Using the xml library you can get any node you want from the xml file. But for extracting a given node, you'd need to know how to use xpath to get it. You can learn more about XPath here:https://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_xpath.asp.
For example, assume you have a xml file with following structure,
<bookstore> <book category="cooking"> <title lang="en">Everyday Italian</title> <author>Giada De Laurentiis</author> <year>2005</year> <price>30.00</price> </book> <book category="children"> <title lang="en">Harry Potter</title> <author>J K. Rowling</author> <year>2005</year> <price>29.99</price> </book> </bookstore>
And you want to extract all title nodes with lang attribute en, then you'd have the code −
from xml.etree.ElementTree import ElementTree tree = ElementTree() root = tree.parse("my_file.xml") for node in root.findall("//title[@lang='en']"): for type in node.getchildren(): print(type.text)
