However, js2xmlparser is capable of parsing any object, including native
RegExp, by taking advantage of each
toString function or, if this function does not exist, the
js2xmlparser also has support for the
Set objects introduced in
ECMAScript 2015, treating them as JSON-type objects and arrays respectively.
Maps is necessary to generate XML with elements in a specific
order, since JSON-type objects do not guarantee insertion order.
Map keys are
always converted to strings using the method described above.
js2xmlparser also supports a number of constructs unique to XML:
- attributes (through an attribute property in objects)
- mixed content (through value properties in objects)
- multiple elements with the same name (through arrays)
js2xmlparser can also pretty-print the XML it outputs.
The easiest way to install js2xmlparser is using npm:
npm install js2xmlparser
You can also build js2xmlparser from source using npm:
git clone https://github.com/michaelkourlas/node-js2xmlparser.git npm install npm run-script build
build script will build the production variant of js2xmlparser, run all
tests, and build the documentation.
You can build the production variant without running tests using the script
prod. You can also build the development version using the script
The only difference between the two is that the development version includes
The documentation for the current version is available here.
You can also build the documentation using npm:
npm run-script docs
The following example illustrates the basic usage of js2xmlparser:
var js2xmlparser = ;var obj ="firstName": "John""lastName": "Smith""dateOfBirth": 1964 7 26"address":"@":"type": "home""streetAddress": "3212 22nd St""city": "Chicago""state": "Illinois""zip": 10000"phone":"@":"type": "home""#": "123-555-4567""@":"type": "cell""#": "890-555-1234""@":"type": "work""#": "567-555-8901""email": "email@example.com";console;
This example produces the following XML:
JohnSmithWed Aug 26 1964 00:00:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Summer Time)3212 22nd StChicagoIllinois10000123firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional examples can be found in the examples directory.
js2xmlparser includes a set of tests to verify core functionality. You can run the tests using npm:
npm run-script test-prod
The only difference between the
test-dev scripts is that the
development version includes source maps.
