This library contains a parser for Mac OS X Plist (property list) files. These are often used in programming OS X and iOS applications, as well as the iTunes configuration XML file.

Plist files represent stored programming "object"s. This makes them very similar in nature to a JSON file. A valid Plist file should be directly representable as a native JavaScript Object.


Exported are parseFile and parseString functions. Here's some examples:

var plist = require('plist');

plist.parseFile('myPlist.plist', function(err, obj) {
  if (err) throw err;


Just a String payload works as well:

var plist = require('plist');

plist.parseString('<plist><string>Hello World!</string></plist>', function(err, obj) {
  if (err) throw err;

  // Hello World!
