Inspired by the famous XKCD comic Ineffective Sorts.
StackSort connects to StackOverflow, searches for 'sort a list', and downloads and runs code snippets until the list is sorted.
Go look at StackRunner, it's the better version of this.
Taking this idea an running with it,
stacksort lets you fetch unsafe, unvetted, arbitrary code from StackOverflow and blindly execute it like you would any other python package!
>>> from stacksort import bubblesort >>> l = [6, 9, 3, 1, 5, 4, 7, 8, 2] >>> bubblesort(l) # Who knows what happens here! It'll try to find a bubblesort implementation and run it
stacksort will search StackOverflow for python snippets, and use whatever you tried to import as part of the search criteria!
Try it Out!
You can try it out yourself in your browser using Binder and opening the
>>> from stacksort import config >>> import logging >>> logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG) >>> config.logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG) >>> from random import shuffle >>> l = list(range(100)) >>> shuffle(l) >>> from stacksort import quicksort >>> quicksort(l) ...
