Note

This module is NOT part of the public API for sphobjinv. Its entire contents should be considered implementation detail.

Members

do_convert(inv, in_path, params)

Carry out the conversion operation, including writing output.

If OVERWRITE is passed and the output file (the default location, or as passed to OUTFILE) exists, it will be overwritten without a prompt. Otherwise, the user will be queried if it is desired to overwrite the existing file.

If QUIET is passed, nothing will be printed to stdout (potentially useful for scripting), and any existing output file will be overwritten without prompting.

Parameters
do_suggest(inv, params)

Perform the suggest call and output the results.

Results are printed one per line.

If neither INDEX nor SCORE is specified, the results are output without a header. If either or both are specified, the results are output in a lightweight tabular format.

If the number of results exceeds SUGGEST_CONFIRM_LENGTH, the user will be queried whether to display all of the returned results unless ALL is specified.

No --quiet option is available here, since a silent mode for suggestion output is nonsensical.

Parameters
err_format(exc)

Pretty-format an exception.

Parameters

excException – Exception instance to pretty-format

Returns

pretty_excstr – Exception type and message formatted as ’{type}: {message}’

getparser()

Generate argument parser.

Returns

prsArgumentParser – Parser for commandline usage of sphobjinv

import_infile(in_path)

Attempt import of indicated file.

Convenience function wrapping attempts to load an Inventory from a local path.

Parameters

in_pathstr – Path to input file

Returns

invInventory or None – If instantiation with the file at in_path succeeds, the resulting Inventory instance; otherwise, None

inv_local(params)

Create Inventory from local source.

Uses resolve_inpath() to sanity-check and/or convert INFILE.

Calls sys.exit() internally in error-exit situations.

Parameters

paramsdict – Parameters/values mapping from the active subparser

Returns

inv_url(params)

Create Inventory from file downloaded from URL.

Initially, treats INFILE as a download URL to be passed to the url initialization argument of Inventory.

If an inventory is not found at that exact URL, progressively searches the directory tree of the URL for objects.inv.

Calls sys.exit() internally in error-exit situations.

Parameters

paramsdict – Parameters/values mapping from the active subparser

Returns

main()

Handle command line invocation.

Parses command line arguments, handling the no-arguments and VERSION cases.

Creates the Inventory from the indicated source and method.

Invokes do_convert() or do_suggest() per the subparser name stored in SUBPARSER_NAME.

resolve_inpath(in_path)

Resolve the input file, handling invalid values.

Currently, only checks for existence and not-directory.

Parameters

in_pathstr – Path to desired input file

Returns

abs_pathstr – Absolute path to indicated file

Raises

FileNotFoundError – If a file is not found at the given path

resolve_outpath(out_path, in_path, params)

Resolve the output location, handling mode-specific defaults.

If the output path or basename are not specified, they are taken as the same as the input file. If the extension is unspecified, it is taken as the appropriate mode-specific value from DEF_OUT_EXT.

If URL is passed, the input directory is taken to be os.getcwd() and the input basename is taken as DEF_BASENAME.

Parameters
Returns

out_pathstr – Absolute path to the target output file

selective_print(thing, params)

Print thing if not in quiet mode.

Quiet mode is indicated by the value at the QUIET key within params.

Quiet mode is not implemented for the “suggest” CLI mode.

Parameters
• thingany – Object to be printed

• paramsdict – Parameters/values mapping from the active subparser

write_json(inv, path, *, expand=False, contract=False)

Write an Inventory to JSON.

Writes output via fileops.writejson().

Calling with both expand and contract as True is invalid.

Parameters
Raises

ValueError – If both expand and contract are True

write_plaintext(inv, path, *, expand=False, contract=False)

Write an Inventory to plaintext.

Newlines are inserted in an OS-aware manner, based on the value of os.linesep.

Calling with both expand and contract as True is invalid.

Parameters
Raises

ValueError – If both expand and contract are True

write_zlib(inv, path, *, expand=False, contract=False)

Write an Inventory to zlib-compressed format.

Calling with both expand and contract as True is invalid.

Parameters
Raises

ValueError – If both expand and contract are True

yesno_prompt(prompt)

Query user at stdin for yes/no confirmation.

Uses input(), so will hang if used programmatically unless stdin is suitably mocked.

The value returned from input() must satisfy either resp.lower() == ‘n’ or resp.lower() == ‘y’, or else the query will be repeated ad infinitum. This function does NOT augment prompt to indicate the constraints on the accepted values.

Parameters

promptstr – Prompt to display to user that requests a ‘Y’ or ‘N’ response

Returns

respstr – User response

ALL = 'all'

Optional argument name for use with the SUGGEST subparser, indicating to print all returned objects, regardless of the number returned, without asking for confirmation

CONTRACT = 'contract'

Optional argument name for use with the CONVERT subparser, indicating to contract URIs and display names to abbreviated forms in the generated output file

CONVERT = 'convert'

Subparser name for inventory file conversions; stored in SUBPARSER_NAME when selected

DEF_BASENAME = 'objects'

Default base name for an unspecified OUTFILE

DEF_OUT_EXT = {'json': '.json', 'plain': '.txt', 'zlib': '.inv'}

Default extensions for an unspecified OUTFILE

DEF_THRESH = 75

Default match threshold for sphobjinv suggest --thresh

EXPAND = 'expand'

Optional argument name for use with the CONVERT subparser, indicating to expand URI and display name abbreviations in the generated output file

HELP_CONV_EXTS = "'.inv/.txt/.json'"

Help text for default extensions for the various conversion types

HELP_CO_PARSER = 'Convert intersphinx inventory to zlib-compressed, plaintext, or JSON formats.'

HELP_SU_PARSER = 'Fuzzy-search intersphinx inventory for desired object(s).'

Help text for the SUGGEST subparser

INDEX = 'index'

INFILE = 'infile'

Required positional argument name for use with both CONVERT and SUGGEST subparsers, holding the path (or URL, if URL is specified) to the input file

JSON = 'json'

Argument value for CONVERT MODE, to output an inventory as JSON

MODE = 'mode'

Positional argument name for use with CONVERT subparser, indicating output file format (ZLIB, PLAIN or JSON)

Optional positional argument name for use with the CONVERT subparser, holding the path to the output file (DEF_BASENAME and the appropriate item from DEF_OUT_EXT are used if this argument is not provided)

OVERWRITE = 'overwrite'

Optional argument name for use with the CONVERT subparser, indicating to overwrite any existing output file without prompting

PLAIN = 'plain'
