Project description

This module allows for order agnostic comparison‎ of XML data. It will parse files to determine if they are a match while ignoring the order of attributes or elements .

Dependencies: ElementTree

Sample usage:

#open two files, parse with ElementTree, and pass to xml_diff function

oFile1 = open(r’C:test1.xml’, ‘r’)

oFile2 = open(r’C:test2.xml’, ‘r’)

oXml1 = ET.parse(oFile1)

oXml2 = ET.parse(oFile2)

print xml_diff(oXml1, oXml2)

#pass in xml as strings

sOrder1 = ‘<ItalianFood><Pizza Sauce=”Red” Cheese=”Mozzarella” Crust=”Thin”><Quantity>2</Quantity></Pizza><Pizza Sauce=”OliveOil” Cheese=”Feta” Crust=”Thin”><Quantity>1</Quantity></Pizza></ItalianFood>’

sOrder2 = ‘<ItalianFood><Pizza Sauce=”OliveOil” Cheese=”Feta” Crust=”Thin”><Quantity>1</Quantity></Pizza><Pizza Sauce=”Red” Cheese=”Mozzarella” Crust=”Thin”><Quantity>2</Quantity></Pizza></ItalianFood>’

print xml_diff(sOrder1, sOrder2)
