TBXML is a light-weight XML document parser written in Objective-C designed for use on Apple iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch devices. TBXML aims to provide the fastest possible XML parsing whilst utilising the fewest resources. This requirement for absolute efficiency is achieved at the expense of XML validation and modification. It is not possible to modify and generate valid XML from a TBXML object and no validation is performed whatsoever whilst importing and parsing an XML document.

 

NOTE: I'm in the process of moving TBXML to GitHub. You can find the latest project there.

The design goals for TBXML are:

  1. BulletXML files conforming to the W3C XML spec 1.0 should be passable

  2. BulletXML parsing should incur the fewest possible resources

  3. BulletXML parsing should be achieved in the shortest possible time

  4. BulletIt shall be easy to write programs that utilise TBXML

Design Goals

Performance

  1. Julien Foltz liked the performance and small footprint of TBXML so much he wanted to use it in his java projects. After translating TBXML to java, he very kindly sent me a copy for hosting on the TBXML site. Great work Julien and thanks!
