simple subset of regex

Project Description

# simplex 0.1.2



simple subset of regex that 'compiles' to python regexs

# Installation

`pip install simplex`

# Getting Started

import simplex

pattern = "Hello, [name]"
compiled = simplex.compile(pattern)

# compiled is now a regular regexp
string = "Hello, jack and jill and world!"
match = regex.match(message)
fields = match.groupdict()


# Versioning and RFC2812

* Simplex follows semver for its **public** API.

* Currently, `compile` is the only public function of simplex.
* You should not rely on the internal api staying the same between minor versions.
* Over time, private apis may be raised to become public. The reverse will never occur.

# Contributing
Contributions welcome! Please make sure `tox` passes (including flake8) before submitting a PR.

### Development
simplex uses `tox`, `pytest` and `flake8`. To get everything set up:

# RECOMMENDED: create a virtualenv with:
# mkvirtualenv simplex
git clone
pip install tox


### compile(pattern)

TODO: document the rules for compiling patterns
