Groups products into combos such that the cummulative price is attractive.

Project description


ComboFinder is a Python library that groups products into "combos" such that the price of the combo falls into a user defined range. Given a CSV file with product prices, ComboFinder can compute all possible combos and write these combos into a seperate csv file.


Use the package manager pip to install ComboFinder.

pip install ComboFinder


from ComboFinder import make_combos

make_combos(upper_limit = 550, lower_limit = 450, prices_csv = '/home/wwfelina/Documents/price_list.csv', LowerBound = 2, UpperBound = 4)

This will make a file called combos.csv in the working directory with all the combos.

upper_limit and lower_limit is the maximum and minimum cost of a combo.

LowerBound and UpperBound are the minimum and maximum number of items in a combo. If UpperBound and LowerBound are not declared explicitly,they'll take default values of 2 and 3 respectively.

Also, the complexity of the program is of the order n^UpperBound so Upperbound must be chosen appropriately.


Pull requests are welcome. For major changes, please open an issue first to discuss what you would like to change.
