You can also add content to the end of tags:

>>> d = pq('<p class="hello" id="hello">you know Python rocks</p>')
>>> d('p').append(' check out <a href=""><span>reddit</span></a>')
>>> print d
<p class="hello" id="hello">you know Python rocks check out <a href=""><span>reddit</span></a></p>

Or to the beginning:

>>> p = d('p')
>>> p.prepend('check out <a href="">reddit</a>')
>>> p.html()
u'check out <a href="">reddit</a>you know ...'

Prepend or append an element into an other:

>>> d = pq('<html><body><div id="test"><a href="">python</a> !</div></body></html>')
>>> p.prependTo(d('#test'))
>>> d('#test').html()
u'<p class="hello" ...'

Insert an element after another:

>>> p.insertAfter(d('#test'))
>>> d('#test').html()
u'<a href="">python</a> !'

Or before:

>>> p.insertBefore(d('#test'))
>>> d('body').html()
u'<p class="hello" id="hello">...'

Doing something for each elements:

>>> p.each(lambda e: e.addClass('hello2'))

Remove an element:

>>> d = pq('<html><body><p id="id">Yeah!</p><p>python rocks !</p></div></html>')
>>> d.remove('p#id')
>>> d('p#id')

Remove what’s inside the selection:

>>> d('p').empty()

And you can get back the modified html:

>>> print d

You can generate html stuff:

>>> from pyquery import PyQuery as pq
>>> print pq('<div>Yeah !</div>').addClass('myclass') + pq('<b>cool</b>')
<div class="myclass">Yeah !</div><b>cool</b>
