This library provides a generic interface to parse XML data: a user might implement how to parse and serialize their data (possibly derived), while others will implement adaptors for generic XML parsers.
This is similar to what serde does; but serde assumes your data consists of "native data"
(strings, integers, floats, ...) and nested data (lists and maps). XML doesn't map to this
very well; while there are some adaptors, they often accept lots of structually different input
data: an element might be interpreted as map in serde. A subelement with text now can be
interpreted as key (
<key>value</key>), but an attribute is interpreted the same way
This library focuses only on XML instead, and provides a more strict interface with clearly defined output.
For the following XML handling crates adaptors are included if enabled through the equally named features:
derive feature is enabled the following traits can be derived:
Helper functions to generate common errors
Use this to activate all trait extensions without importing their names.
Traits and helper structs to parse XML
Parser/serializer adaptors using
Traits and helper structs to serialize XML
For now we use a simple boxed error to show the user
