# Funchaku

[![Deps Status](](

Funchaku is an Elixir client for the [Nu HTML Checker]( It lets you easily check HTML markup of web pages, by querying a remote instance of the checker.

## Installation

If [available in Hex](, the package can be installed as:

  1. Add funchaku to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

        def deps do
          [{:funchaku, "~> 0.3.0"}]

  2. Ensure funchaku is started before your application:

        def application do
          [applications: [:funchaku]]

## Usage

To check HTML on a web page, just pass it the URL to check, like this:

{ status, results } = Funchaku.check("")

You can also validate HTML passing directly the text, like this:

{ status, results } = Funchaku.check_text """
  <!DOCTYPE html>

Validation messages can be accessed like this:


# [%{"extract" => " href=\"/\"><img\n src=\"/images/fire.png\" align=\"absmiddle\"",
#    "firstColumn" => 37,
#    "firstLine" => 55,
#    "hiliteLength" => 69,
#    "hiliteStart" => 10, "lastColumn" => 64, "lastLine" => 56,
#    "message" => "The “align” attribute on the “img” element is obsolete. Use CSS instead.",
#    "type" => "error"}]

The `results[:messages]` list contains all messages returned by the checker, but you'll typically be more interested in `results[:errors]` (that contains all messages of type "error") and `results[:warnings]` (that contains all messages of subtype "warning"), and also in `results[:non_document_errors]` where you'll find errors related to 404s, misbehaving servers, etc.

## Using an alternate server

By default, Funchaku will query the Nu HTML Checker at but you're encouraged to install your own instance and use it instead. You can follow the [Nu installation instructions]( and then specify the alternate server like this:

Funchaku.check("", checker_url: "")
