ordered, dynamically-expandable dot-access dictionary

Project description

DotMap is a dot-access dictionary that

  • is dynamically expandable
  • can be initialized with keys
  • easily initializes from dict
  • easily converts to dict
  • is ordered by insertion
from dotmap import DotMap

m = DotMap()

# new sub maps are created dynamically
m.people.john.age = 32
m.people.john.job = 'programmer'
m.people.mary.age = 24
m.people.mary.job = 'designer'

# iteration ordered by insertion
for k, v in m.people.items():
        print k, v

# key initialization
m = DotMap(a=1, b=2)

# easy conversion to dictionary
d = m.toDict()

# easy initialization from dictionary
newMap = DotMap(d)
print newMap

# built-in pprint
