om (Optinionated Metadata)
A library to help you tame sprawling XML schemas like MODS.
OM allows you to define a “terminology” to ease translation between XML and ruby objects – you can query the xml for Nodes or node values without ever writing a line of XPath.
OM “terms” are ruby symbols you define (in the terminology) that map specific XML content into ruby object attributes.
Tutorials & Reference
The solrizer gem provides support for indexing XML documents into Solr based on OM Terminologies. That process is documented in the solrizer documentation
