This turns an R list into the equivalent XML document. Not all R lists will produce valid XML, in particular there can only be one root node and all child nodes need to be named (or empty) lists. R attributes become XML attributes and R names become XML node names.

as_xml_document(x, ...)

Arguments

x

A document, node, or node set.

...

Needed for compatibility with generic. Unused.

Examples

as_xml_document(list(x = list()))
#> {xml_document} #> <x>
# Nesting multiple nodes as_xml_document(list(foo = list(bar = list(baz = list()))))
#> {xml_document} #> <foo> #> [1] <bar>\n <baz/>\n</bar>
# attributes are stored as R attributes as_xml_document(list(foo = structure(list(), id = "a")))
#> {xml_document} #> <foo id="a">
as_xml_document(list(foo = list( bar = structure(list(), id = "a"), bar = structure(list(), id = "b"))))
#> {xml_document} #> <foo> #> [1] <bar id="a"/> #> [2] <bar id="b"/>
