Overview

Description:

Ox handles XML documents in two ways. It is a generic XML parser and writer as well as a fast Object / XML marshaller. Ox was written for speed as a replacement for Nokogiri and for Marshal.

As an XML parser it is 2 or more times faster than Nokogiri and as a generic XML writer it is 14 times faster than Nokogiri. Of course different files may result in slightly different times.

As an Object serializer Ox is 4 times faster than the standard Ruby Marshal.dump(). Ox is 3 times faster than Marshal.load().

Object Dump Sample:

require 'ox'

class Sample
  attr_accessor :a, :b, :c

  def initialize(a, b, c)
    @a = a
    @b = b
    @c = c
  end
end

# Create Object
obj = Sample.new(1, "bee", ['x', :y, 7.0])
# Now dump the Object to an XML String.
xml = Ox.dump(obj)
# Convert the object back into a Sample Object.
obj2 = Ox.parse_obj(xml)

Generic XML Writing and Parsing:

require 'ox'

doc = Ox::Document.new(:version => '1.0')

top = Ox::Element.new('top')
top[:name] = 'sample'
doc << top

mid = Ox::Element.new('middle')
mid[:name] = 'second'
top << mid

bot = Ox::Element.new('bottom')
bot[:name] = 'third'
mid << bot

xml = Ox.dump(doc)
puts xml
doc2 = Ox.parse(xml)
puts "Same? #{doc == doc2}"

Class Method Details

.default_optionsHash

Returns the default load and dump options as a Hash. The options are

  • :margin [String] left margin to inset when dumping

  • :indent [Fixnum] number of spaces to indent each element in an XML document

  • :trace [Fixnum] trace level where 0 is silent

  • :encoding [String] character encoding for the XML file

  • :with_dtd [true|false|nil] include DTD in the dump

  • :with_instruct [true|false|nil] include instructions in the dump

  • :with_xml [true|false|nil] include XML prolog in the dump

  • :circular [true|false|nil] support circular references while dumping

  • :xsd_date [true|false|nil] use XSD date format instead of decimal format

  • :mode [:object|:generic|:limited|:hash|:hash_no_attrs|nil] load method to use for XML

  • :effort [:strict|:tolerant|:auto_define] set the tolerance level for loading

  • :symbolize_keys [true|false|nil] symbolize element attribute keys or leave as Strings

  • :skip [:skip_none|:skip_return|:skip_white|:skip_off] determines how to handle white space in text

  • :smart [true|false|nil] flag indicating the SAX parser uses hints if available (use with html)

  • :convert_special [true|false|nil] flag indicating special characters like &lt; are converted with the SAX parser

  • :invalid_replace [nil|String] replacement string for invalid XML characters on dump. nil indicates include anyway as hex. A string, limited to 10 characters will replace the invalid character with the replace.

  • :strip_namespace [String|true|false] false or “” results in no namespace stripping. A string of “*” or true will strip all namespaces. Any other non-empty string indicates that matching namespaces will be stripped.

  • :overlay [Hash] a Hash of keys that match html element names and values that are one of

    • :active - make the normal callback for the element

    • :nest_ok - active but the nesting check is ignored

    • :inactive - do not make the element start, end, or attribute callbacks for this element only

    • :block - block this and all children callbacks

    • :off - block this element and it's children unless the child element is active

    • :abort - abort the html processing and return

return [Hash] all current option settings.

Note that an indent of less than zero will result in a tight one line output unless the text in the XML fields contain new line characters.

Returns:

  • (Hash)

.dumpObject

.load(xml, options) ⇒ Ox::Document, ...

Parses and XML document String into an Ox::Document, or Ox::Element, or Object depending on the options. Raises an exception if the XML is malformed or the classes specified are not valid. If a block is given it will be called on the completion of each complete top level entity with that entity as it's only argument.

  • xml [String] XML String

  • options [Hash] load options

    • :mode [:object|:generic|:limited] format expected

      • :object - object format

      • :generic - read as a generic XML file

      • :limited - read as a generic XML file but with callbacks on text and elements events only

      • :hash - read and convert to a Hash and core class objects only

      • :hash_no_attrs - read and convert to a Hash and core class objects only without capturing attributes

    • :effort [:strict|:tolerant|:auto_define] effort to use when an undefined class is encountered, default: :strict

      • :strict - raise an NameError for missing classes and modules

      • :tolerant - return nil for missing classes and modules

      • :auto_define - auto define missing classes and modules
