Jquery - ¿recortar HTML interno?

I somehow need to trim() the innerHTML of my content... so I have something like this:


123 lol

I basically want to rid of the white space that is ONLY between <div> y el siguiente personaje, and the white space just before the closing </div>.

So the outcome would be:


123 lol</div>

Why? That's a sort of odd thing to need. -

@jjj $.trim is no a good option for manipulating the DOM. -

var $mydiv = $('#mydiv');

This should take the contents any element, trim the whitespace from it and reset it as the content.

You may be able to drill into the DOM and find whitespace text nodes and remove them more manually. But jQuery won't help there, and I have no idea how to do that. - Alex Wayne

not that hard - look at element.childNodes, A partir de .firstChild comprobar .nodeType == 3, remove the node if the .textContent property is all white space - repeat until first non text node is found. Then perform backwards from the last child node. - Alnitak

I don't really know why you want to do this but it seems like you are using jquery, so you can use the trim helper:

var $stuff = $(...the messy html you have above including the outer div);
var tidy = $.trim( $stuff.html() );
// tidy has no more div wrapper so you can do this:
return "<div>" + tidy "</div>"
// or this (but i dunno that it won't pad it again)

Two good answers, I've chosen the slightly more concise. Many thanks! - Tim

actually neither of them are good answers - the correct approach would be to explicitly remove empty text nodes found at the start or end of the div's child list. But I don't have time to write that just now. - Alnitak

You can easily write a jQuery plugin to do this. I created both a static and instance method for this.

Puedes alternar el __DEBUG__TRIM_TYPE variable below to change the technique. Each case will produce the exact same result. They are different ways of achieving the same result.

// jQuery Plugin
// =============================================================================
(function($) {
  $.fn.trimHtml = function() {
    return this.html(function(index, html) {
      return $.trim(html);
  $.trimHtml = function(selector) {
    return $(selector || '*').filter(function() {
      return $(this).data('trim') === true;

// Example
// =============================================================================
$(function() {
  var __DEBUG__TRIM_TYPE = 1; // You can change this to values between 1-3.
  switch (__DEBUG__TRIM_TYPE) {
      // Option #1. Select elements by a selector.
      case 1:

      // Option #2. Filter elements by a selector and their data.
      case 2:
        $('.pre-block').filter(function() { return $(this).data('trim'); }).trimHtml();

      // Option #3. Apply function to all elements where the "trim" data is TRUE.
      case 3:
h1 { font-size: 1.5em; }
.pre-block { display: inline-block; white-space: pre; border: thin solid black; }
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.js"></script>

<h1>Not Trimmed</h1>
<div class="pre-block" data-trim="false">
  Text not to be trimmed.

<h1>Already Trimmed</h1>
<div class="pre-block" data-trim="false">Text already trimmed.</div>

<div class="pre-block" data-trim="true">
  Text that was trimmed.
