I'm proud to announce that std.experimental.xml v0.1.0 is available on DUB [1]!

This is the project I'm working on for GSoC 2016. It aims to become a substitution for Phobos std.xml. Now you can easily try it and provide some feedback. I will soon create a WIP PR on the Phobos repository.

I suggest you to depend on ~master instead of v0.1.0, as bugfixes and enhancements are added on a daily basis (v0.1.0 is already one commit behind!)

Current limitations:
1) The documentation [2] is very limited;
2) Some advanced DOM methods are not completely implemented;
3) Some advanced features (e.g. DTD validation, namespace checks) are not yet available.

If you find any issue / have any suggestion, please file an issue on Github [3].

Thank you.

I have two comments.

What is the plan for the string interner and the allocator-based appender ?

They are neither part of the package, nor proposed in phobos, it seems that you'll encounter a problme in the package structure itself. This is also problemtaic now if I want to test it I have to add 3 import paths to sc.conf.

I suggest you either to propose them for phobos or to add them in a subpackage "internal" **inside xml** (or in a big internal.d module) like it's done for several phobos packages (algos, ndslices).


I see a naming problem in you "fast" strings: fastIndexOf, fastEqual etc.

This is not good: does it mean that phobos's equivalent are slow ? Does it mean that you'll also propose slow equivalents (This is absurd, but it shows the problem).
