I support adding Nokogiri to the standard library.

AFAIK nokogiri depends external libraries which is not a good property to introduce.

In the first place do we want standard libraries today? In this age of rubygems and bundler?

  • Status changed from Open to Rejected

Let me close this issue because its goal is too vague to be achieved. For instance if someone wants to add Nokogiri to core, please file a specific issue to request such thing.

I think nokogiri is not a good addition. Not because it is a bad
library, no, quite the opposite, but if I recall correctly it
depends on mini_portile2 (so this has to be included too, in
that case), and more importantly it requires compilation which
can fail (and failed for me in the past).
