This library is currently in beta version, it has memory leaks and some bugs waiting to be fixed. We (me and my cat) will update soon.

XML2Dictionary is an object which must be set as NSXMLParser delegate to parse any XML and put it into a NSDictionary.

  • The result is an NSDictionary.
  • Every node having some child nodes with different names becomes a NSDictionary with structure "node_name" => content.
  • Every node having some chidl with same names becomes a NSArray with structure (content,content,content…).
  • All chars founded becomes a NSString.

Here goes an example!: //Initialize XML2Dictionary XML2NSDictionary* parseDelegate = [[XML2NSDictionary alloc] init];

//Setting up the conection and the parser
NSURL *url = [[NSURL alloc] initWithString:@"http://some.url/service"];
NSXMLParser *parser = [[NSXMLParser alloc] initWithContentsOfURL:url];

//Set l'XML2Dictionary as parser delegate
parser.delegate = parseDelegate;

[parser parse];

//You can verify the class type of result or its elements with 
//NSLog(@"%@",[parseDelegate.result class]);

//Now we can navigate through the result
NSMutableDictionary *xml = parseDelegate.result;
NSObject *unrecognizedObject = [[[xml valueForKey:@"node1"]
