Build Status PyPI version

wpparser

This library parses Wordpress xml based exports into a simple python dictionary.

How it works

The library uses ElementTree to traverse through the export file.

Usage

import wpparser

data = wpparser.parse("./blog.wordpress.2014-09-26.xml")
>>> {"blog": {"tagline": "Tagline",...

What it returns

It returns a well formatted dict, containing the following datatypes:

  • Blog: The general blog information, such as tagline, site url.
  • Authors: A list with the different authors.
  • Categories: The categories in use, organized as a nested array.
  • Tags: A list with the different tags.
  • Posts: An array that contains all posts, the post object might also contain the different comments belonging to the post.

    "blog": {
        "tagline": "Tagline",
