Converting an html dl (delimited list) on a page to a table from the Chrome console

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/14

A while ago, I wanted to convert the dl delimited list html element on a web page into a regular table so I could more easily reorder the data into cells.

So I ran the below bit of code in the Chrome Console after first putting the mentioned table with id here_table in the place where I wanted the table to be included:

<table id="here_table"></table>

view raw


hosted with ❤ by GitHub

var arr = $("#delimitedList").children().map(function () {
return $(this).html();
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i += 2) {
$('#here_table').append('<tr><td>' + arr[i] + '</td><td>' + arr[i + 1] + '</td></tr>');

For this script to work, you need jQuery, so yesterday I wrote Better, Stronger, Safer jQuerify Bookmarklet | Learning jQuery.

The code is based on [Wayback/] Rebuild each definition list () as a table using JQuery – Stack Overflow (thanks [Wayback/] easy!) with an important adoption instead of calling text() to get the textual dt and dd information, it uses html() so the original innerHTML is being preserved.

Some similar JavaScript pieces of code are at [Wayback/] Turning HTML into a nested JavaScript array with jQuery – Stack Overflow.
