XaviScript – Technologist & Human

Breathing in as programmer, breathing out as designer. Disruptive thinking!

This week I’ve worked in a little project where I need to get a website title and meta description to autofill the site details on a user’s favourite sites.

To achieve this, my site makes an HTTP request to a URL like “http://google.com” and return to the browser that site’s full HTML code which I filter to get the title and description.

I think it’s an useful script so I decided to share how I filtered the code, so here it is.

// 'response' is the HTTP request result and 'content'
// is the attribute containing the HTML code

//If you wanna find the title:


//If you wanna find the meta tag which contains site description: (jQuery)


Hope it helps someone! =)
