Build status

An XML parser/stringifier for digger container data

example

var XML = require('digger-xml');
var data = XML.parse('<folder name="hello"><thing name="thing" /></folder>');
var xml_string = XML.stringify(data);

data becomes:

[{
    name:'hello',
    _digger:{
        tag:'folder'
    },
    _children:[{
        name:'thing',
        _digger:{
            tag:'thing'
        }
    }]
}]

xml_string becomes:

<folder name="hello"><thing name="thing" /></folder>

installation

as a node module:

$ npm install digger-xml

or in the browser using browserify

usage

Both versions work the same in the browser or on the server.

The server version uses xmldom for the XML parsing.

The browser version uses the native browser parsers.

parse

Takes a string and returns digger data

var data = XML.parse('<folder name="hello"><thing name="thing" /></folder>');

If there is an 'attr' element as a direct child - it is applied as an attribute of the parent:

<blog title="my post">
<attr name="content">hello world</attr>
</blog>

This is turned into:

[{
    content:'hello world',
    _digger:{
        tag:'blog'
    }
}]

stringify

Takes an array of digger data and returns an XML string.

Attributes are turned into nodes if they are strings and more than 32 chars long or container a \n char.

var XML = require('digger-xml');
var data = [{
    content:"hello \nworld",
    _digger:{
        tag:'blog'
    }
}]

var xml_string = XML.stringify(data);

This outputs:

<blog title="my post">
<attr name="content">hello 
world</attr>
</blog>

tests

There are 2 sets of tests one for the npm node version and one for the component.

To run the server tests:

$ make test

And the browser ones (using phantomjs which you need to install):

$ make browser-test
