Allows investigation and manipulation of XML data with objects.

Project description


Makes managing XML a lot easier by making an XML document look like nested Python objects.

## Installing

Install via `pip`:

pip install xml-objects

## Usage

See [sample.xml](sample.xml) for the structure used in these examples. Taken unashamedly from Microsoft's [Sample XML](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms762271.aspx). The results of the code below can be seen by running [`xml_node.py`](xml_node.py) directly.

```python
xml = XMLNode.from_file('sample.xml')
print(xml.book.price)
for book in xml.book:
print(f"{book.title.value}, {book.author.value}, {book.price.value}")
```

Which will output:

```
PS [34] master -> python .\xml_node.py

## Future Ideas

- Script to drop into a shell with the functionality of XMLNode. Optionally, with an argument to pre-load an XML file.
- The `__str__` method should probably print out available child-nodes for ease of exploration.
- Open from URL?
