[DXML-29] ClojureScript support Created: 13/Nov/15 Updated: 07/Dec/16 Resolved: 07/Dec/16

Parsing XML(and HTML) is very often task and currently it requires a lot of effort and use of different libraries and wrappers around JS libs.
We can dramatically simplify it if we migrate data.xml to ClojureScript.
I'm maintaining koh library which has proof-of-concept XML support for Node and Browsers https://github.com/artemyarulin/koh/blob/master/src/koh/xml.cljs
The general idea is that we can utilise DOMParser object in order to parse string to XML tree. It has a decent browser support https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/DOMParser and has a NodeJS implementation which follows the same API https://github.com/jindw/xmldom
What do you think about this feature?

I'm working on clojurescript support in a separate branch: https://github.com/clojure/data.xml/tree/cljs

Oh, that's super cool! If you need any testing - feel free to ping me, I'll be happy to help

Thanks for the offer! In fact, the clojurescript support is in a testable state right now and I'm utilizing it for a cljs webdav library: https://github.com/webnf/davstore/blob/master/src/server/webnf/davstore/dav/xml.cljc
The main thing preventing it from being ready is, that I've utilized .cljc and reader tags. As of my last information, our CI doesn't support .cljc yet, for the test matrix and also it's unclear how to target clojure versions < 1.7
I'd be happy to the clojurescript support tested, though. We can still copy+paste into separate clj and cljs files, when we decide to release, if cljc support for contrib projects isn't ready by then.
