What is XML and what is it used for?
The Extensible Markup Language (XML) defines a set of rules for encoding documents. This technology is commonly used for serialization, storing data, and transmitting data.
In this article, we will explore some properties of XML, its importance, and how to use our XML Minifier. You may also want to check out our XML Beautifier tool.
XML Scale and Network problems
XML may be simple and easy-to-use, but it wasn't built use in such large scale of today's web applications, neither for their data complexity. It can cause several problems like:
- Difficulties with data validation
- Nesting data in a tree structure
- Really large files for big amounts of data
These unnecessarily large files can have a negative, impact on your users' download experience. If you are using XML for setup, it can even prevent users from using your app. That's exactly where code minification comes into play!
Code minification and XML Minifier
XML Minify is a technique that reduces the size of your markup files. It's often used to reduce the file size so that it can be downloaded faster, which prevents network issues.
The minification process consists of removing all unnecessary spaces, line breaks, characters, and other elements. This aims to reduce the size of a markup file as much as possible without changing its functionality.
When generating files for a production build, you should apply the minification process to reduce the size of your XML markup files and impprove the download experience for your users. It can be achieved by applying tools like Node Minify.
