Handle some of the strange standards in PHP projects

Project Description

Making some of those PHP-only functions available to Python

Sometimes you want to write a Python script for a project written in PHP. For the most part, this is easy, but for a few key things, PHP breaks with the standard and does things in a its own way. For these cases, you can use this module to compensate.


This was ripped shamelessly from a PHP forum and ported to Python:

Essentially, it’s a (hopefully perfect) replica of PHP’s http_build_query() that allows you to pass multi-dimensional arrays to a PHP-managed URL via POST or GET.


A hacked-together attempt at making an .ini file parser that’s compatible with the “standards” that PHP follows in its parse_ini_file() function. Among the handy features included are:

  • List notation (varname[] = value)
  • Associative array notation (varname[key] = value)
  • Removal of wrapping doublequotes (varname = "stuff" becomes varname = stuff)

You can turn off the doublequote removal with stripquotes=False


from php.php import Php
config = Php.parse_ini_file("config.ini")
print config["sectionName"]["keyName"]
