In Beautiful Soup, the next_elements property of a tag or a string returns a generator used to iterate over all the next strings or tags in the parse tree.

Examples

Consider the following HTML document:

my_html = """
   <p>Alex</p>
   <p>Bob</p>
"""
soup = BeautifulSoup(my_html)

Let's get the next_elements of <p>Alex</p> and loop through the resulting generator:

p_alex = soup.find("p")
for element in p_alex.next_elements:
print(element)
<p>Alex</p>
Alex
<p>Bob</p>
Bob

Notice how the inner string is registered as the next element. The takeaway here is that the order goes from tag to inner string. Furthermore, there is a new line character \n between <p>Alex</p> and <p>Bob</p> which is why we see blank lines in the output.
