datadiff 1.1.5

DataDiff is a library to provide human-readable diffs of python data structures.

DataDiff is a library to provide human-readable diffs of python data structures. It can handle sequence types (lists, tuples, etc), sets, and dictionaries.

Dictionaries and sequences will be diffed recursively, when applicable.

It has special-case handling for multi-line strings, showing them as a typical unified diff.

Drop-in replacements for some nose assertions are available. If the assertion fails, a nice data diff is shown, letting you easily pinpoint the root difference.

datadiff works on Python 2.5 through Python 3.

Example

Here's an example:

>>> from datadiff import diff
>>> a = dict(foo=1, bar=2, baz=[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11])
>>> b = dict(foo=1, bar=4, baz=[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8])
>>> print diff(a, b)
--- a
+++ b
{
-'bar': 2,
+'bar': 4,
 'baz': [

 ],
 'foo': 1,
}
>>>
>>> from datadiff.tools import assert_equal
>>> assert_equal([1, 2, 3], [1, 2, 5])
