    slimdom-sax-parser

    Parses XML to a slimdom document using saxes. slimdom is a fast, tiny, standards-compliant XML DOM implementation for browser and node.

    • Parses text, elements, attributes, processing instructions, comments and CDATA
    • Supports namespaces
    • Works in NodeJS and the browser

    Exports

    Has two named exports:

    • async (function) Asynchronously return a slimdom Document for the given XML string or Readable stream.
    • sync (function) Synchronously return a slimdom Document for the given XML string:
    • slimdom (slimdom) A reference to the lib this parser is built around, as a convenience.

    The shape of the async function is as follows;

    function async(
    	xml: string | stream.Readable,
    	options?: saxes.SaxesOptions & {
    		additionalEntities?: {
    			[entityName: string]: string;
    		};
    	}
    ): Promise<slimdom.Document>;

    The shape of the sync function is as follows;

    function sync(
    	xml: string,
    	options?: saxes.SaxesOptions & {
    		additionalEntities?: {
    			[entityName: string]: string;
    		};
    	}
    ): slimdom.Document;

    See also saxes.SaxesOptions and the standard DOM API.

    Usage

    import { async } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    
    const dom = await async('<xml foo="bar" />');
    import { sync } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    
    const dom = sync('<xml foo="bar" />');

    Examples

    Modify the XML DOM:

    import { sync } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    
    const document = sync(`<foo />`);
    
    document.documentElement.setAttribute('bar', 'baz');
    // document.documentElement.hasAttribute('bar') === true

    Use with an XPath engine (fontoxpath):

    import { sync } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    import { evaluateXPath } from 'fontoxpath';
    
    const document = sync(`<foo><bar /><baz /></foo>`);
    const childNodeNames = evaluateXPath('/foo/*/name()', document);
    // childNodeNames equals ['bar', 'baz']

    Use source code position tracking:

    import { slimdom, sync } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    
    const xml = '<example><child-element /></example>';
    
    const document = sync(xml, { position: true });
    // document instanceof slimdom.Document === true
    
    const childElement = document.documentElement.firstChild;
    // childElement instanceof slimdom.Element === true
    
    const position = childElement.position;
    // xml.substring(position.start, position.end) === '<child-element />'

    Transform a XML file:

    import fs from 'fs';
    import { async, slimdom } from 'slimdom-sax-parser';
    import { evaluateXPathToNodes } from 'fontoxpath';
    
    async function transform(filePath) {
    	const xmlStream = fs.createReadStream(filePath);
    	const document = await async(xmlStream);
    
    	const barNodes = evaluateXPathToNodes('//bar/*', document);
    	for (const barNode of barNodes) {
    		barNode.setAttribute('bar', 'baz');
    	}
    
    	await fs.promises.writeFile(filePath, slimdom.serializeToWellFormedString(document));
    }
    
    transform('./file.xml');
