This is a sample-project that demonstrates the use of a custom parser (html_table_parser.js) within a news template (news.svg) to display the data from a table included into an HTML page (sample.html).
- The data returned by the custom parser is displayed within the news template using [SPX] placeholders named as: [SPX][c1], [SPX][c2], [SPX][c3] etc.
- Only the first table from the HTML page is retrieved.
- The parser cannot interpret data spanning over multiple columns or rows as in the original table.
- It can be used as-is with some data feeds (e.g. some train or flight times which are not in XML) but will likely need further customization if pulling a table embedded within a complex page is necessary.
