Auto allocation dict and list

Project description


This is auto allocate dict and list like Perl.

import autodata

d = autodata.autodict()
d["key1"]["key2"] = "val" # => d["key1"] == {"key2": "val"}
d["key2"] += 1            # => d["key2"] == 1
d["key3"][2] = 1          # => d["key3"] == [None, None, 1]


  • The type of dict key is only strings.

  • Dict item is not allocated by dict.get method.

  • None value is not returned by autolist[number]. Instead, an emptyitem object is returned.

Known issues

d = autodata.autodict()
a = d["key"]
a += 1  # => d == {"key" : 1}
a += 1  # => d == {"key" : 1}
