MEDLINEXMLToJSON

MEDLINEXMLToJSON is a Node.js application designed for MEDLINE®/PubMed® Data licensees to download and convert the MEDLINE®/PubMed® XML data into a JSON format.

We are in no way affiliated with MEDLINE® or PubMed®. We're only a MEDLINE® licensed library that want to share this software with the public so that anyone with a MEDLINE license can easier utilize MEDLINE® metadata for improving healthcare.

Wikipedia has an article regarding MEDLINE® here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEDLINE and PubMed here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PubMed

The U.S. National Library of Medicine have a page about MEDLINE® here http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/factsheets/medline.html

It's developed for the 2014 version of the MEDLINE® XML DTD (Document type definition).

Dependencies

The only dependency is the XML parser sax by Isaac Z. Schlueter.

Installation

npm install medlinexmltojson

Example usage

Simple example

var medline2json = require("medlinexmltojson");

medline2json.parse("myxmlfile.xml", function(err, json) {
	// err is a string saying what's wrong. It's null if there's not an error.
	// json is the json string. It's null if there's an error.
});

Stream example

var medline2json = require("medlinexmltojson"),
	fs = require("fs");

medline2json.parse(fs.createReadStream("./myxmlfile.xml"), function(err, json) {
	// err is a string saying what's wrong. It's null if there's not an error.
	// json is the json string. It's null if there's an error.
});

Stream example with gzipping

var medline2json = require("medlinexmltojson"),
	fs = require("fs"),
	zlib = require('zlib'),
	gzip = zlib.createGunzip();

medline2json.parse(fs.createReadStream("./myxmlfile.xml.gz").pipe(gzip), function(err, json) {
	// err is a string saying what's wrong. It's null if there's not an error.
	// json is the json string. It's null if there's an error.
});

Continous "streaming" of JSON example

var medline2json = require("medlinexmltojson");

medline2json.parse("myxmlfile.xml", true, function(err, json) {
	// Callback will be run as many times as there are MEDLINE data in the XML file.
});
