Flow action set-attributes

The set-attributes action is used to set attributes on DOM elements in the current fit://request/content.

Syntax

  • Either xpath="..." or css-selector="..." for selecting element nodes in the document (required).
  • in="..." to define the input location (optional, default is fit://request/content).
  • out="..." to define the output location (optional, default is fit://request/content).
  • other attributes: attributes to set on the elements selected by the expression in xpath.

Usage

The action reads the in content, changes the document by setting attributes on the elements selected by the given xpath or css-selector, and writes the changed document to out. Selected nodes that are not elements are ignored. All attributes specified on the set-attributes element except the xpath, css-selector, in and out attributes are set on the selected elements, overriding already existing attributes.

Check the css selector documentation for more information regarding support und utilization.

  <!-- set ai-scaling-width="50%" on all img elements -->
  <set-attributes xpath="//img" ai-scaling-width="50%"/>
  <!-- set ai-quality="30" on all img elements with class="lowq" -->
  <set-attributes xpath="//img[@class='lowq']" ai-quality="30"/>
  <!-- set class="myClass" and dir="rtl" on the p element with id="foo" -->
  <set-attributes xpath="//p[@id='foo']" class="myClass" dir="rtl"/>
  <set-attributes css-selector="div#myID div.myClass" new-attribute="myNew" /></flow>
