A super simple string searching library for complex list/dict structures

Project description


PyPI Build Status

fynd makes it super simple to search for strings in complex list/dict (JSON like) data structures. It returns a list of paths from root of the data structure to the found strings.


pip install fynd


from fynd import Fynd as fynd

    'blogposts': [
            'title': 'Lorem Ipsum',
            'text': 'Dolor Sit Amet Blah Blah Blah'
            'title': 'Brown Fox',
            'text': 'The quick brown fox jumps over blah'

# default usage:
RESULT = fynd('blah').inside(COLLECTION)
# ^ will return,
# [
#    ['blogposts', 0, 'text'], 
#    ^ COLLECTION['blogposts'][0]['text'] == 'Dolor Sit ... Blah'
#    ['blogposts', 1, 'text']
#    ^ COLLECTION['blogposts'][1]['text'] == 'The quick ... blah'
# ]

# case sensitive usage:
RESULT = fynd('blah').case_sensitive().inside(COLLECTION)
# ^ will return,
# [
#    ['blogposts', 1, 'text']
#    ^ COLLECTION['blogposts'][1]['text'] == 'The quick ... blah'
# ]

# not found case:
RESULT = fynd('hulalala').inside(COLLECTION)
# ^ will return,
# [] an empty list
