Replacement for tr/sed replace in python

Project description

PyPI version


Text substitution similar to tr or sed s// but without the frustration. Uses plain old python regex style.


Now deployed to pypi, install with:

pip install riptr

This adds the riptr and rtr cli tools to your python environment path.


echo "some example text 1234" > test.file

# default output is stdout
riptr -m "^(.*?)([\d]{2})" -s "\g<1>56" test.file
some example text 5634

# specify patch mode 'p'
riptr -m "^(.*?)([\d]{2})" -s "\g<1>56" -o p test.file
@@ -1 +1 @@
-some example text 1234
+some example text 5634

# or inplace
riptr -m "^(.*?)([\d]{2})" -s "\g<1>56" -o i test.file
cat test.file
some example text 5634
