Parsing

Input data is not limited to JSON or XML. It's totally up to user what data can be used to update database. Even getting data from html like scraper is totally perfect. As database write rules are separated from input data then only thing you must do is write parser that gets input string and results table formatted javascript object. Easiest parser is JSON parser:

result(JSON.parse(input))

What to update, delete or insert is up to write rules. Example how to configure parsers directory:

zazler.conf({ parsers: [ "/home/me/parsers" ] });

Parsers follow same principles as templates. You must define where your custom parsers are and you can provide functions with side-effects from nodejs.
