Beautiful Soup Navigating Parse Tree by Going Sideways

Beautiful Soup Navigating Parse Tree by Going  Sideways

                    To  Navigate the parse tree we use the Tag object, NavigableString. we see how to get all tags between tags by going down In Article Beautiful Soup Navigating Parse Tree by Going Down. we can easily Navigate Parse Tree by going Up, using .parent and .parents attributes which helps to know parent tag or all parent tag of tag. we learn the Going up Navigation In Article Beautiful Soup Navigating Parse Tree by Going Up. Now we going to see how to navigate the parse tree by going sideways.
                           Suppose, tag1 contains various tags and you know one of them now you want to know the next or previous one! . until now we retrieve tag between tag and outside tag of tag i.e parent tag but don't know how to get the next tag of another tag. 
so, the following attribute help to Navigate sideways of Parse Tree:
  • next_siblings
  • previous_sibling
  • next_siblings
  • previous_siblings
let me create simple markup as following
markup = '''
<Head><title>Example of Paragraph tag</title></Head>  
<!-- It is a Paragraph tag for creating the paragraph -->   
<p><b> HTML </b> stands for <i> <u> Hyper Text Markup Language. </u> </i> It is used to create a web pages and applications. This language   
is easily understandable by the user and also be modifiable. It is actually a Markup language, hence it provides a flexible way for designing the  
web pages along with the text.   
HTML file is made up of different elements. <b> An element </b> is a collection of <i> start tag, end tag, attributes and the text between them</i>.   
<b> 'b' tag use for bold text</b><i>important note formatted with italic tag</i><strong>strong also use to important note</strong>

now import Beautiful Soup library,
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

# create BeautifulSoup object
soup = BeautifulSoup(markup,'lxml')


# let get the next sibling of tag b

stands for

#now retrieve the next sibling of b tag's next sibling

<i> <u> Hyper Text Markup Language. </u> </i>


# now retrieve the previous sibling of b  tag
# we can see in the above code before b tag there is no tag 
# return None


# let get the previous sibling of i to tag

stands for


# type of next_siblings
<class 'generator'>

# let know how many tags next to b tag
for i in soup.b.next_siblings:
stands for
<i> <u> Hyper Text Markup Language. </u> </i>
It is used to create a web pages and applications. This language
is easily understandable by the user and also be modifiable. It is actually a Markup language, hence it provides a flexible way for designing the
web pages along with the text.


# type of previous_sibling
<class 'generator'>

# let retrieve all previous tags of strong tag
for i in soup.strong.previous_siblings:
<i>important note formatted with italic tag</i>
<b> 'b' tag use for bold text</b>
