XML (de-) serializer for simple python structures.
xmlpolymerase is a simple powerful serializer and deserializer for python-structures into XML. Possible structures are string, int, float, bool, list and dict.
The primary function of a polymerase is the polymerization of new DNA or RNA against an existing DNA or RNA template in the processes of replication and transcription. (Cite: Wikipeadia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymerase)
This is a pure python module. The API is pretty simple, for more read the docstrings, an exampkle follows:
>>> from odict import OrderedDict >>> teststructure = OrderedDict() >>> teststructure['one'] = 'Eins' >>> teststructure['two'] = 'Zwei' >>> teststructure['three'] = 'Drei' >>> teststructure['four'] = [True, 2, '3-2', 42.23] >>> domnode = serialize(structure, nodename='object') >>> print domnode.toprettyxml() <object> <one> Eins </one> <two> Zwei </two> <three> Drei </three> <four type="list"> <entry type="bool"> True </entry> <entry type="int"> 2 </entry> <entry> 3-2 </entry> <entry type="float"> 42.23 </entry> </four> </object> <BLANKLINE>
>>> structure = deserialze(domnode) OrderedDict([('one', 'Eins'), ('two', 'Zwei'), ('three', 'Drei'), ('four', [True, 2, '3-2', 23.42])])
