Nice library with a very approachable documentation, congrats!
I'll probably give it a go to replace my current implementation using nokogiri-happymapper (https://github.com/mvz/happymapper)
What are some alternatives?
Nokogiri - Nokogiri (鋸) makes it easy and painless to work with XML and HTML from Ruby.
Oga - Oga is an XML/HTML parser written in Ruby.
Oj - Optimized JSON
HTML::Pipeline - HTML processing filters and utilities
ROXML - ROXML is a module for binding Ruby classes to XML. It supports custom mapping and bidirectional marshalling between Ruby and XML using annotation-style class methods, via Nokogiri or LibXML.
shale - Shale is a Ruby object mapper and serializer for JSON, YAML and XML. It allows you to parse JSON, YAML and XML data and convert it into Ruby data structures, as well as serialize data structures into JSON, YAML or XML.
Tomlrb - A Racc based TOML parser
TOML - Parse TOML. Like a bawss.
