Dictionary with case-insensitive keys

Project Description

dicti is a dictionary with case-insensitive keys.

It works like the normal dict except that key matching is case-insensitive.

Instantiate like you would instantiate a normal dict; for example, these work.

dict(foo = ‘bar’, answer = 42) dicti(foo = ‘bar’, answer = 42)

dict({‘foo’: ‘bar’, ‘answer’: 42}) dicti({‘foo’: ‘bar’, ‘answer’: 42})

Methods that accept keys and have side-effects record the original case, just as a normal dictionary does.

di = dicti() di[‘cAsE’] = 1 di.keys() == [‘cAsE’] di[‘Case’] = 1 di.keys() == [‘Case’] di[‘caSE’] == 1

Methods that accept keys do the same thing regardless of what case you pass the key in.

Keys are still stored in their original case, however; the original keys are presented when you request them with methods like dicti.keys.
