Convert strings to snakecase

Project description

PyPI CircleCI Codecov

Boa is a Python package for normalizing and converting strings to snakecase.

For example, it translates the user-defined event 'User Buys Item' to 'user_buys_item' which can then be used in a file path in S3, or as the name of a schema or table in Redshift.

It also handles the more complex cases such as stripping punctuation and converting words from camelCase or PascalCase to snake_case (see examples below).


Install in your virtual environment:

$ pip install boa-str


>>> import boa
>>> my_str = 'Hello Boa'
>>> boa.constrict(my_str)


>>> import boa
>>> boa.constrict('toInfinityAndBeyond')
>>> boa.constrict('Welcome-to-planet-Earth!')


We use nose2 and coverage for unit tests.

Install with test requirements:

$ pip install boa-str[test]

Then run:

$ invoke test


$ invoke lint


Clone the repo, then install with dev requirements which also includes test requirements:

$ git clone
$ cd boa
$ pip install .[dev]
