Have you ever needed to transform a whatever python object in depth? So this one is for you. =]


pip install pyrecursive


from pyrecursive import pyrecursive

def double(obj):
    return x * 2

pyrecursive(42, double)
# result: 84

pyrecursive([1, 2, 3, [4, 5, [6], 7], 8, 9, 'x'], double)
# result: [2, 4, 6, [8, 10, [12], 14], 16, 18, 'xx']

pyrecursive({'hamster': [1, 2, 3, {'test': 42}]}, double)
# result: {'hamster': [2, 4, 6, {'test': 84}]}

# In order to transform dict keys in depth: set transform_dict_keys variable to True (default: False).
pyrecursive({'hamster': [1, 2, 3, {'test': 42}]}, double, transform_dict_keys=True)
# result: {'hamsterhamster': [2, 4, 6, {'testtest': 84}]}

# In order not to transform dict values in depth: set transform_dict_values variable to False (default: True).
pyrecursive({'hamster': [1, 2, 3, {'test': 42}]}, double, transform_dict_values=False)
# result: {'hamster': [2, 4, 6, {'test': 42}]}

# In order to define custom rules for each object type in depth: set custom_rules variable.
pyrecursive([1, 2, 3, 'banana'], double, custom_rules={int: lambda x: x * 5})
# result: [5, 10, 15, 'bananabanana'] (multiplied by 5 when int, multiplied by 2 otherwise)


Did you think in some interesting feature, or have you found a bug? Please let me know!

Of course you can also download the project and send me some pull requests. Please keep in mind that (1) we do follow pep8, (2) our line-length is 120 chars and (3) your changes must be compatible with Python 2.7 and Python 3.6+.

You can send your suggestions by opening issues.

You can contact me directly as well. Take a look at my contact information at (email is preferred rather than mobile phone).
