Formal structured dictionaries parsed from a schema

Project description


formaldict provides the constructs for parsing structured dictionaries that adhere to a schema. Along with a simple and flexible schema definition to parse and validate dictionaries, formaldict is integrated with python-prompt-toolkit. This integration allows users to easily construct flows for command line interfaces (CLIs) when parsing structured user input.

Below is an example user input flow constructed with a formaldict schema used by git-tidy:


Check out the docs for a tutorial on how to use formaldict as the backbone for parsing structured input in your library.
