How to convert JSON to XML format in Python

I don’t need to explain why JSON to XML conversion is an important feature for many different apps. Rather, you need me to tell you how to inject this ability straight into your project without spending all day or breaking your existing code. That answer is easy, let’s use an API.

Pip install comes first.

pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client

From there, we can proceed with this API instancing and function call:

from __future__ import print_functionimport timeimport cloudmersive_convert_api_clientfrom cloudmersive_convert_api_client.rest import ApiExceptionfrom pprint import pprint# Configure API key authorization: Apikeyconfiguration = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.Configuration()configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'# create an instance of the API classapi_instance = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ConvertDataApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))json_object = NULL # object | Input JSON to convert to XMLtry:# Convert JSON to XML conversionapi_response = api_instance.convert_data_json_to_xml(json_object)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling ConvertDataApi->convert_data_json_to_xml: %s\n" % e)

And that’s seriously all you have to do. Input your JSON, kick back, and relax. The API will convert it and you’ll have your XML file in no time.
