A collection of methods to read and organize data stored in text

Project description

Text Parsing Tools

This is a collection of various functions to aid in parsing and organization of data stored in text files.


You can install Text Parsing Tools from a command line via PyPI:

python3 -m pip install textparsingtools

This library was programmed using Python 3.8, and it has not been tested on older versions.

How to use

Import the library and use its functions as needed. Here is a quick demo:

import text_parsing_tools

file_path = '<insert path here>'
input_file_name = 'Input file'
output_name = 'Output spreadsheet'

replacement_strings = [[' - ', '-'], ['   ', '  ']]

with open(file_path + input_file_name + '.txt', 'r') as input_file:
    file_lines = [recursively_replace(line , replacement_strings) for line in input_file.readlines()]

data_1 = get_text_data(file_lines, r"data_begin", r"data_end", 0, 1, data_begin_offset = 4)
data_2 = get_text_data(file_lines, r"data_2_begin", r"data_2_end", 0, 1, 2, 3, data_begin_offset = 5)

unique_names = []
[unique_names.append(row[0]) for row in data_1 if row[0] and row[0] not in unique_names]
[unique_names.append(row[0]) for row in data_2 if row[0] and row[0] not in unique_names]

data_1 = transpose_transcript_data(data_1, unique_names, empty_value = '=NA()')
data_2 = transpose_transcript_data(data_2, unique_names, empty_value = '=NA()')

combined_data = interleave_datasets(unique_names, data_1, data_2)

variables = ['Var 1', 'Var 2', 'Var 3', 'Var 4']
header = build_header(unique_names, variables)
write_excel_file(file_path + output_name, [combined_data], header)
