KindDom provides fail-safe access to the the DOM of an XML document using three methods:
#collection_of to select a collection of nodes
#first_of to select one node
#content_for to get node content.
The original libxml behavior of the parsed document is preserved.
As a contrived example, in the controller:
@results = .(xml_data)
In the view:
<% @results.first_of('//item') do |item| -%> <% item.content_for('description') do |description| -%> <!-- this block is only executed if `item` & `description` is found --> <p><%=h description %></p> <% end -%> <% end -%>
