Compress lists of integers to range objects

## Project description

GitHub | PyPI | Issues | Changelog

Do you have a list of integers? Do you want to know what ranges of consecutive
values the list covers? Do you need to solve a gaps and islands problem outside of
SQL? Maybe you have a list of dates and need to find the longest streak of
consecutive days on which something happened. No? Why not? Well, either way,
the `derange` module is here for you, ready to solve all these problems and a
couple more.

## Installation

`derange` requires Python 3.6 or higher. Just use pip for Python 3 (You have pip, right?) to install:

python3 -m pip install derange

## Examples

Condense commit years obtained from `git log` or the like into `range`
objects:

>>> import derange >>> derange.derange([2015, 2015, 2015, 2014, 2014, 2011, 2010, 2010, 2009, 2009]) [range(2009, 2012), range(2014, 2016)]

If the input is already sorted, you can condense it slightly faster with
`derange_sorted()`:

>>> derange.derange_sorted([2009, 2009, 2010, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2014, 2015, 2015, 2015]) [range(2009, 2012), range(2014, 2016)]

Organize non-integer values into closed intervals (represented as pairs of
endpoints) with `deinterval()`:

>>> import datetime >>> # deinterval() requires a callable for determining when two values are "adjacent": >>> def within_24_hours(a,b): ... return abs(a-b) <= datetime.timedelta(hours=24) ... >>> timestamps = [ ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 2, 12, 0), ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 3, 11, 0), ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 4, 10, 0), ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 5, 9, 0), ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 6, 9, 0), ... datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 7, 10, 0), ... ] >>> derange.deinterval(within_24_hours, timestamps) [(datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 2, 12, 0), datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 6, 9, 0)), (datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 7, 10, 0), datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 7, 10, 0))]

… which also has a `deinterval_sorted()` variant:

>>> derange.deinterval_sorted(within_24_hours, timestamps) [(datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 2, 12, 0), datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 6, 9, 0)), (datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 7, 10, 0), datetime.datetime(2017, 11, 7, 10, 0))] >>> derange.deinterval_sorted(within_24_hours, reversed(timestamps)) Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: sequence not in ascending order

## API

derange.derange(iterable: Iterable[int]) -> List[range]

Convert a sequence of integers to a minimal list of `range` objects that
together contain all of the input elements.

Output is in strictly ascending order. Input need not be in order (but see
also `derange_sorted()`). Duplicate input values are ignored.

derange.derange_sorted(iterable: Iterable[int]) -> List[range]

Convert a *non-decreasing* sequence of integers to a minimal list of `range`
objects that together contain all of the input elements. This is faster than
`derange()` but only accepts sorted input.

derange.deinterval( adjacent: Callable[[T,T], bool], iterable: Iterable[T], ) -> List[Tuple[T,T]]

Convert a sequence of totally-ordered values to a minimal list of closed
intervals (represented as pairs of endpoints) that together contain all of the
input elements. This is a generalization of `derange()` for arbitrary types.

Two input values will be placed in the same interval iff they are directly
adjacent or there exists a chain of adjacent input values connecting them,
where adjacency is defined by the given `adjacent` callable.

`adjacent` will be called with two elements of `iterable` at a time to test
whether they should be placed in the same interval. The binary relation
implied by `adjacent` must be reflexive and symmetric, and for all `x < y <
z`, if `adjacent(x, z)` is true, then both `adjacent(x, y)` and
`adjacent(y, z)` must also be true.

Output is in strictly ascending order. Input need not be in order (but see
also `deinterval_sorted()`). Duplicate input values are ignored.

Note that, unlike with `range` objects, intervals returned from
`deinterval()` contain their upper bounds.

derange.deinterval_sorted( adjacent: Callable[[T,T], bool], iterable: Iterable[T], ) -> List[Tuple[T,T]]

Convert a *non-decreasing* sequence of totally-ordered values to a minimal list
of closed intervals that together contain all of the input elements. This is
faster than `deinterval()` but only accepts sorted input.
