what it does

Parses simple arythmetic formula’s containing variables. Can then be used to compute values resolving the variables from a context object.

>>> from argparse import Namespace as KeyedObject
>>> from formulaparser import Formula
>>>
>>> context = KeyedObject()
>>> context.four = 4
>>> context.three = 3
>>> deepercontext = KeyedObject()
>>> deepercontext.ten = 10
>>> deepercontext.twelve = 12
>>> context.nextlevel = deepercontext
>>>
>>> Formula("((1 + 2 + 3) + 4 + (3 + 7)) + 5").calculate_value()
25
>>> Formula("4!").calculate_value()
24
>>> Formula("3.287 / 6").calculate_value()
0.5478333333333333
>>> Formula("2 ^ 8").calculate_value()
256
>>> Formula("4 - (-4)").calculate_value()
8
>>> Formula("(4 * 6) - 8 + 7 - 4 + 3").calculate_value()
22
>>> Formula("((1 + four + 3) + nextlevel.ten + (3 + 7)) + 5").calculate_value(context)
33
>>> Formula("((four!) - 6) / nextlevel.twelve").calculate_value(context)
1.5
>>> Formula("2 ^ three").calculate_value(context)
8
>>> Formula("nextlevel.twelve - (-four)").calculate_value(context)
16
>>> Formula("(four * 6) - nextlevel.ten + 7 - 4 + 3").calculate_value(context)
