Python String Utils: Overview¶
This is a handy library to validate, manipulate and generate strings, which is:
Simple and “pythonic”
Fully documented and with examples!
100% code coverage!
Tested against all officially supported Python versions: 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8.
Fast (mostly based on compiled regex)
Free from external dependencies
>>> pip install python-string-utils
Checking installed version¶
>>> import string_utils >>> string_utils.__version__ >>> '1.0.0' # (if '1.0.0' is the installed version)
The library basically consists in the python package string_utils, containing the following modules:
validation.py (contains string check api)
manipulation.py (contains string transformation api)
generation.py (contains string generation api)
errors.py (contains library-specific errors)
_regex.py (contains compiled regex FOR INTERNAL USAGE ONLY)
Plus a secondary package tests which includes several submodules. Specifically one for each test suite and named according to the api to test (eg. tests for is_ip() will be in test_is_ip.py and so on). All the public API are importable directly from the main package string_utils, so this:
>>> from string_utils.validation import is_ip
can be simplified as:
>>> from string_utils import is_ip
