A library for converting a token stream into a data structure for use in web form posts
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 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, and 3.3.
Please see http://docs.pylonsproject.org/projects/peppercorn/en/latest/ for the documentation.
See https://github.com/Pylons/peppercorn for in-development version.
- 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 / Jython.
- Peppercorn will no longer run under Python 2.4. 2.5 or better is required.
- Python 3.2 compatibility.
- Moved to GitHub.
- Pylons project docs theme.
- Added tox configuration.
- 0.2 was a brownbag release; a case was not handled where rename operation types may not have children. This release fixes that.
- New operation type: rename. rename begins a special mode. The value of the first subsequent data element in the stream will be used within it’s 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 http://docs.repoze.org/peppercorn for more information.
- Initial release.
