jxmlease Version: 1.0.1


jxmlease converts between XML and intelligent Python data structures.

For a quick start, you can use the parse() method to convert a block of XML to a Python data structure. This example parses xml and uses the XMLDictNode.prettyprint() method to display the result:

>>> xml = "<a><b><c>foo</c><c>bar</c></b></a>"
>>> parse(xml).prettyprint()
{u'a': {u'b': {u'c': [u'foo', u'bar']}}}

Or, you can use the XMLDictNode class to convert a Python data structure to an intelligent XML data structure. The following example creates an XMLDictNode object from data_structure and outputs the resulting XML using the XMLNodeBase.emit_xml() method:

>>> data_structure = {u'a': {u'b': {u'c': [u'foo', u'bar']}}}
>>> print XMLDictNode(data_structure).emit_xml()
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
