    domparser

    This is a pure JS implementation of DOM parsing, to be used instead of DOMParser in a browser. We use sax.js for the low-level parsing, and convert it to the browser's native Document object, or xmldom.

    Why not use the built-in DOMParser?

    The built-in DOMParser in modern browsers should be sufficient for most use cases, and has very good performance. However, it does have some limitations:

    1. Error reporting is very different on the different browsers. The browser typically stops after the first error.
    2. It's not possible to get access to position info (what line/column an element is on).

    This project aims to be a lightweight replacement for the built-in parser, with better error handling and position reporting.

    Usage

    const { DOMParser } = require('@journeyapps/domparser');
    var doc = new DOMParser().parseFromString("<test>xml</test>");
    

    Supported environments

    Should work on any browser that supports ES6.

    Tested on recent versions of Node, Chrome and Firefox.

    When running in Node, a recent version of xmldom is required.
