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]( The results of the code below can be seen by running [``]( directly.

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

Which will output:

PS [34] master -> python .\

['44.95', '5.95', '5.95', '5.95', '5.95', '4.95', '4.95', '4.95', '6.95', '36.95', '36.95', '49.95']

## 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?
