A lightweight SAX-style XML parser.


  • Read and write XML files
  • Attributes, empty elements, and comments supported
  • Pretty formatted writing
  • Lightweight and kept simple, hence the name "Derp"
  • Example usage scripts
  • Written in pure GML
  • Free and open source: Github repo


  • Does not validate (detect errors in) read XML files. But this makes the code simpler.
  • Not as powerful as DOM parsers. But it's good for simple tasks.

A note about other XML assets

I made DerpXml because I needed an free, open-source XML parser to use in my free, open-source level editor. I don't mean to steal business from other assets. DerpXml is SAX-styled, while the other paid assets on the marketplace are DOM-styled and inherently much more powerful. There are a few very high-quality assets out there; go check them out real quick if you haven't already.


DerpXml doesn't have any maintenance costs, and I'm fortunate enough to not need financial help at the moment. But if DerpXml was really helpful to you, consider donating a few dollars to someone else who made something for free on the internet and could use the support.
