Python and BeautifulSoup4's BS4's Decompose Method To Remove Unwanted Inner Tags



< a href="/Products/MX72244">
< span class="c-shca-icon-item__body-name-brand">

ADATA
< / span>
XPG SX8200 PCI - E 3.0 x4 M .2 NVMe SSD, 480 GB
< / a>


The problem in the html above is that there is a "span" inside the "a" and this is unusual except for a few products with ADATA.
Otherwise it would print out ADATA with the other product information "XPG SX8200 PCI - E 3.0 x4 M .2 NVMe SSD, 480 GB". So we just want the product info and not the ADATA inside span.

The solution is to use beautifulsoup's "decompose method below".



hddname = prices.find("div", {"class": "c-shca-icon-item__body-name"})
hddname=hddname.find("a")
hddname.span.decompose()
hddname=hddname.get_text().strip()

Once we have the "a" tag contents which contain a "span inside". We just use the decompose() method.

The format is as follows

soupname.tagname.decompose()
