Easily convert valid xml to a php array.

Installation

Install via composer:

composer require mtownsend/xml-to-array

Quick start

Using the class

use Mtownsend\XmlToArray\XmlToArray;

$xml = <<<XML
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<request>
    <carrier>fedex</carrier>
    <id>123</id>
    <tracking_number>9205590164917312751089</tracking_number>
</request>
XML;

$array = XmlToArray::convert($xml);

// $array is:
[
	'carrier' => 'fedex',
	'id' => '123',
	'tracking_number' => '9205590164917312751089'
];

Using the global helper

$xml = <<<XML
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<request>
    <carrier>fedex</carrier>
    <id>123</id>
    <tracking_number>9205590164917312751089</tracking_number>
</request>
XML;

$array = xml_to_array($xml);

// $array is:
[
	'carrier' => 'fedex',
	'id' => '123',
	'tracking_number' => '9205590164917312751089'
];

Helpers, methods, and arguments

Static method

XmlToArray::convert($xml, $outputRoot = false)

The $outputRoot determines whether or not the php array will have a @root key. Default is false.

Purpose
