gulp-xml-editor-re

gulp-xml-editor-re is a gulp plugin to edit XML document based on libxmljs.


This is a forked package from gulp-xml-editor with libxmljs upgraded to the latest version, since that package seems like deprecated.


Usage

var xeditor = require("gulp-xml-editor-re");
 
/*
  edit XML document by using user specific object
*/
gulp.src("./manifest.xml")
  .pipe(xeditor([
    {path: '//name', text: 'new names'},
    {path: '//version', attr: {'major': '2'}}
  ]))
  .pipe(gulp.dest("./dest"));
 
/*
  edit XML document by using user specific object using a namespace
*/
gulp.src("./manifest.xml")
  .pipe(xeditor([
    {path: '//xmlns:name', text: 'new names'},
    {path: '//xmlns:version', attr: {'major': '2'}}
  ], 'http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets'))
  .pipe(gulp.dest("./dest"));
 
 
/*
  edit XML document by using user specific function
*/
gulp.src("./manifest.xml")
  .pipe(xeditor(function(xml, xmljs) {
 
    // 'xml' is libxmljs Document object.
    xml.get('//key[./text()="Version"]').nextElement().text('2.0.0');
 
    // 'xmljs' is libxmljs object. you can call any libxmljs function.
    var child = new xmljs.Element(xml, 'note');
    child.text('some text');
    xml.get('//description').addChild(child);
 
    // must return libxmljs Document object.
    return xml;
  }))
  .pipe(gulp.dest("./dest"));
