## Installation

pip install py_expression_eval


## Tests

python setup.py test


## Documentation

All the classes and methods of py-expression-eval were written as similar as possible to their analogues from js-expression-eval to make it easier to use for validation on back-end side.

### Parser

Parser is the main class of the library that contains the methods to parse, evaluate and simplify mathematical expressions. In order to use the library you need to create an instance of this class:

> from py_expression_eval import Parser
> parser = Parser()


Once you instantiated Parser class, you can create Expression object using parse method:

> parser.parse('2 * 3')
Out: <py_expression_eval.Expression instance at 0x7f40cc4e5ef0>


### Parser.Expression

evaluate() takes a dictionary with variables as a parameter and returns the value of the expression:

> parser.parse('2 * 3').evaluate({})
Out: 6
> parser.parse('2 * 3.0').evaluate({})
Out: 6.0
> parser.parse('2 * x').evaluate({'x': 7})
Out: 14
> parser.parse('2 * x').evaluate({'x': 7.0})
Out: 14.0


substitute() creates a new expression where specified variables are replaces with a new expression. For example, to replace x with 3 + x in 2 * x expression we use the following code:

> parser.parse('2 * x').substitute('x', '3 + x').toString()
Out: '(2*(3+x))'


variables() returns a list of the variables for the expression:

> parser.parse('2 * x + y').variables()
Out: ['x', 'y']


simplify() simplifies the expression. For example,

> parser.parse('2 * 3 * x + y').simplify({}).toString()
Out: '((6*x)+y)'
> parser.parse('2 * 3 * x + y').simplify({'x': -1}).toString()
Out: '(-6+y)'
> parser.parse('cos(PI) + x').simplify({}).toString()
Out: '(-1.0+x)'


toString() converts the expression to a string.

# substitute
expr = parser.parse('2 * x + 1')
expr2 = expr.substitute('x', '4 * x')  # ((2*(4*x))+1)
expr2.evaluate({'x': 3})  # 25

# simplify
expr = parser.parse('x * (y * atan(1))').simplify({'y': 4})

# get variables
expr = parser.parse('x * (y * atan(1))')
expr.variables()  # ['x', 'y']
