dict_dot_notate turns nested dictionary keys to dotted strings with their corresponding values into a basic dictionary.

Installation

pip install dict-dot-notate

Usage

from dot_notate.dot import dict_dot_notate

Example

data = {
"obj": "obj",
"nested_once": {"first": "first"},
"nested_twice": {
    "twice": {"inner_nest": {"second": "second"}}
},
"nested_thrice": {
    "thrice": {"second_nest": {"tripple_nest": {"tripple": "thrice"}, "three": "three"}}
}
}

call the relevant method to convert our dict

    result = dict_dot_notate(data)

output

  {
    'obj': 'obj',
    'nested_once.first': 'first',
    'nested_twice.twice.inner_nest.second': 'second',
    'nested_thrice.thrice.second_nest.tripple_nest.tripple': 'thrice', 
    'nested_thrice.thrice.second_nest.three': 'three'
    }

If a dict passed in has a list value, Then the output will be as below

Example

data = {
"obj": "obj",
"nested_once": {"first": "first"},
"nested_twice": {
    "twice": {"inner_nest": [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]}
}
}

conversion

result = dict_dot_notate(data)

output

{
'obj': 'obj',
'nested_once.first': 'first',
'nested_twice.twice.inner_nest': [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
}

Don't pass in a list of dictionaries.
