Project description


Brabbel is a small python based expression language which can be used to evaluate simple expressions.

Brabbel provides the following set of features:

  • Values: Strings, Numbers, Variables , Lists

  • simple arithmetic operations: + - / *

  • simple equation : < > <= >= == !=

  • simple bool operation: and or not

  • function calls: date, bool

  • other: check if values is _in_ a list

Brabbel is the german term for the first “language” of a baby and emphasises the reduced coverage of this language. 0.3.0 ===== Make Brabbel Python3 compatible. Added python-future package as dependency

  • Added more tests.


  • Compatiblity: Allow “-” in variable names.

  • Fixed strip of “’” in “len” function.


  • Allow empty strings

  • Fix bool function

  • Allow lists as param for functions
