Get the parsed microsoft word document in a hierarchical tree structure.

Project description


Parse your whole word document in a hierarchical tree structure. The document content will be listed down as Heading and its children as subheading/paragraph/table etc.

Install the library using following comand

pip install mswordtree

Use the following code to parse your word document in a tree structure

from mswordtree import GetWordDocTree
root = GetWordDocTree('test.docx')

Now you can iterate over all objects of the document by using the following code

for item in root.Items:
    print('Type: {} -> Content {}\n'.format(item.Type, item.Content))

To make the json use the following code

from mswordtree import ToString

Common Methods


Use the root element to find any element in its tree structure by mathing its GUID.

item = root.Find('3b34509b-533e-40cc-b0dc-c44df5bcba51')


Returns the string of all heading elements in a tree structure, which we can use as a json string.

from mswordtree import ToString_AllHeadings
import json

data = ToString_AllHeadings(root)
