Install

pyconstring is on PyPI

pip install pyconstring

or

easy_install pyconstring

Usage examples

Constructing a connection string from scratch:

>>> from pyconstring import ConnectionString
>>> cs = ConnectionString()
>>> cs['user'] = 'manuel'
>>> cs['password'] = '1234'
>>> print cs.get_string()
User=manuel;Password=1234;

Parsing an already existing string:

>>> cs = ConnectionString.from_string('key1=value1;key2=value2;')
>>> cs['key1'] = 'another value'
>>> cs.get_string()
u'Key1=another value;Key2=value2;'
>>> cs['user'] = 'johnny'
>>> print cs.get_string()
Key1=another value;Key2=value2;User=johnny;

Automated escaping when necessary:

>>> cs = ConnectionString()
>>> cs['weird=key'] = '" weird;value  '
>>> print cs.get_string()
Weird==Key='" weird;value  ';

Key translation:

>>> cs['key'] = 'value'
>>> cs.translate({'key': 'clave'})
>>> print cs.get_string()
Clave=value;
