prefixcommons

A python API for working with ID prefixes in the context of prefixcommons

Current functionality: Uses JSON-LD contexts to expand and contract CURIEs to URIs

E.g. GO:0008150 <=> http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/GO_0008150

Example

>>> from prefixcommons import contract_uri
>>> print(contract_uri('http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/GO_0008150'))
GO:0008150

>>> from prefixcommons import expand_uri
>>> print(expand_uri('GOL0008150'))
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/GO_0008150

The above uses standard JSON-LD context files from prefixcommons/biocontext

You can pass your own

>>> cmaps = [{'GO': 'http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/GO_'}]
>>> print(contract_uri('http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/GO_0008150'), cmaps)
GO:0008150
