JSON

books = JSONXPath.parse(json)

# Find authors of all books in the store
list = books.xpath_nodes("store/book/*/author")
# OR
# list = books.xpath_nodes("//author")

list.each { |a| puts a.content }
# => Nigel Rees
# => Evelyn Waugh
# => Herman Melville
# => J. R. R. Tolkien

# Find the Third book
book = books.xpath("//book/*[3]")
book.try &.children.each { |a| puts "#{a.data} : #{a.content}" }

# => author : Herman Melville
# => category : fiction
# => isbn : 0-553-21311-3
# => price : 8.99
# => title : Moby Dick

# Find the last book
book = books.xpath("//book/*[last()]")
book.try &.children.each { |a| puts "#{a.data} : #{a.content}" }

# =>  author : J. R. R. Tolkien
# =>  category : fiction
# =>  isbn : 0-395-19395-8
# =>  price : 22.99
# =>  title : The Lord of the Rings

# Find all books with isbn number
list = books.xpath_nodes("//book/*[isbn]")
puts list.size # => 2

# Find all books cheaper than 10
list = books.xpath_nodes("//book/*[price<10]")
puts list.size # => 2
