I am new to this community and I have moderate knowledge of python programming.
I was quickly referring some functions at http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/api-reference but couldn't figure out how to grab entire file in variable. I need to create a plugin to convert xml file to text list.
I know how to read dom using python's xml.dom.minidom module.
 Only the problem is to get entire xml file into variable.
After then it's easy to get text nodes.
- Code: Select all
from xml.dom.minidom import parse, parseString
dom = parseString(xml_string)
for entries in dom.getElementsByTagName('url'):
... # node processing
 And once processing is done, replace entire xml content with new text list.
Please guide me for these (point 1,2) missing functions.
