What is Cheerio?

Cheerio is a quick and efficient jQuery implementation. It facilitates DOM traversal using a nice and well-known API and operates on both the server and the browser. It doesn't load any external resources or execute any Javascript in the document; it only parses the HTML and XML. When compared to full browser automation technologies like Puppeteer and Selenium, Cheerio is incredibly quick because of this. However, Cheerio is not the best solution for the job if a project calls for running Javascript on the page or running background XHR requests.
