Tests Coverage

Since some software handling coverages sometime get slightly different results, here’s three of them:

Deflating a dictionary

A dictionary will be deflated down to its smallest non-further iterable elements, defined as those not containing lists or dictionaries.

from deflate_dict import deflate
D = {
    "a":[
        {
            "b":(0,1,2)
        },
        {
            "c": [1,2,3]
        }
    ]
}
result = deflate(D, sep="_")

# {'a_0_b': (0, 1, 2), 'a_1_c': [1, 2, 3], 'd': 4}

Inflate a dictionary

To reinflate a dictionary to its forgotten glory, just go with:

from deflate_dict import inflate
D = {"a_0_b": (0, 1, 2), "a_1_c": [1, 2, 3], "d": 4}

result = inflate(D, sep="_")

# {'a': [{'b': (0, 1, 2)}, {'c': [1, 2, 3]}], 'd': 4}

Limitations

The library, as of version 1.0.2, is unable to distinguish between reinflated numerical strings and actual numbers, since to deflate the strings the library has to convert the numbers to strings.
