Working with iterable data structures made easy

Project description

All developers are doing the same thing everyday - they’re searching for some values inside iterable data structures, trying to filter them somehow or count elements inside which satisfy some requirements. We keep writing the same code over and over again from project to project. There’s no more need to do this, Instructions to the rescue. Instructions is a library, written in Python to simplify lives of Python developers. This is how we could write some code using Instructions which searches for a string with a length of 3 inside a list of values:

>>> instructions.findstring__len(3).inside(['foo', 'bar', 'blah', 1, 2])

Instructions does all the hard work for you, just tell it what do you want to do in plain english and it will magically execute your instruction.


  • Supports Python 2.6 - 3.4, PyPy and PyPy3
