A mostly-compatible implementation of Meld3 using lxml as the
parsing and serialisation engine.
I previously forked Meld3 and made it use lxml, but the code wasn’t elegant
as it didn’t use much of lxml’s additional features. This version is a
from-the-ground-up rewrite based on the Meld3 documentation and test suite.
- fillmeldhtmlform() is not implemented (it’s rather too magic)
- findwithattrib is not implemented (as unclear how it interacts with
namespaces; use lxml’s finders or xpath)
- replace() follows the meld3 syntax; the lxml call of the same name is
- The property parent doesn’t exist; use getparent()
- You can pass lxml Elements or lists of Elements to replace(),
content() and fillmelds()
- When using structure=True the content must be broadly parsable as XML
- repeat inserts adjacent to the original node, not at the end of the
- doctypes to the write_* functions can be plain strings
