XML2Struct

XML can be a pain... Sometimes its a lot more handy to work with a tree structure or even json or an array!
This package was created to ease testing with xml files, so that, instead of going through a lengthy DOMElement test case or even just string-matching the xml right away, one could convert the xml into a more easily handled structure.
Thus XML2Struct was born.

Usage:

Install package through composer:

composer require jitesoft/xml2struct

The parser is quite simple to use, all that is needed is to create a new parser object and call its parse method supplying the xml you want parsed as a string:

$parser = new Jitesoft\XML\Parser();
// Node tree!
$out    = $parser->parse(file_get_contents('myxmlfile.xml'));
// Json string!
$json   = json_encode($out);
// Array!
$array  = $out->toArray();

For more in-depth examples, check the examples folder.

The object returned is a Jitesoft\XML\Node structure.
The structure have the following fields defined:

name:       string                  default: ""
content:    string                  default: ""
attributes: array ([key => value])  default: []
children:   array ([Node])          default: []

When converting a node to an array or a json string, the properties or keys will be named the same as the Nodes fields. The keys will always be there, even if there is no value from the xml, if no parsed value, it will be the default value stated above..

Changes

2.0

  • Removed OutType on parsing. Instead use Node::toArray and json_encode($node).
  • Removed Node::toString override. Dump as json if wanted as json.
