Swift 5.0 Carthage compatible Version License Platform

Simple XML Parser implemented in Swift

What's this?

This is a XML parser inspired by SwiftyJSON and SWXMLHash.

NSXMLParser in Foundation framework is a kind of "SAX" parser. It has enough performance but is a little inconvenient. So we have implemented "DOM" parser wrapping it.

Feature

  • ☑ access XML Document with "subscript".
  • ☑ access XML Document as Sequence.
  • ☑ easy debugging XML pathes.

Requirement

  • iOS 9.0+
  • tvOS 9.0+
  • macOS 10.10+
  • Swift 5.0

Installation

Carthage

1. create Cartfile

github "https://github.com/yahoojapan/SwiftyXMLParser"

2. install

> carthage update

CocoaPods

1. create Podfile

platform :ios, '9.0'
use_frameworks!

pod "SwiftyXMLParser", :git => 'https://github.com/yahoojapan/SwiftyXMLParser.git'

2. install

> pod install

Example

import SwiftyXMLParser

let str = """
<ResultSet>
    <Result>
        <Hit index=\"1\">
            <Name>Item1</Name>
        </Hit>
        <Hit index=\"2\">
            <Name>Item2</Name>
        </Hit>
    </Result>
</ResultSet>
"""

// parse xml document
let xml = try! XML.parse(str)

// access xml element
let accessor = xml["ResultSet"]

// access XML Text

if let text = xml["ResultSet", "Result", "Hit", 0, "Name"].text {
    print(text)
}

if let text = xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[0].Name.text {
    print(text)
}

// access XML Attribute
if let index = xml["ResultSet", "Result", "Hit", 0].attributes["index"] {
    print(index)
}

// enumerate child Elements in the parent Element
for hit in xml["ResultSet", "Result", "Hit"] {
    print(hit)
}

// check if the XML path is wrong
if case .failure(let error) =  xml["ResultSet", "Result", "TypoKey"] {
    print(error)
}

Usage

1. Parse XML

  • from String
let str = """
<ResultSet>
    <Result>
        <Hit index=\"1\">
            <Name>Item1</Name>
        </Hit>
        <Hit index=\"2\">
            <Name>Item2</Name>
        </Hit>
    </Result>
</ResultSet>
"""

xml = try! XML.parse(str) // -> XML.Accessor
  • from NSData
let str = """
<ResultSet>
    <Result>
        <Hit index=\"1\">
            <Name>Item1</Name>
        </Hit>
        <Hit index=\"2\">
            <Name>Item2</Name>
        </Hit>
    </Result>
</ResultSet>
"""

let string = String(decoding: data, as: UTF8.self)

xml = XML.parse(data) // -> XML.Accessor
  • with invalid character
let srt = "<xmlopening>@ß123\u{1c}</xmlopening>"

let xml = XML.parse(str.data(using: .utf8))

if case .failure(XMLError.interruptedParseError) = xml {
  print("invalid character")
}

2. Access child Elements

let element = xml.ResultSet // -> XML.Accessor

3. Access grandchild Elements

  • with String
let element = xml["ResultSet"]["Result"] // -> <Result><Hit index=\"1\"><Name>Item1</Name></Hit><Hit index=\"2\"><Name>Item2</Name></Hit></Result>
  • with Array
let path = ["ResultSet", "Result"]
let element = xml[path] // -> <Result><Hit index=\"1\"><Name>Item1</Name></Hit><Hit index=\"2\"><Name>Item2</Name></Hit></Result>
  • with Variadic
let element = xml["ResultSet", "Result"] // -> <Result><Hit index=\"1\"><Name>Item1</Name></Hit><Hit index=\"2\"><Name>Item2</Name></Hit></Result>
  • with @dynamicMemberLookup
let element = xml.ResultSet.Result // -> <Result><Hit index=\"1\"><Name>Item1</Name></Hit><Hit index=\"2\"><Name>Item2</Name></Hit></Result>

4. Access specific grandchild Element

let element = xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1] // -> <Hit index=\"2\"><Name>Item2</Name></Hit>

5. Access attribute in Element

if let attributeValue = xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1].attributes?["index"] {
  print(attributeValue) // -> 2
}

6. Access text in Element

  • with optional binding
if let text = xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1].Name.text {
    print(text) // -> Item2
} 
  • with custom operation
struct Entity {
  var name = ""
}
let entity = Entity()
entity.name ?= xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1].Name.text // assign if it has text
  • convert Int and assign
struct Entity {
  var name: Int = 0
}
let entity = Entity()
entity.name ?= xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1].Name.int // assign if it has Int

and there are other syntax sugers, bool, url and double.

  • assign text into Array
struct Entity {
  var names = [String](https://raw.github.com/yahoojapan/SwiftyXMLParser/master/)
}
let entity = Entity()
entity.names ?<< xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit[1].Name.text // assign if it has text

7. Count child Elements

let numberOfHits = xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit.all?.count 

8. Check error

print(xml.ResultSet.Result.TypoKey) // -> "TypoKey not found."

9. Access as SequenceType

  • for-in
for element in xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit {
  print(element.text)
}
  • map
xml.ResultSet.Result.Hit.map { $0.Name.text }

9. Generate XML document

print(Converter(xml.ResultSet).makeDocument())

Work with Alamofire

SwiftyXMLParser goes well with Alamofire. You can parse the response easily.

import Alamofire
import SwiftyXMLParser

Alamofire.request(.GET, "https://itunes.apple.com/us/rss/topgrossingapplications/limit=10/xml")
         .responseData { response in
            if let data = response.data {
                let xml = XML.parse(data)
                print(xml.feed.entry[0].title.text) // outputs the top title of iTunes app raning.
            }
        }

In addition, there is the extension of Alamofire to combine with SwiftyXMLParser.

Migration Guide
