What is DDEX?

DDEX is a standard for the exchange of data between parties. Data specifically for digitial content supply chains. Think of it as the metadata standard for describing how digital content is distributed around to the services that supply the world with movies, music, and multimedia.

So what can I do with this library?

Install it and use it in a server-side api for validating and creating DDEX documents and schemas, or for a batch processing service that's transforming data from one multimedia metadata content standard to another. This library should support all DDEX content standards that python can parse.
