A lightweight library for working with Akoma Ntoso Act documents

Project Description

Cobalt is a lightweight Python library for working with Akoma Ntoso Act documents. It makes it easy to work with Akoma Ntoso metadata, FRBR URIs and generate Tables of Contents for a document.

It is lightweight because most operations are done on the XML document directly without intermediate objects. You still need to understand how Akoma Ntoso works.

Read the full documentation at cobalt.readthedocs.org.

Quickstart

Install using:

$ pip install cobalt

Use it like this:

>>> from cobalt import Act
>>> act = Act()
>>> act.title = "Act 10 of 1980"
>>> act.frbr_uri = "/za/act/1980/10"
>>> act.year
'1980'
>>> act.number
'10'
>>> print act.to_xml()
[ lots of xml ]
