A library for converting a token stream into a data structure for use in web form posts

## Peppercorn

A library for converting a token stream into a data structure comprised of sequences, mappings, and scalars, developed primarily for converting HTTP form post data into a richer data structure. It runs on Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.

Please see https://docs.pylonsproject.org/projects/peppercorn/en/latest/ for the documentation.

See https://github.com/Pylons/peppercorn for in-development version.

## Changes

### 0.5 (2014-09-29)

• Switch to an iterative parser rather than a recursive parser to avoid DoS attacks.

• Add the ignore operation. The subsequent data elements in the stream will be ignored until the corresponding __end__ marker. This feature is useful for form elements designed for client-side scripting, such as a “select all” checkbox in the middle of a list of other kinds of fields.

• Add support for Python 3.3.

• Drop support for Python 2.5 and Jython.

### 0.4 (2012-02-14)

• Drop support for Python 2.4.

• Add support for Python 3.2.

• Move project to GitHub.

• Switch to Pylons Project Sphinx theme.

### 0.3 (2010-09-02)

• 0.2 was a brownbag release. Handle the case where rename operation types may not have children.

### 0.2 (2010-09-02)

• Add new operation type: rename. rename begins a special mode. The value of the first subsequent data element in the stream will be used within its parent sequence or mapping. Any remaining data elements until the corresponding __end__ marker are ignored. This is mostly in support of radio buttons. See the rename docs within https://docs.pylonsproject.org/projects/peppercorn/en/latest/ for more information.

### 0.1 (2010-03-23)

• Initial release.
