MangoEngine is a lightweight library for creating generic data models in Python.

Project description

MangoEngine is a lightweight library for creating generic data models in Python.

class City(Model):
    name = StringField()
    officials = DictField(
        of_key = StringField(),
        of_value = StringField()
    population = IntegerField(bounds = (0, None))

The models you create with MangoEngine are self-documenting and simple to create. Even better, you can populate them from unreliable sources and validate them to ensure your data is sane.

>>> city = City.from_dict({
...     "name": 12,
...     "officials": {1: 2},
...     "population": "alot"
... })
>>> city.validate()
ValidationError: For field 'name': expecting instance of basestring, got int.

You can leverage this library to create your own light-weight ORM for your application regardless of what your backing store is, without abstracting away important details like queries.

How do I use it?

You can install MangoEngine using pip by running pip install mangoengine.

For references and tutorials, see our documentation on ReadTheDocs.

About the Project

This library started as a means to create models for JSON objects, but has since evolved into a more general purpose library. Its interface is inspired by the fantastic MongoEngine library (thus its name). It was created by John Sullivan and he would greatly appreciate any contributions.
