Simple Python Library to convert JSON to XML

Update

The dict2xml project has been integrated in the project itself. This helped with cleaning up the code and making improvements. Long term goal for the project is to reduce the number of dependencies.

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>

Omit List item

Assume the following json input

{
  "my_items": [
    { "my_item": { "id": 1 } },
    { "my_item": { "id": 2 } }
  ],
  "my_str_items": ["a", "b"]
}

By default, items in an array are wrapped in <item></item>.

Default output:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<all>
  <my_items type="list">
    <item type="dict">
      <my_item type="dict">
        <id type="int">1</id>
      </my_item>
    </item>
    <item type="dict">
      <my_item type="dict">
        <id type="int">2</id>
      </my_item>
    </item>
  </my_items>
  <my_str_items type="list">
    <item type="str">a</item>
    <item type="str">b</item>
  </my_str_items>
  <empty type="list"/>
</all>

However, you can change this behavior using the item_wrap property like this:

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

data = readfromstring('{"my_items":[{"my_item":{"id":1} },{"my_item":{"id":2} }],"my_str_items":["a","b"]}')
print(json2xml.Json2xml(data, item_wrap=False).to_xml())

Outputs this:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<all>
  <my_items type="list">
    <my_item type="dict">
      <id type="int">1</id>
    </my_item>
    <my_item type="dict">
      <id type="int">2</id>
    </my_item>
  </my_items>
  <my_str_items type="str">a</my_str_items>
  <my_str_items type="str">b</my_str_items>
</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.

Testing

This is provided by pytest, which is straight forward.

virtualenv venv -p $(which python3.9)
pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
python setup.py install
pytest
