Posted by Google, this pure-C HTML parser implements the HTML5 parsing algorithm as a C99 library with no outside dependencies. Tested on more than 2.5 billion pages from Google’s index, Gumbo is relatively lightweight and fully conformant with the HTML5 specification; boasts a simple API; and has support for source locations. Gumbo is designed to serve as a building block for other tools and libraries such as linters, validators, templating languages, and refactoring and analysis tools.
This Python (2 and 3) library posted by Steven Loria processes textual data to provide a simple API for diving into common natural language processing tasks, such as part-of-speech tagging, noun-phrase extraction, sentiment analysis and translation. Its other features include tokenization (splitting text into words and sentences), word and phrase frequencies, n-grams, word inflection, and JSON serialization. Not to mention TextBlob also has language translation and detection powered by Google Translate.
Bootstrap is a front-end CSS framework for faster and easier Web development, created and maintained by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton. It uses Grunt with convenient methods for working with the framework. Bootstrap includes a responsive, mobile-first fluid grid system that appropriately scales up to 12 columns as the device or viewport size increases. It includes predefined classes for easy layout options, as well as powerful mix-ins for generating more semantic layouts.
