In this Python XML tutorial, you will learn how to use
xml.etree.ElementTree package (which is one of the many Python XML parsers) to process XML response.
For this tutorial, you can use your own XML response or follow the steps below and use the one I have provided.
The Python XML parsing steps I’m about to explain and guide you through were developed alongside a refund payment integration I was working on in Django.
We’re going to explore the parsing end result for the SOAP XML response I wrote about in the previous post. The SOAP XML parsing post was written with a focus on an actual regex parsing in Python and all the steps before you get to the actual XML scheme style response.
In this post, I’m about to give you a Python XML tutorial for parsing XML schemes when you already have a decoded version of an XML response and you see the information.
The post here is about extracting specific values from the whole XML tree without using regex or any other typical Python parsing tools, but the actual
xml.etree.ElementTree package (the right way)
By the way, Roberts Greibers here – in my day job, I’m working as a Python Django backend developer for a local company in Riga, Latvia, and building a white label payment gateway platform.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve gathered a lot of experience in the FinTech industry, practical knowledge of how payment systems work, how to develop, test and deploy them with minimal headache.
Of course, I can’t go into too much detail here in a single blog post, but if you want to build your own portfolio project and become a Python and Django developer, I’d suggest checking out client testimonials here and reaching out to me.
I go very deep and always explain all the steps in detail with specific videos and documents for my clients. So the post here is just a small example of how I could help you out.
Also, I always answer all client questions along the way.. but enough of talking, let’s get into the code.Continue reading
