Online Demo

Here's a JSFiddle demo

Usage

Without XML attributes

var parser = require('xml2json-light');
var xml = ‘<person><name>John Doe</name></person>’;
var json = parser.xml2json(xml); 

console.log(json); 
// prints ‘{"person": {"name": "John Doe"}}’

With XML attributes

Single attribute

var parser = require('xml2json-light');
var xml = ‘<person id="1234"><name>John Doe</name></person>’;
var json = parser.xml2json(xml); 

console.log(json); 
// prints ‘{“person”: {"id": "1234", "name": "John Doe"}}’

Multiple attributes

var parser = require('xml2json-light');
var xml = ‘<person id="1234" age="30"><name>John Doe</name></person>’;
var json = parser.xml2json(xml); 

console.log(json); 
// prints ‘{“person”: {“id”: “1234”, “age”: “30”, “name”: “John Doe”}}’

Special cases

Orphan values

var parser = require('xml2json-light');
var xml = ‘<person id="1234">Something</person>’;

// The xml string is converted to : 
// <person><id>1234</id>Something</person>’
//
// This line now contains an orphan value
// the xml string is then converted to :
// ‘<person><id>1234</id><_@ttribute>Something</_@ttribute></person>’

var json = parser.xml2json(xml); 
console.log(json); 
// prints ‘{"person": {"id": "1234", "_@ttribute": "Something"}}’

Comments

var parser = require('xml2json-light');
var xml = '<name> <!-- some comment --> Jane Doe </name>';

// The xml string is converted to : 
// <name> Jane Doe </name>
// All comments will be removed 

var json = parser.xml2json(xml); 
console.log(json); 
// prints ‘{"name": "Jane Doe"}’
