Introduction

nkit4nodejs - is a nkit C++ library port to Node.js server.

With nkit4nodejs module you can convert XML string to JavaScript data and vise versa.

With XML-to-JavaScript-data possibilities you can:

  • Simply convert XML to JavaScript data with the same structure.

  • Create JavaScript data structures, which are different from the structure of XML source.

  • Create multiple JavaScript structures from one XML source.

  • Explicitly identify those elements and attributes in XML source that you want to use for building JavaScript data structures. Thus, it's possible to filter out unnecessary XML-data.

  • Explicitly define Javascript type of scalar (primitive) data, fetched from XML source. Integers, numbers, strings, datetimes and booleans are supported.

  • Control progress of chunked download and parsing of big XML string

  • With extra options you can tune some aspects of conversion:

    • trim strings
    • explicitly define white space characters for trim option
    • define special key to collect all element attributes

Conversion is carried out using SAX parser Expat, so it's fast and uses less memory when parsing huge XML files.

This module faster then any other xml-to-JavaScript module, written in pure JavaScript. For example, nkit4nodejs is about 5-8 times faster than popular xml2js module on parsing 20Mb XML file (see test/compare.js for comparison code).

Module supports not only native Expat XML encodings, but also many others (see /deps/nkit/src/encoding/langs.inc)

With JavaScript-Data-to-XML possibilities you can:

  • Create xml string with the same structure as JavaScript data
  • Define root element name of result xml string
  • Define item element name for arrays
  • Define encoding of result xml string
  • Pretty print with custom indentation and newline characters
  • Define special object key name for attributes
  • Define special object key name for text
  • Define which elements of result xml string must contain CDATA section
  • Define precision for float numbers
  • Define format for Date objects
  • Define representation for true and false values
  • Explicitly define order in which Object keys will be printed to XML text
  • Define type of result: string or node.Buffer

Installation

Requirements

nkit4nodejs module supports node.js v0.8 - v0.12 and v4 - v6

nkit4nodejs module must be compiled, so you have to install "build essentials" (if not yet):

  • for debian compatible linux (Debian, Ubuntu, etc.):

    sudo apt-get install build-essential

  • for red hat compatible linux (RHEL, SUSE, CentOS, etc.):

    sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

  • for Windows:

    Install MS Visual Studio 2012 or higher (MSVS Express is ok)

  • in Mac OS use XCode & brew

On Linux and Mac OS

npm install nkit4nodejs

On Windows

Library compiles on MSVS version >= 2012:

set GYP_MSVS_VERSION=2012 
npm install nkit4nodejs

or

set GYP_MSVS_VERSION=2013 
npm install nkit4nodejs

XML to JavaScript data conversion

Parsing without mappings

Quick start

Suppose, we have this xml string:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<persons type="sample">
    <person>
        <name>Jack</name>
        <phone>+122233344550</phone>
        <phone>+122233344551</phone>
    </person>
    <person>
        <name>Boris</name>
        <phone>+122233344553</phone>
        <phone>+122233344554</phone>
    </person>
    any text
</persons>

If we call this script:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
var options = {
    "trim": true,
    "attrkey": "$",
    "textkey": "_",
    "explicit_array": true
}
 
var builder = new nkit.AnyXml2VarBuilder(options);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
var root_element_name = builder.root_name()
 

we will receive the following structure in 'result':

{
  "person": [
    {
      "phone": [
        "+122233344550", 
        "+122233344551"
      ], 
      "name": [
        "Jack"
      ]
    }, 
    {
      "phone": [
        "+122233344553", 
        "+122233344554"
      ], 
      "name": [
        "Boris"
      ]
    }
  ], 
  "$": {
    "type": "sample"
  }, 
  "_": "any text"
}

Options

  • attrkey (default: $): Prefix that is used to access the attributes
  • textkey (default: _): Prefix that is used to access the character content
  • trim (default: false): Trim the whitespace at the beginning and end of text nodes
  • explicit_array (default - true): Always put child nodes in an array if true; otherwise an array is created only if there is more than one.

We can get same XML string back with the following script:

 
options = {
    "rootname": "persons",
    "encoding": "UTF-8",
    "xmldec": {
        "version": "1.0",
        "standalone": true,
    },
    "as_buffer": false,
    "priority": ["name",
                 "phone"
    ],
    "pretty": {
        "indent": "    ",
        "newline": "\n",
    },
    "attrkey": "$",
    "textkey": "_",
}
 
xmlString = nkit.var2xml(result, options)

NOTE: 'priority' option is important if you want print XML elements in fixed order

Parsing with mappings

Getting started

Suppose, we have this xml string:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<any_name>
    <person>
        <phone>+122233344550</phone>
        <name>Jack</name>
        <phone>+122233344551</phone>
        <age>33</age>
        <married firstTime="No">Yes</married>
        <birthday>Wed, 28 Mar 1979 12:13:14 +0300</birthday>
        <address>
            <city>New York</city>
            <street>Park Ave</street>
            <buildingNo>1</buildingNo>
            <flatNo>1</flatNo>
        </address>
        <address>
            <city>Boston</city>
            <street>Centre St</street>
            <buildingNo>33</buildingNo>
            <flatNo>24</flatNo>
        </address>
    </person>
    <person>
        <phone>+122233344553</phone>
        <name>Boris</name>
        <phone>+122233344554</phone>
        <age>34</age>
        <married firstTime="Yes">Yes</married>
        <birthday>Mon, 31 Aug 1970 02:03:04 +0300</birthday>
        <address>
            <city>Moscow</city>
            <street>Kahovka</street>
            <buildingNo>1</buildingNo>
            <flatNo>2</flatNo>
        </address>
        <address>
            <city>Tula</city>
            <street>Lenina</street>
            <buildingNo>3</buildingNo>
            <flatNo>78</flatNo>
        </address>
    </person>
</any_name>

With this script we cat generate two data structures:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mappings = {
    "list_of_strings": ["/person/phone", "string"],
    "list_of_lists_of_strings": ["/person", ["/phone", "string"]]
}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
list_of_strings = result["list_of_strings"]
list_of_lists_of_strings = result["list_of_lists_of_strings"]

Value of list_of_strings:

[
  "+122233344550",
  "+122233344551",
  "+122233344553",
  "+122233344554"
]

Value of list_of_lists_of_strings:

[
  [
    "+122233344550", 
    "+122233344551"
  ], 
  [
    "+122233344553", 
    "+122233344554"
  ]
]

Let's consider script above.

First of all, we importing nkit4nodejs. It contains class Xml2VarBuilder, which is responsible for xml-to-JavaScript-structures conversion.

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');

Xml2VarBuilder class uses 'mappings' structure, i.e. some directives about how to perform conversion. Mappings can be written in JSON string (or they can be JSON-compatible JavaScript structures, as in our example), they describe conversion process and final structures of JavaScript data. Our example contains two mappings: 'list_of_strings' and 'list_of_lists_of_strings':

mappings = {
    "list_of_strings": ["/person/phone", "string"],
    "list_of_lists_of_strings": ["/person", ["/phone", "string"]]
};

This means that after conversion we expect to get two data structures: list of all phones of all persons, and list of phone lists for each person.

First mapping - ["/person/phone", "string"]. It is enclosed in [] brackets. This means that we expect to get JavaScript list. This type of mapping is called 'list-mapping'.(Braces - {} - means that we want to get JavaScript objects. Not in this example - see below). First item of list-mapping defines the XPath where we want to find data. Second item defines a sub-mapping, which in our case is a scalar-submapping. Scalar-submapping contains information about type of data we want to get ('string' in our case). During conversion nkit4nodejs module will find all elements at path "/person/phone", convert their values to JavaScript string and put them into JavaScript list.

Second mapping - ["/person", ["/phone", "string"]] is another list-mapping, but first item points to "/person" XPath, and second item is list-submapping. List-submapping also contains two elements: sub-xpath and another submapping ('string' scalar-sabmapping in our case). Sub-xpath MUST be continuation of parent mapping xpath. During conversion nkit4nodejs module will find all "person" elements and for each "person" element it will find all "phone" sub-elements, convert their values to JavaScript string and put them into JavaScript list, which in turn will be placed to main list.

Each mapping have to be placed in "mappings" structure with some user defined name. This name will be used in the future to get actual data from result. In our case these names are: 'list_of_strings' and 'list_of_lists_of_strings'.

Now we create builder object:

var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mapping);

and feed our xml string to it:

builder.feed(xmlString);

If we receiving xml by chunks, then it is possible to call builder.feed() method many times (one time for each chunk in order they received).

After feeding all chunks to builder we call end() method to indicate that xml has been completely received. Also, builder.end() method returns all data structures at once (to "result" variable in our case):

result = builder.end();

Now we can get our structures by their mapping names:

list_of_strings = result["list_of_strings"]
list_of_lists_of_strings = result["list_of_lists_of_strings"]

Building simple object from xml string (last 'person' xml element will be used)

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = {   // <- opening brace for object-mapping
    
        "/person/name -> lastPersonName": "string|Captain Nemo",
        "/person/married/@firstTime -> lastPersonIsMarriedFirstTime":
            "boolean|True",
        "/person/age": "integer"
    
    }   // <- closing brace of object-mapping
 
mappings = {"last_person": mappings}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
last_person = result["last_person"]

Value of last_person:

{
  "name": "Boris", 
  "is_married_first_time": true,
  "age": 34
}

Now we use object-mapping (look at the {} braces). Object mapping consists of mapping items. In our case there is three mapping items:

  1. "/person/name": "string|Captain Nemo"
  2. "/person/married/@firstTime -> is_married_first_time": "boolean|True"
  3. "/person/age": "integer"

Each mapping item consists of object-key-definition and sub-mapping.

Object-key-definitions are described by "xpath" or "xpath -> optional_key_name". If no optional_key_name has been provided, then last element name in XPath will be used for key name ("name" in mapping item #1 and "age" in mapping item #3). Thus, our result object will contain three items with "name", "is_married_first_time" and "age" keys.

Value for each mapping item will be constructed from data at provided XPath according to their sub-mappings. In our example, all sub-mappings are scalars. Note, that it is possible to use "delault values" by putting them in scalar-submapping after type definition and "|" delimiter ( "Captain Nemo" in mapping item #1 and "True" in mapping item #2). Default values for scalars are working only in object-mappings, not in list-mappings.

Building list-of-objects from xml string

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = ["/person",
    {
        "/birthday": "datetime|Fri, 22 Aug 2014 13:59:06 +0000|%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S %z",
        "/name": "string"
    }
]
 
mappings = {"persons": mapping}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
persons = result["persons"]

Value of persons:

[
  {
    "birthday": "1970-11-28 00:00:00", 
    "name": "Jack"
  }, 
  {
    "birthday": "1969-07-16 00:00:00", 
    "name": "Boris"
  }
]

Now we use list-mapping and object-submapping. Module will:

  • find all person elements
  • for each person element construct object from their "birthday" and "name" sub-elements and
  • put those objects to main list.

Node: datetime scalar-mapping MUST consists of three elements, divided by "|":

"datetime|default-value|format-string-in-C-strptime()-function-syntax"

Default value MUST correspond to format string

Building list-of-objects-with-lists from xml string

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = ["/person",
    {
        "/address/city -> cities": ["/", "string"]
        // or:
        // "/address -> cities": ["/city", "string"]
        // or:
        // "/ -> cities": ["/address/city", "string"]
        "/photos": ["/*", "string"],
        "/name": "string"
    }
]
 
mappings = {"persons": mapping}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
persons = result["persons"]

Value of persons:

[
  {
    "photos": ["img1","img2","img3"],
    "cities": [
      "New York", 
      "Boston"
    ], 
    "name": "Jack"
  }, 
  {
    "photos": ["img3","img4"],
    "cities": [
      "Moscow", 
      "Tula"
    ], 
    "name": "Boris"
  }
]

As you can see, you can include list- or object-mappings in each other. List-mapping can contain list- or object-submapping and vise-versa. Also, it is possible to use '*' char in XPath.

Creating keys in object for non-existent xml elements

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = ["/person",
    {
        "/photos": ["/*", {
            "/ -> url" : "string",
            "/width": "integer|0", // element "width" doesn't exist in xml, 
                                   // but because of default value in scalar-mapping "integer|0"
                                   // key "width" will be created with this default value
            "/height": "integer|0" // element "height" doesn't exist in xml, 
                                   // but because of default value in scalar-mapping "integer|0"
                                   // key "height" will be created with this default value
        }],
        "/name": "string"
    }
]
 
mappings = {"persons": mapping}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
persons = result["persons"]

Value of persons:

[
  {
    "photos": [
      {
        "url": "img1", 
        "width": 0, 
        "height": 0
      }, 
      {
        "url": "img2", 
        "width": 0, 
        "height": 0
      }, 
      {
        "url": "img3", 
        "width": 0, 
        "height": 0
      }
    ], 
    "name": "Jack"
  }, 
  {
    "photos": [
      {
        "url": "img3", 
        "width": 0, 
        "height": 0
      }, 
      {
        "url": "img4", 
        "width": 0, 
        "height": 0
      }
    ], 
    "name": "Boris"
  }
]

Using attribute values to generate Object keys

Suppose, we have this XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<GTSResponse>
    <Record>
        <Field name="TITLE">Empire Burlesque</Field>
        <Field name="ARTIST">Bob Dylan</Field>
        <Field name="COUNTRY">USA</Field>
        <Field name="COMPANY">Columbia</Field>
        <Field name="PRICE">10.90</Field>
        <Field name="YEAR">1985</Field>
    </Record>
    <Record>
        <Field name="TITLE">Hide your heart</Field>
        <Field name="ARTIST">Bonnie Tyler</Field>
        <Field name="COUNTRY">UK</Field>
        <Field name="COMPANY">CBS Records</Field>
        <Field name="PRICE">9.90</Field>
        <Field name="YEAR">1988</Field>
    </Record>
</GTSResponse>

And we want to get such structure:

{ "records": [
    { "TITLE": "Empire Burlesque",
      "ARTIST": "Bob Dylan",
      "COUNTRY": "USA",
      "COMPANY": "Columbia",
      "PRICE": "10.90",
      "YEAR": "1985"
    },
    { "TITLE": "Hide your heart",
      "ARTIST": "Bonnie Tyler",
      "COUNTRY": "UK",
      "COMPANY": "CBS Records",
      "PRICE": "9.90",
      "YEAR": "1988"
    }
  ]
}

We can do it with this mapping:

["/Record", {"/Field -> @name": "string"} ]

Here object key definition "/Field -> @name" contain key alias '@name', that means that module will use 'name' attribute values for keys.

Full example:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = ["/Record", {"/Field -> @name": "string"} ]
 
mappings = {"main": mapping}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
result = result["main"]
 

Building data structures from big XML source, reading it chunk by chunk

You can use builder.get(mapping_name) method to get currently constructed data.

var fs = require('fs');
var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
var mapping = ["/person", ["/phone", "string"]];
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder({"any_name": mapping});
var rstream = fs.createReadStream(xmlFile);
rstream
    .on('data', function (chunk) {
        builder.feed(chunk);
        var list = builder.get("any_name"); // get currently constructed list
        console.log(list.length);
        //list.splice(0); // uncomment this to clear list every time
    })
    .on('end', function () {
        var result = builder.end()["any_name"];
        console.log("Items count: %d", result.length);
    });

Also, streaming can be used with nkit.AnyXml2VarBuilder. See test/streaming_example.js.

If you want some JSON

Just wrap the result object in a call to JSON.stringify:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder({"phones": ["/person/phone", "string"]});
builder.feed(xmlString);
var phones = builder.end()["phones"];
 
// print json
console.error(JSON.stringify(phones));
 
// pretty print
console.error(JSON.stringify(phones, null, 2));
 

Options

With options you can tune some aspects of conversion:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
mapping = ["/person",
    {
        "/*": "string"
    }
]
 
mappings = {"persons": mapping}
 
options = {
    "trim": true,
    "white_spaces": " \t\n\r",
    "true_variants": ["True", "true", "Foo", "foo"],
    "false_variants": ["False", "false", "Bar", "bar"]
}
 
var builder = new nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(options, mappings);
builder.feed(xmlString);
var result = builder.end();
 
persons = result["persons"]

Following options are supported:

  • "trim": Trim out whitespaces at the beginning and at ending of strings. Boolean. true or false. Default is false.
  • "white_spaces": Characters which are must be considered as white spaces. String. Default - "\t\n\r ", i.e. tab, new line, carriage return and space.
  • "true_variants": Custom array of strings, which will be treated as 'true' when parsed with boolean sub-mapping. Default ["True", "true", "Yes", "yes"]
  • "false_variants": Custom array of strings, which will be treated as 'false' when parsed with boolean sub-mapping. Default ["False", "false", "No", "no"]
  • "attrkey": If defined, this option cause nkit4nodejs module to collect all element attributes for all object-mappings (if corresponding elements has attributes, of course).

Example for 'attrkey' usage:

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
options = {"attrkey": "$"};
 
mapping = ["/person",
    {
        "/name": "string",
        "/married": {"/ -> Now": "string"} // Elements '/person/married' has attributes
                                           // Module will collect them
    }
];
 
mappings = {"married_info": mapping};
 
builder = nkit.Xml2VarBuilder(options, mappings);
builder.feed(xml_string);
result = builder.end();
married_info = result["married_info"];

Value of married_info:

[
  {
    "married": {
      "Now": "Yes", 
      "$": { // <- Key '$' will hold all attributes for '/person/married' elements
        "firstTime": "No"
      }
    }, 
    "name": "Jack"
  }, 
  {
    "married": {
      "Now": "Yes", 
      "$": {
        "firstTime": "Yes"
      }
    }, 
    "name": "Boris"
  }
]

Notes

Possible scalar types:

- string
- integer
- number
- datetime
- boolean

Scalar types can be followed by '|' sign and default value

datetime type MUST be followed by '|' sign, default value, another '|' sign and format string. See man strptime for datetime formatting syntax. Default value of datetime MUST correspond to format string.

Path in mapping specifications are very simple XPath now. Only

/path/to/element
/path/to/element/with/optional/@attribute
/paths/to/element/with/*/sign
/paths/to/element/with/*/sign/with/optional/@attribute

paths are supported.

JavaScript object keys get their names from the last element name in the path. If you want to change key names, use this notation:

"/path/to/element -> newKeyName": ...
"/path/to/element/@attribute -> newKeyName": ...

JavaScript data to XML conversion

Quick start

var nkit = require('nkit4nodejs');
 
var data = {
    "$": {"p1": "в1&v2\"'", "p2": "v2"},
    "_": "Hello(Привет) world(мир)",
    "int_число": 1,
    "true": true,
    "false": false,
    "float": 1.123456789,
    "cdata1": "text < > & \" '",

Options

Following options are supported:

  • rootname: name of root element. If not provided then result XML will be w/o xmldec and root element;

  • itemname: default element name for JavaScript array items. Default - 'item';

  • encoding: "UTF-8" or some other encodings (see /deps/nkit/src/encoding/langs.inc for list of supported encodings). Default - "UTF-8";

  • as_buffer: true or false. If true then make XML as Buffer, else make it as String. Default true. If encoding is not "UTF-8", then this option has no effect and XML will be generated as Buffer.

  • xmldec: XML declaration. Default - NO XML declaration. Sub-options:

    • version: xml version;
    • standalone: true or false;
  • pretty: pretty XML - with indents and custom newlines. Default - NO pretty print, i.e. print XML in single line. Sub-options:

    • indent: any string for indentation;
    • newline: any string for line ending;
  • attrkey: any string for Object key name, that holds attributes for element. Default '$';

  • textkey: any string for Object key name, that holds text for element. Default '_';

  • cdata: array of key names whose values mast be print to XML string as CDATA. Default - empty array;

  • float_precision: for float numbers - number of symbols after '.' to be printed. Default - 2;

  • date_time_format: format string of Date objects. See man strftime for datetime formatting syntax. Default "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S";

  • bool_true: representation for 'true' boolean value. Default '1';

  • bool_false: representation for 'false' boolean value. Default '0';

  • priority: list of element names. All Object keys are printed to XML in order they enumerated in this list. Other Object keys are printed in unexpected order.

If no rootname has been provided then xmldec will no effect. If data is Object (not Array) then attrkey will no effect for root Object.

If data is Array then itemname will be used as element name for its items.
