A case-insensitive list for Python

Project description

Version on Pypi Actions status Docs build status (master) Test coverage (master)


Class NocaseList is a case-insensitive list that preserves the lexical case of its items.


$ python
>>> from nocaselist import NocaseList

>>> list1 = NocaseList(['Alpha', 'Beta'])

>>> print(list1)  # Any access is case-preserving
['Alpha', 'Beta']

>>> 'ALPHA' in list1  # Any lookup or comparison is case-insensitive

The NocaseList class supports the functionality of the built-in list class of Python 3.8 on all Python versions it supports (except for being case-insensitive, of course). This includes the clear() and copy() methods added in Python 3.3 to the built-in list class.


To install the latest released version of the nocaselist package into your active Python environment:

The nocaselist package has no prerequisite Python packages.
