Customizable syntax for Python.

Possible uses

  • Experimenting with possible language features.

  • Boilerplate reduction.


Unicode lambdas

from __syntax__ import unicode_lambda

func = λx: x + 1

is equivalent to

func = lambda x: x + 1

SQL template literals

Embedded sql:

from __syntax__ import sql_literals

engine.query(sql`SELECT author FROM books WHERE name = {book} AND author = {author}`)

is equivalent to:

engine.query('SELECT author FROM books WHERE name = ? AND author = ?', [book, author])


The example transformers are written in a fragile way. They are intended only as inspiration rather than production-ready transformers. If you want to add some production-ready ones, pull-requests are welcome.
