xmlpolymerase 1.1

XML (de-) serializer for simple python structures.

Overview

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)

Usage

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])])
