Usage

(See and run examples.py or this blog post: Read XML painlessly for more info)

import untangle
obj = untangle.parse(resource)

resource can be:

  • a URL
  • a filename
  • an XML string

Running the above code and passing this XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<root>
    <child name="child1"/>
</root>

allows it to be navigated from the untangled object like this:

obj.root.child['name'] # u'child1'
