Nifty tools and containers

Project description


Specialized containers as alternatives to Python’s built-in types and to those defined in the collections standard module.

  • defaultnamedtuple factory function for namedtuples with default arguments
  • forwardingdict defaultdict subclass that passes missing key to factory


Higher order functions like those found in languages like Haskell.

  • compose compose a list of functions
  • flip create a function with reversed arguments of another function
  • foldl left-associative reduce
  • foldr right-associatve reduce


Utilities for manipulating text.

  • color add ansi colors and styles to strings


Utility functions for manipulating containers. Thanks Jack Fischer, for the idea for rmap.

  • subdict extract a subset of a dictionary
  • match compare multiple objects based on a list of shared attributes
  • rmap recursively map a function onto items of nested containers
  • head get the first element of a sequence
  • tail get all but the first element of a sequence
  • last get the last element of a sequence
  • init get all but the last element of a sequence
