Description : Erlang/Elixir XMPP parsing and serialization library
This library provides comprehensive representation of XMPP elements as
well as tools to work with them. Every such element is represented by an
Erlang record. Most of the library's code is auto generated and thus
considered to be bug free and efficient.
The approach is very similar to ASN.1, Google Protocol Buffers or Apache
Thrift: an XML element is transformed into internal language structure
(an Erlang record in our case) - the process known as "decoding". During
decoding, validation is also performed, thus well-typed structures are
generated, potentially decreasing bugs related to handcrafted parsing. A
reverse process known as "encoding" is applied for transforming an
Erlang record into an XML element.
This package should be used along with erlang-p1-xml, because it is
only able to decode from and encode to structures generated by that
library (that is, xmlel() elements).
This library was written for ejabberd which still uses it.
It was split off into it's own project to follow
