Annoying helper module that finds unicode/bytestring comparisions and other problems.
// The Unicode Nazi //
Once enabled the unicode nazi will complain whenever something is not purely unicode or bytestring. It’s annoying as hell and only useful when porting over libraries from Python 2 to Python 3. It has a huge runtime impact on performance and will also complain about most of the stuff in the Python standard library.
usage:>>> import unicodenazi >>> 'foo' == u'foo' __main__:1: UnicodeWarning: Implicit conversion of str to unicode True
how to disable it again:>>> unicodenazi.disable()
and here is how to enable:>>> unicodenazi.enable()
if you want to enable it only for a given block:>>> unicodenazi.disable() >>> with unicodenazi.blockwise(enabled=True): ... assert 'foo' == u'foo' ... __main__:2: UnicodeWarning: Implicit conversion of str to unicode
The reverse works too of course.
The module can be used from a command line:
$ python -municodenazi your_script.py [script_args..]
