Dataflow translates to or from XML, YAML, JSON, JSON-P and serialized PHP.

branch: 3.3/master

Dataflow Module

Simple way of translating to or from XML, YAML, JSON, JSON-P and serialized PHP. Great for general usage or incorporating into a REST API.

// Set drivers (each key is config that passes through to its respective library, 
// `decode` to `Dataflow_Decode` and `encode` to `Dataflow_Encode`)
$config = array
    'decode' => array('driver' => 'YAML'),
    'encode' => array('driver' => 'XML')

// Example of converting XML to YAML and outputting results
echo Dataflow::factory($config)->set($xml);

// Convert any supported format to a standardized array

// Decode XML to an associative array
$array = Dataflow_Decode::factory(array('driver' => 'XML'))

// Encode associative array to XML
$xml = Dataflow_Encode::factory(array('driver' => 'XML'))
