Python package to deflate and re-inflate dictionaries.

How do I get this?

As usual, just get it from pip:

pip install deflate_dict

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}
