python lxml add element

Postby mah454 » Mon Jun 17, 2013 5:27 am

Hello .
This is my xml file :
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


How can add new element to interfaces ? for example add <eth2> .
I use lxml module for reading xml file :

Code: Select all
from lxml import etree , objectify

tree = etree.parse('config.xml')
root = tree.getroot()

print etree.tostring(root,  pretty_print=True)

I'm not familiar with lxml, but this looks like what you want.
Code: Select all
>>> html = etree.Element("html")
>>> body = etree.SubElement(html, "body")       # The body tag is added inside of the html tag (i think)
>>> body.text = "TEXT"                                   # The string 'TEXT' is added inside the body tag

>>> etree.tostring(html)

If you have further questions, here are the docs:
