Simpler, cleaner access to regular expressions. Globs too.
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.
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!')
It can also conveniently match against multiple glob patterns, and/or do case-insensitive glob searches.
See Read the Docs for the full installation and usage documentation.
Version 1.1 adds multi-pattern and case insensitive Glob subclass. Added wheel packaging. Rearranged and extended testing structure. Updated setup and docs.
See CHANGES.rst for a fuller historical view of changes.
Successfully packaged for, and tested against, all late-model versions of Python: 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5 pre-release (3.5.0b3) as well as PyPy 2.6.0 (based on 2.7.9) and PyPy3 2.4.0 (based on 3.2.5).
To install or upgrade to the latest version:
pip install -U simplere
To easy_install under a specific Python version (3.3 in this example):
python3.3 -m easy_install --upgrade simplere
(You may need to prefix these with sudo to authorize installation. In environments without super-user privileges, you may want to use pip’s --user option, to install only for a single user, rather than system-wide.)
