multidict 3.3.0a1

multidict implementation

Latest Version: 3.2.0

Multidict is dict-like collection of key-value pairs where key might be occurred more than once in the container.

Introduction

HTTP Headers and URL query string require specific data structure: multidict. It behaves mostly like a regular dict but it may have several values for the same key and preserves insertion ordering.

The key is str (or istr for case-insensitive dictionaries).

multidict has four multidict classes: MultiDict, MultiDictProxy, CIMultiDict and CIMultiDictProxy.

Immutable proxies (MultiDictProxy and CIMultiDictProxy) provide a dynamic view for the proxied multidict, the view reflects underlying collection changes. They implement the collections.abc.Mapping interface.

Regular mutable (MultiDict and CIMultiDict) classes implement collections.abc.MutableMapping and allows to change their own content.

Case insensitive (CIMultiDict and CIMultiDictProxy) ones assume the keys are case insensitive, e.g.:

>>> dct = CIMultiDict(key='val')
>>> 'Key' in dct
True
>>> dct['Key']
'val'

Keys should be str or istr instances.

The library has optional Cython optimization for sake of speed.

3.0.0 (2017-06-21)

  • Refactor internal data structures: main dict operations are about 100% faster now.

    Updates are md[key] = val and md.update(…) calls.

    Now the last entry is replaced with new key/value pair, all previous occurrences are removed.

    If key is not present in dictionary the pair is added to the end
