jParse is a jQuery plugin that allows you to parse XML that was fetched with the jQuery .ajax method (making it fully customizable). It's compatible with jQuery 1.4+, easy to use and ultra lightweight at only 4KB! Best of all, it's compatible with all major browsers:

  • Firefox 1.5+
  • Safari 3+
  • Chrome 3+
  • Internet Explorer 6+
  • Opera 9+


  • Select the value of any XML node or the value of a node's parameter.
  • Fully customizable HTML output.
  • Run callback functions before jParse starts and after it finishes.
  • Limit the number of <items> jParse processes.
  • Exclude XML nodes with certain words, numbers, or symbols.
  • Output the number of <item>'s in a feed anywhere in your document.
