ScopeFormatter 1.0.3

Format a string using names in the current scope.

ScopeFormatter allows Python's string formatting to be used with names drawn from the current scope, similar to the variable interpolation found in languages such as Ruby and Perl.

Examples

>>> from scopeformatter import F
>>> greeting = 'Hello'
>>> def greet(name):
...     return F('{greeting}, {name}!')
>>> greet('world')
'Hello, world!'

Positional and keyword arguments are accepted:

>>> F('{greeting} {0} times, {name}!', len(greeting), name='world')
'Hello 5 times, world!'

Requirements

The stack inspection requires a Python VM that provides sys._getframe(), such as CPython.

Limitations

Non-global names from enclosing scopes will not be found unless they are referenced in the local scope.

>>> def outer():
...     non_local = 'non-local'
...     def inner():
...         return F('{non_local} is not referenced locally')
...     return inner()
>>> outer()
Traceback (most recent call last):
    ...
KeyError: 'non_local'
>>> def outer():
...     non_local = 'non-local'
...     def inner():
...         non_local
...         return F('{non_local} is referenced locally')
...     return inner()
>>> outer()
'non-local is referenced locally'
