What is lxml?

lxml is the most feature-rich and easy-to-use library for processing XML and HTML in the Python language. It's also very fast and memory friendly, just so you know.

For an introduction and further documentation, see doc/main.txt.

For installation information, see INSTALL.txt.

Support the project

lxml has been downloaded from the Python Package Index more than two million times and is also available directly in many package distributions, e.g. for Linux or MacOS-X.

Most people who use lxml do so because they like using it. You can show us that you like it by blogging about your experience with it and linking to the project website.

If you are using lxml for your work and feel like giving a bit of your own benefit back to support the project, consider sending us money through PayPal that we can use for fixing bugs in the software and improving its features and documentation. Please read the Legal Notice below, at the bottom of this page. Thank you for your support.
