Cheerio library that makes core jQuery creeds to parse HTML to manipulate DOM data.
Cheerio works with a very reliable DOM model and ultimately parsing, manipulating, and rendering results are extremely efficient.
Cheerio can parse any type of HTML and XML document.
The jQuery API is very beneficial using standard CSS selectors for elements search and extracting data with readable API. JQuery is functioning only inside the browser and cannot scrape the web data. Cheerio resolves the problem by providing jQuery’s functionality within the Node.js runtime and it can be used in server-side applications.
Cheerio can’t access to the browser’s DOM unlike JQuery and as an alternative, the user has to load the source code of the website page to crawl. Cheerio loads HTML code as a string and returns an instance that is used just like jQuery.
