nom-xml

Build Status

A library to help you tame sprawling XML schemas.

nom-xml allows you to define a “terminology” to ease translation between XML and ruby objects – you can query the xml for Nodes or node values without ever writing a line of XPath. nom-xml is built on top of nokogiri decorators, which means you can mix-and-match NOM accessors with nokogiri xpaths, xml manipulation, and traversing and it will just work.

Here are some resources to help you learn more about nom-xml:

An Example

“l

Avocado Dip Sunnydale 29 11 3 5 210 2 0 1 0 0 0 0

“by require ‘nom/xml’

load the source document as normal

doc = Nokogiri::XML my_source_document

doc.set_terminology do |t| t.name

t.vitamins do |v| v.a v.c end

t.minerals do |m| m.calcium :path => ‘ca’ m.iron :path => ‘fe’ end end

doc.nom!

doc.name.text == ‘Avocado Dip’ doc.minerals.calcium.text == ‘0’
