Parsing and validation of URIs (RFC 3896) and IRIs (RFC 3987)

Project description

This module provides regular expressions according to RFC 3986 “Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax” and RFC 3987 “Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)”, and utilities for composition and relative resolution of references:

patterns

A dict of regular expressions keyed by rule names for URIs and rule names for IRIs.

>>> u = regex.compile('^%s$' % patterns['URI'])
>>> m = u.match(u'http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#appendix-A')
>>> assert m.groupdict() == dict(scheme=u'http',
...                              authority=u'tools.ietf.org',
...                              userinfo=None, host=u'tools.ietf.org',
...                              port=None, path=u'/html/rfc3986',
...                              query=None, fragment=u'appendix-A')
>>> assert not u.match(u'urn:\U00010300')
>>> assert regex.match('^%s$' % patterns['IRI'], u'urn:\U00010300')
>>> assert not regex.match('^%s$' % patterns['relative_ref'], '#f#g')
compose
Returns an URI composed from named parts.
resolve

Resolves an URI reference relative to a base URI.

Test cases:

>>> base = "http://a/b/c/d;p?q"
>>> for relative, resolved in {
...     "g:h"           :  "g:h",
...     "g"             :  "http://a/b/c/g",
...     "./g"           :  "http://a/b/c/g",
...     "g/"            :  "http://a/b/c/g/",
...     "/g"            :  "http://a/g",
...     "//g"           :  "http://g",
...     "?y"            :  "http://a/b/c/d;p?y",
...     "g?y"           :  "http://a/b/c/g?y",
...     "#s"            :  "http://a/b/c/d;p?q#s",
...     "g#s"           :  "http://a/b/c/g#s",
...     "g?y#s"         :  "http://a/b/c/g?y#s",
...     ";x"            :  "http://a/b/c/;x",
...     "g;x"           :  "http://a/b/c/g;x",
...     "g;x?y#s"       :  "http://a/b/c/g;x?y#s",
...     ""              :  "http://a/b/c/d;p?q",
...     "."             :  "http://a/b/c/",
...     "./"            :  "http://a/b/c/",
...     ".."            :  "http://a/b/",
...     "../"           :  "http://a/b/",
...     "../g"          :  "http://a/b/g",
...     "../.."         :  "http://a/",
...     "../../"        :  "http://a/",
...     "../../g"       :  "http://a/g",
...     "../../../g"    :  "http://a/g",
...     "../../../../g" :  "http://a/g",
...     "/./g"          :  "http://a/g",
...     "/../g"         :  "http://a/g",
...     "g."            :  "http://a/b/c/g.",
...     ".g"            :  "http://a/b/c/.g",
...     "g.."           :  "http://a/b/c/g..",
...     "..g"           :  "http://a/b/c/..g",
...     "./../g"        :  "http://a/b/g",
...     "./g/."         :  "http://a/b/c/g/",
...     "g/./h"         :  "http://a/b/c/g/h",
...     "g/../h"        :  "http://a/b/c/h",
...     "g;x=1/./y"     :  "http://a/b/c/g;x=1/y",
...     "g;x=1/../y"    :  "http://a/b/c/y",
...     }.iteritems():
...     assert resolve(base, relative) == resolved

If return_parts is True, returns a dict of named parts instead of a string.
