To install humps, simply use pipenv (or pip, of course):

$ pipenv install pyhumps

API Reference and User Guide available on Countor


Converting strings

import humps

humps.camelize('jack_in_the_box')  # jackInTheBox
humps.decamelize('rubyTuesdays')  # ruby_tuesdays
humps.pascalize('red_robin')  # RedRobin

Converting dictionary keys

import humps

array = [{'attrOne': 'foo'}, {'attrOne': 'bar'}]
humps.decamelize(array) # [{'attr_one': 'foo'}, {'attr_one': 'bar'}]

array = [{'attr_one': 'foo'}, {'attr_one': 'bar'}]
humps.camelize(array)  # [{'attrOne': 'foo'}, {'attrOne': 'bar'}]

array = [{'attr_one': 'foo'}, {'attr_one': 'bar'}]
humps.pascalize(array)  # [{'AttrOne': 'foo'}, {'AttrOne': 'bar'}]

Checking character casing

import humps

humps.is_camelcase('illWearYourGranddadsClothes')  # True
humps.is_pascalcase('ILookIncredible')  # True
humps.is_snakecase('im_in_this_big_ass_coat')  # True
humps.is_camelcase('from_that_thrift_shop')  # False
humps.is_snakecase('downTheRoad')  # False

# what about abbrevations, acronyms, and initialisms? No problem!
humps.decamelize('APIResponse')  # api_response

Humps Cookbook

Pythonic Boto3 API Wrapper

import humps
import boto3

def api(service, decamelize=True, *args, **kwargs):
    service, func = service.split(':')
    client = boto3.client(service)
    kwargs = humps.pascalize(kwargs)
    response = getattr(client, func)(*args, **kwargs)
    return (depascalize(response) if decamelize else response)

# usage
api('s3:download_file', bucket='bucket', key='hello.png', filename='hello.png')
