An XMLBuilder for node.js similar to java-xmlbuilder.

Build Status


npm install xmlbuilder


I had to break compatibility while adding multiple instances in 0.1.3. As a result, version from v0.1.3 are not compatible with previous versions.


var builder = require('xmlbuilder');
var xml = builder.create('root')
  .ele('xmlbuilder', {'for': 'node-js'})
    .ele('repo', {'type': 'git'}, 'git://')
  .end({ pretty: true});


will result in:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <xmlbuilder for="node-js">
    <repo type="git">git://</repo>

If you need to do some processing:

var root = builder.create('squares');'f(x) = x^2');
for(var i = 1; i <= 5; i++)
  var item = root.ele('data');
  item.att('x', i);
  item.att('y', i * i);

This will result in:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <!-- f(x) = x^2 -->
  <data x="1" y="1"/>
  <data x="2" y="4"/>
  <data x="3" y="9"/>
  <data x="4" y="16"/>
  <data x="5" y="25"/>

See the Usage page in the wiki for more detailed instructions.
