Simpler, cleaner access to regular expressions. Globs too.

Travis CI build status PyPI Package latest release Supported versions Supported implementations Wheel packaging support Test line coverage Test branch coverage

A simplified interface to Python’s regular expression (re) string search. Eliminates steps and provides simpler access to results. As a bonus, also provides compatible way to access Unix glob searches.

Usage

Python regular expressions are powerful, but the language’s lack of an en passant (in passing) assignment requires a preparatory motion and then a test:

import re

match = re.search(pattern, some_string)
if match:
    print match.group(1)

With simplere, you can do it in fewer steps:

from simplere import *

if match / re.search(pattern, some_string):
    print match[1]

That’s particularly valuable in complex search-and-manipulate code that requires multiple levels of searching along with pre-conditions, error checking, and post-match cleanup, formatting, and actions.

As a bonus, simplere also provides simple glob access.:

if 'globtastic' in Glob('glob*'):
    print "Yes! It is!"
else:
    raise ValueError('OH YES IT IS!')

It can also conveniently match against multiple glob patterns, and/or do case-insensitive glob searches.
