Python Fedex module and suds SOAP library


Saw this recently on PyPI:

fedex is a Python library to use Fedex's SOAP API. It uses the suds SOAP module. Not checked it out yet, but may be to useful access Fedex info programmatically. I had investigated SOAP modules for Python some time earlier, but mostly it seemed as though none of them were actively being developed, at the time. I hadn't come across suds then.

We use suds for Russian Post tracking and it's pretty good work. I've try some othe, but suds i the best, really. Also i've make free class on GitHib - feel free to check how its work and use (if you need it of course): https://github.com/qnub/ru-post-soap-client

Two years ago one colleague searched for the best module to talk to a SOAP service from python and effectively goes for suds.

Cool, thanks for the comments, Vadim and Alex.

Just know that suds hasn't been updated in a while. I ran into a bug that had a patch submitted a while back but hadn't been integrated into the trunk yet due to a lack of test coverage to ensure things wouldn't break. There seems to be only one developer maintaining it and it's a low priority. However, with all that said, it's an awesome library that makes working with SOAP a breeze.
