    Selax

    NPM

    A module for streaming XML nodes matched with CSS3 selectors using a through stream. Pipe XML data directly out of a file or network connection into Selax and capture the nodes you want with a CSS3 selector pattern.

    Example

     
    // Stream temperature nodes from a met.no RSS weather data document (see: http://api.met.no/weatherapi/documentation )
     
    var source = fs.createReadStream('weatherdata.rss');
    var selax = require('selax');
     
    var ax = selax('weatherdata time:first-child temperature');
     
    source.pipe(ax);
     
    ax.on('readable', function(){
      var node;
     
      while(node = ax.read()){
        console.log('Found matching temperature node: ', node);
      }
    });
     
    ax.on('end', function(){
      console.log('Finished selecting temperature nodes');
    });
     

    Notes

    Selax is based on libxml2js and emits node objects as plain Javascript objects. Nodes have a type, name, a children array and an attr(name) function for reading attributes.
