# Simple SAX-based XML2JSON Parser. It does not parse the following elements: * CDATA sections (*) * Processing instructions * XML declarations * Entity declarations * Comments ## Installation ``` $ npm install xml2json ``` ## Usage ```javascript var parser = require('xml2json'); var xml = "<foo>bar</foo>"; var json = parser.toJson(xml); //returns a string containing the JSON structure by default console.log(json); ``` ## API ```javascript parser.toJson(xml, options); ``` ```javascript parser.toXml(json, options); ``` ### Options object Default values: ```javascript var options = { object: false, reversible: false, coerce: true, sanitize: true, trim: true }; ``` * **object:** Returns a Javascript object instead of a JSON string * **reversible:** Makes the JSON reversible to XML (*) * **coerce:** Makes type coercion. i.e.: numbers and booleans present in attributes and element values are converted from string to its correspondent data types. * **trim:** Removes leading and trailing whitespaces as well as line terminators in element values. * **sanitize:** Sanitizes the following characters present in element values: ```javascript var chars = { '<': '&lt;', '>': '&gt;', '(': '&#40;', ')': '&#41;', '#': '&#35;', '&': '&amp;', '"': '&quot;', "'": '&apos;' }; ``` (*) xml2json tranforms CDATA content to JSON, but it doesn't generate a reversible structure. ## License (The MIT License) Copyright 2012 BugLabs.
