When it comes to parsing XML/CSV/JSON/... documents, there are 2 approaches to consider:

DOM loading: loads all the document, making it easy to navigate and parse, and as such provides maximum flexibility for developers.

Streaming: implies iterating through the document, acts like a cursor and stops at each element in its way, thus avoiding memory overkill.

Thus, when it comes to big files, callbacks will be executed meanwhile file is downloading and will be much more efficient as far as memory is concerned.

Installation

composer require rodenastyle/stream-parser

Recommended usage

Delegate as possible the callback execution so it doesn't blocks the document reading:

(Laravel Queue based example)

use Tightenco\Collect\Support\Collection;

StreamParser::xml("https://example.com/users.xml")->each(function(Collection $user){
    dispatch(new App\Jobs\SendEmail($user));
});
