Normalizes method names according to PEP8.

Project description

Namalizer — smart method name normalizer

It allows you to keep PEP8 naming style, using libraries like `Twisted` or `unittest`.

Here is example:

import unittest
from namalizer import pep8

class MyTests(unittest.TestCase):
def set_up(self):
self.a = 'blah'

def test_example(self):
self.assert_equal(self.a, 'blah')

# or

if __name__ == '__main__':

Namalizer creates aliases for method with wrong names. In this case,
it will create aliazes in `unittest.TestCase` for methods like `setUp`,
`assertEqual`, etc..

Then, it will see that you created method `set_up` to override base class's
functionality and will create alias `setUp` for this method, this way
when `unittest` will call `setUp`, you version will be called.


If you use some library with ugly naming method, this regex will help you to
find all places where wrong names are used:

git grep -e '\(\.\|def \)[a-z]\+[A-Z]'
