A functional string utility library for Python

Project description

A functional string utility library for Python 2 and 3. Closely inspired by implementations in Haskell and PHP.

For more documentation, please see


This package is still in an early development stage, and it is possible that the naming and API of some functions will change.


The main design goal of this library is to provide helpful string functions which complement what can already be done with str, str.format and textwrap. As such, it includes:

  • A selective set of additional string helper functions.
  • Extended versions of existing str methods as functions where useful.


Install the latest release from PyPI:

pip install stringutils


All functions are available directly off the stringutils package. You may choose to import individual functions by name, or import all.

from stringutils import reverse, unwords, words

def reverse_words(string):
    return unwords(map(reverse, words(string)))


The project is licensed under the MIT license.
