Index XML files

Hello Splunkers. I'm trying to build a modular-input to index my XML files, using Python. I will wonder if some one can help me with the pithon file.
Thanks in advance

To build modular inputs in Python have a look at http://dev.splunk.com/view/python-sdk/SP-CAAAER3

However you may be able to achieve what you need without building a modular input, for example if the XML is created as a file in a directory, you could poll the file and index the XML without needing to create the modular input. Also looking at Splunkbase (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/) there are several technical methods to collect data, i.e. JMS, MQTT, AMQP, etc that you may also be able to use.
