xtraverse

Simplified traversal and building of an XML DOM.

This module provides a jQuery-like wrapper, but geared for traversing and manipulating an XML DOM, as opposeed to an HTML DOM. The API aims to be compatible with Strophe.js' Builder and Less-Than XML. The underlying DOM is W3C standard, provided by XMLDOM.

Install

$ npm install xtraverse

Usage

Parse XML

var xml = fs.readFileSync('feed.xml', 'utf8');
var feed = XT(xml);

Traverse XML

console.log(feed.children('title').text());
for (var link = feed.children().first('link'); link.length > 0; link = link.next('link')) {
  console.log(link.attr('href'));
}
for (var entry = feed.children().first('entry'); entry.length > 0; entry = entry.next('entry')) {
  console.log('Entry: ' + entry.children('title').text());
}

Build XML

var feed = XT('<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"/>')
  .c('title').t('Example Feed').up()
  .c('link', { href: 'http://example.org/' })
  .c('entry').c('title').t('Atom-Powered Robots Run Amok').up().up()
  .c('entry').c('title').t('Today I Ate Pancakes');
