什么是xmlcreate,Simple XML builder for Node.js



Build Status npm version


xmlcreate is a Node.js module that can be used to build XML using a simple API.


xmlcreate allows you to use a series of chained function calls to build an XML tree.

Once the tree is built, it can be serialized to text. The formatting of the text is customizable.

xmlcreate can perform some basic validation to check that the resulting XML is well-formed.


The easiest way to install xmlcreate is using npm:

npm install xmlcreate

You can also build xmlcreate from source using npm and gulp:

git clone https://github.com/michaelkourlas/node-xmlcreate.git
npm install

The default target will build the production variant of xmlcreate, run all tests, and build the documentation.

You can build the production variant without running tests using the target prod. You can also build the development version using the target dev. The only difference between the two is that the development version includes source maps.


The documentation for the current version is available here.

You can also build the documentation using gulp:

gulp docs


The following example illustrates the basic usage of xmlcreate:

import {document} from "xmlcreate";

const tree = document();
    .decl({encoding: "UTF-8"})
             name: "html",
             pubId: "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN",
             sysId: "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"
    .element({name: "root"})
        .attribute({name: "xmlns"})
            .text({charData: "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"})
        .attribute({name: "xml:lang"})
            .text({charData: "en"})
        .element({name: "head"})
            .element({name: "title"})
                .charData({charData: "My page title"})
        .element({name: "body"})
            .element({name: "h1"})
                .charData({charData: "Welcome!"})
            .element({name: "p"})
                .charData({charData: "This is some text on my website."})
        .element({name: "div"})
            .element({name: "img"})
                .attribute({name: "src"})
                    .text({charData: "picture.png"})
                .attribute({name: "alt"})
                    .text({charData: "picture"})

console.log(tree.toString({doubleQuotes: true}));

This example produces the following XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
        <title>My page title</title>
        <p>This is some text on my website.</p>

Additional examples can be found in examples/example.js.


xmlcreate includes a set of tests to verify core functionality. You can run the tests using gulp:

gulp test

The test target builds the production variant of xmlcreate before running the tests. The test-prod target does the same thing, while the test-dev target builds the development variant first instead.
