body></body>

Example 2: In this example, we are going to see the type of children.

Python3




# Import Beautiful Soup
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
  
# Create the document
doc = "<body><b> Hello world </b><body>"
  
# Initialize the object with the document
soup = BeautifulSoup(doc, "html.parser")
  
# Get the body tag
tag = soup.body
  
# Print the type of children of tag
for child in tag.children:
    print(type(child))

Output: 

<class 'bs4.element.Tag'>
<class 'bs4.element.Tag'>
