Simpler, cleaner access to regular expressions. Globs too.
A simplified interface to Python’s regular expression (re) string search that tries to eliminate steps and provide simpler access to results. As a bonus, also provides compatible way to access Unix glob searches.
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
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!')
