A modern/fast Python SOAP client based on lxml / requests

Project description

A fast and hip Python SOAP client ;-)

IRC: #python-zeep on Freenode
  • Modern codebase compatible with Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 and PyPy

  • Build on top of lxml and requests

  • Supports recursive WSDL and XSD documents.

  • Supports the xsd:choice and xsd:any elements.

  • Uses the defusedxml module for handling potential XML security issues

  • Support for WSSE (UsernameToken only for now)

  • Experimental support for HTTP bindings

  • Experimental support for WS-Addressing headers

Features still in development include:
  • WSSE x.509 support (BinarySecurityToken)

  • XML validation using lxml XMLSchema’s

  • WS Policy support

Please see for more information the documentation at


pip install zeep


from zeep import Client

client = Client('tests/wsdl_files/example.rst')

To quickly inspect a WSDL file use:

python -mzeep <url-to-wsdl>

Please see the documentation at for more information.


If you encounter bugs then please let me know . A copy of the WSDL file if possible would be most helpful.

I’m also able to offer commercial support. Please contact me at for more information.
