Convenient XML creation using objects

Project description

Convert objects to XML quickly and easily.


  • Easily convert objects using an XML template.
  • Supports node lists and sub-documents.
  • Objects don’t need to know about XML paths, flat objects can become deep XML documents.
  • Dynamically inject XML at creation time.


Simple document:

from obj2xml import XML_Object, XML_Property, XML_TextProperty

class MyExampleXML(XML_Object):
    version = XML_Property(['root', 'version'], 1.0)
    test_value = XML_Property(['root', 'test-value'], 'Default Value')
    no_default_value = XML_Property(['root', 'no-default'])

    text_node = XML_TextProperty(['root', 'text-node-1'])
    manual_text_node = XML_Property(['root', 'text-node-2', '_text'])

obj = MyExampleXML()
obj.test_value = 'Another value'
obj.no_default_value = 'This value was hidden before'
obj.a_text_value = 'Over-rode the default text'
obj.text_node = 'This is some text'
obj.manual_text_node = 'This is some more text'


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<root no-default="This value was hidden before" test-value="Another value" version="1.0">
  <text-node-2>This is some more text</text-node-2>
  <text-node-1>This is some text</text-node-1>
