In this article we will see how we can get the person information in the XML format. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. Person object contains all the information about the person which is related to film industry and has records at IMDb data base.

In order to get this we have to do the following 1. Import the IMDbPY module 2. Create an instance of IMDB 3. Get the person object with the help of get_person method which requires movie ID 4. Get the XML format value here it will be in string by converting the person object into XML

Below is the implementation 

Python3

# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "1372788"
  
# getting information
person = ia.get_person(code)
  
# printing  name
print(person['name'])
 
print("--------------------------------")
 
# converting person object into XML file
xml_file = person.asXML()
 
# printing some part of the XML file
print(xml_file[:150])

                    

Output :

Shahid Kapoor
--------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?
<!DOCTYPE person SYSTEM "http://imdbpy.sf.net/dtd/imdbpy68.dtd"

<birth-info key="bir

Another example 

Python3

# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "2690647"
  
# getting information
person = ia.get_person(code)
  
# printing  name
print(person['name'])
 
print("--------------------------------")
 
# converting person object into XML file
xml_file = person.asXML()
 
# printing some part of the XML file
print(xml_file[:250])

                    

Output :

Pankaj Tripathi
--------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0"?
<!DOCTYPE person SYSTEM "http://imdbpy.sf.net/dtd/imdbpy68.dtd"
