Just want to share this:
I was unsatisfied with PyTMX. I found it overly complex. So, I wrote a much simpler TMX library for Python. It doesn’t try to integrate into any particular library or hold your hand with high-level functions; it just gives you the data from the TMX so you can choose what you want to do with it.
If you needed to integrate TMX with some Python project, you may find this useful, as it takes care of all of the XML parsing and whatnot. It’s under the Apache License.
