Simple Python Library to convert JSON to XML

Features

It lets you convert json to xml in following ways:

  • from a json string
  • from a json file
  • from an API that emits json data

Usage

The usage is simple:

from json2xml import json2xml
from json2xml.utils import readfromurl, readfromstring, readfromjson

# get the xml from an URL that return json
data = readfromurl("https://coderwall.com/vinitcool76.json")
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data).to_xml())

# get the xml from a json string
data = readfromstring(
    '{"login":"mojombo","id":1,"avatar_url":"https://avatars0.githubusercontent.com/u/1?v=4"}'
)
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data).to_xml())

# get the data from an URL
data = readfromjson("examples/licht.json")
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data).to_xml())

Custom Wrappers and indent

By default, a wrapper all and pretty True is set. However, you can change this easily in your code like this:

from json2xml import json2xml
from json2xml.utils import readfromurl, readfromstring, readfromjson
data = readfromstring(
    '{"login":"mojombo","id":1,"avatar_url":"https://avatars0.githubusercontent.com/u/1?v=4"}'
)
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data, wrapper="all", pretty=True).to_xml())

Outputs this:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<all>
  <login type="str">mojombo</login>
  <id type="int">1</id>
  <avatar_url type="str">https://avatars0.githubusercontent.com/u/1?v=4</avatar_url>
</all>

Optional Attribute Type Support

Now, we can also specify if the output xml needs to have type specified or not. Here is the usage:

from json2xml import json2xml
from json2xml.utils import readfromurl, readfromstring, readfromjson
data = readfromstring(
    '{"login":"mojombo","id":1,"avatar_url":"https://avatars0.githubusercontent.com/u/1?v=4"}'
)
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data, wrapper="all", pretty=True, attr_type=False).to_xml())

Outputs this:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<all>
  <login>mojombo</login>
  <id>1</id>
  <avatar_url>https://avatars0.githubusercontent.com/u/1?v=4</avatar_url>
</all>

The methods are simple and easy to use and there are also checks inside of code to exit cleanly in case any of the input(file, string or API URL) returns invalid JSON.
