Unstruct

We have just released the very first version of unstruct, v0.1.3. Unstruct is an Open Source program that parses simple XML files into text files, suitable for bulk inserts into a relational database. It is written in Rust and the goal is to be more performant than loading XML into the database and doing the parsing there. As an example, on a recent MacBook Pro unstruct is capable of parsing 10 000 CDR (call detail record) XML files per second.

The release notes are as follows:
This is the very first release of unstruct. Expect bugs. Read the code in place of missing docs.

The code and binaries can be found on GitHub:
https://github.com/Roenbaeck/unstruct

Feel free to fork and help out! We need help:

  • Testing different XML files (very early stages of development).
  • Making it more robust (there’s practically no error handling).
  • Improving it in terms of performance and functionality.
