Cool Python functions

Hey, Joe! Let’s talk about Python and some nice functions.

Bye

Normalize

If you already work with Decimal in tables, lists or grids and show any times values like 1.0000, 10.0000, 2.0500, 15.0200, because your database column is a decimal and don’t need show 0 in decimal values when the number is like this: 1.5000, normalize can help you:

value = Decimal('1.5000')
value = value.normalize()
print(value)
1.5

With normalize you remove excessive 0.

Textwrap

Textwrap help you with strings. Checkout.

import textwrap
foo = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Obcaecati atque porro architecto optio, nulla officiis, accusamus natus eos eius suscipit.'

print(textwrap.fill(foo, width=40))
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur
adipisicing elit. Obcaecati atque porro
architecto optio, nulla officiis,
accusamus natus eos eius suscipit.

bar = 'Hello world'
textwrap.shorten(bar, width=10, placeholder='...')
'Hello...'


All and any

Check if all values in your list are true:

all([True, True, True, False])
False


Now, check if any value is true:

any([True, True, True, False])
True

I’m going stop for here. I like to make short posts. Ok, take care!
