asq is simple implementation of a LINQ-inspired API for Python which
operates over Python iterables, including a parallel version implemented in
terms of the Python standard library multiprocessing module.
What It Does
asq is a package implementing queries over iterables of Python
objects. asq provides a fluent interface making extensive use of method
chaining to create complex queries without compromising readability. For
example, to take the first five uppercased results from a list of words sorted
by length and then alphabetically, try:
>>> from asq import query >>> words = ["zero", "one", "two", "three", "four", "five", "six", "seven", "eight", "nine", "ten"] >>> query(words).order_by(len).then_by().take(5).select(str.upper).to_list() ['ONE', 'SIX', 'TEN', 'TWO', 'FIVE']
Over 40 standard query operators are provided together with various utilities to make the API even more convenient to use in Python.
Of course, there is full Narrative and reference documentation for asq
How to get it
asq is available on the Python Package Index and can be installed with
$ pip install asq
Alternatively you can download and unpack the source and install using:
$ cd asq-1.2 $ python setup.py install
This version of
asq works with and 2.7 and higher, including Python 3.
It is tested on Python 2.7, Python 3.3, Python 3.4 and Python 3.5.
Furthermore it is tested on IronPython 2.7.
