Please see for more information the documentation at


I consider this library to be stable. Since no new developments happen around the SOAP specification it won't be updated that much. Good PR's which fix bugs are always welcome however.


pip install zeep

Note that the latest version to support Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 is Zeep 3.4, install via pip install zeep==3.4.0

Zeep uses the lxml library for parsing xml. See for the installation requirements.


from zeep import Client

client = Client('tests/wsdl_files/example.rst')

To quickly inspect a WSDL file use:

python -m zeep <url-to-wsdl>

Please see the documentation at for more information.
