Fix Python – Python xml ElementTree from a string source?


Asked By – George

The ElementTree.parse reads from a file, how can I use this if I already have the XML data in a string?

Maybe I am missing something here, but there must be a way to use the ElementTree without writing out the string to a file and reading it again.


Now we will see solution for issue: Python xml ElementTree from a string source?


If you’re using xml.etree.ElementTree.parse to parse from a file, then you can use xml.etree.ElementTree.fromstring to get the root Element of the document. Often you don’t actually need an ElementTree.

See xml.etree.ElementTree
