Set of Xpath2 functions which you can register in lxml. User register all or chosen functions and use them in own xpaths. Xpaths are accessible under default namespace: or empty namespace if needed.



from lxml import etree
import xpath2_functions

# registering all available functions in default namespace

# registering chosen functions in the empty namespace
xpath2_functions.register_functions(etree, ns=None, functions=['string-join'])


  • string-join (arg1 as xs:string, arg2 as xs:string) - returns an arg1 created by concatenating the members of the $arg1 sequence using $arg2 as a separator. If the value of $arg2 is the zero-length string, then the members of $arg1 are concatenated without a separator.
  • lower-case (arg1 as xs:string) - returns an arg1 converted to lower-cased string.


  • Kamil Kujawinski
  • Mathieu Leduc-Hamel (xpath functions: lower-case)
