A tidier way of coding literal OrderedDicts

Project description

Provides a nice way of specifying ordered dictionaries from Python source.


>>> from odictliteral import odict
>>> x = odict[1:2,3:4]
>>> print(x)
odict[1: 2, 3: 4]

You can use odict as a replacement for OrderedDict otherwise, eg:

>>> y = odict( [(1,2), (3,4)] )
>>> print(y)
odict[1: 2, 3: 4]
>>> x == y

You should also be able to use odict in combination with OrderedDicts:

>>> z = OrderedDict( [(1,2), (3,4)] )
>>> print(z)
OrderedDict([(1, 2), (3, 4)])
>>> y == z

That’s pretty much all there is to it. Should be compatible with Python 2.7 and Python 3; requires the “ordereddict” module to work with Python 2.4, 2.5 or 2.6.
