Because this project isn't in the
no releases from root/pypi are included.
lxml is a Pythonic, mature binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries. It provides safe and convenient access to these libraries using the ElementTree API.
It extends the ElementTree API significantly to offer support for XPath, RelaxNG, XML Schema, XSLT, C14N and much more.
In case you want to use the current in-development version of lxml, you can get it from the github repository at https://github.com/lxml/lxml . Note that this requires Cython to build the sources, see the build instructions on the project home page. To the same end, running easy_install lxml==dev will install lxml from https://github.com/lxml/lxml/tarball/master#egg=lxml-dev if you have an appropriate version of Cython installed.
After an official release of a new stable series, bug fixes may become available at https://github.com/lxml/lxml/tree/lxml-4.8 . Running easy_install lxml==4.8bugfix will install the unreleased branch state from https://github.com/lxml/lxml/tarball/lxml-4.8#egg=lxml-4.8bugfix as soon as a maintenance branch has been established. Note that this requires Cython to be installed at an appropriate version for the build.
- GH#337: Path-like objects are now supported throughout the API instead of just strings. Patch by Henning Janssen.
- The ElementMaker now supports QName values as tags, which always override the default namespace of the factory.
- GH#338: In lxml.objectify, the XSI float annotation “nan” and “inf” were spelled in lower case, whereas XML Schema datatypes define them as “NaN” and “INF” respectively. Patch by Tobias Deiminger.
- Built with Cython 0.29.28.
