bidict

The bidirectional mapping library for Python.

bidict by example:

>>> from bidict import bidict
>>> element_by_symbol = bidict({'H': 'hydrogen'})
>>> element_by_symbol['H']
'hydrogen'
>>> element_by_symbol.inverse['hydrogen']
'H'

class bidict.BidirectionalMapping[source]

Bases: collections.abc.Mapping

Abstract base class (ABC) for bidirectional mapping types.

Extends collections.abc.Mapping primarily by adding the (abstract) inverse property, which implementors of BidirectionalMapping should override to return a reference to the inverse BidirectionalMapping instance.

Implements __subclasshook__ such that any Mapping that also provides inverse will be considered a (virtual) subclass of this ABC.

__slots__ = ()
abstract property inverse

The inverse of this bidirectional mapping instance.

See also bidict.BidictBase.inverse, bidict.BidictBase.inv

Raises

NotImplementedError – Meant to be overridden in subclasses.

__inverted__()[source]

Get an iterator over the items in inverse.

This is functionally equivalent to iterating over the items in the forward mapping and inverting each one on the fly, but this provides a more efficient implementation: Assuming the already-inverted items are stored in inverse, just return an iterator over them directly.

Providing this default implementation enables external functions, particularly inverted(), to use this optimized implementation when available, instead of having to invert on the fly.

See also bidict.inverted()

values()[source]

A set-like object providing a view on the contained values.

Override the implementation inherited from Mapping. Because the values of a BidirectionalMapping are the keys of its inverse, this returns a KeysView rather than a ValuesView, which has the advantages of constant-time containment checks and supporting set operations.

classmethod __subclasshook__(C)[source]

Check if C is a Mapping that also provides an inverse attribute, thus conforming to the BidirectionalMapping interface, in which case it will be considered a (virtual) C even if it doesn’t explicitly extend it.

class bidict.BidictBase(*args, **kw)[source]

Bases: bidict._abc.BidirectionalMapping

Base class implementing BidirectionalMapping.

on_dup = OnDup(key=<bidict.DROP_OLD>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>)

The default OnDup that governs behavior when a provided item duplicates the key or value of other item(s).

See also Values Must Be Unique, Extending bidict

__init__(*args, **kw)[source]

Make a new bidirectional dictionary. The signature behaves like that of dict. Items passed in are added in the order they are passed, respecting the on_dup class attribute in the process.

property inverse

The inverse of this bidict.

See also inv

property inv

Alias for inverse.

__getstate__()[source]

Needed to enable pickling due to use of __slots__ and weakrefs.

See also object.__getstate__()

__setstate__(state)[source]

Implemented because use of __slots__ would prevent unpickling otherwise.

See also object.__setstate__()

__repr__()[source]

See repr().

__eq__(other)[source]

x.__eq__(other) ⟺ x == other

Equivalent to dict(x.items()) == dict(other.items()) but more efficient.

Note that bidict's __eq__() implementation is inherited by subclasses, in particular by the ordered bidict subclasses, so even with ordered bidicts, == comparison is order-insensitive.

See also bidict.FrozenOrderedBidict.equals_order_sensitive()

Bases: bidict._base.BidictBase, collections.abc.MutableMapping

Base class for mutable bidirectional mappings.

__slots__ = ()
__delitem__(key)[source]

x.__delitem__(y) ⟺ del x[y]

__setitem__(key, val)[source]

Set the value for key to val.

If key is already associated with val, this is a no-op.

If key is already associated with a different value, the old value will be replaced with val, as with dict’s __setitem__().

If val is already associated with a different key, an exception is raised to protect against accidental removal of the key that’s currently associated with val.

Use put() instead if you want to specify different behavior in the case that the provided key or value duplicates an existing one. Or use forceput() to unconditionally associate key with val, replacing any existing items as necessary to preserve uniqueness.

Raises
put(key, val, on_dup=OnDup(key=<bidict.RAISE>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>))[source]

Associate key with val, honoring the OnDup given in on_dup.

For example, if on_dup is ON_DUP_RAISE, then key will be associated with val if and only if key is not already associated with an existing value and val is not already associated with an existing key, otherwise an exception will be raised.

If key is already associated with val, this is a no-op.

Raises
forceput(key, val)[source]

Associate key with val unconditionally.

Replace any existing mappings containing key key or value val as necessary to preserve uniqueness.

clear()[source]

  • TypeError – if base_type is not a subclass of BidirectionalMapping. (This function requires slightly more of base_type, e.g. the availability of an _isinv attribute, but all the concrete bidict types that the bidict module provides can be passed in.

__str__()

Return str(self).

classmethod __subclasshook__(C)

Check if C is a Mapping that also provides an inverse attribute, thus conforming to the BidirectionalMapping interface, in which case it will be considered a (virtual) C even if it doesn’t explicitly extend it.

get(k[, d]) → D[k] if k in D, else d. d defaults to None.
property inv

Alias for inverse.

property inverse

The inverse of this bidict.

See also inv

items() → a set-like object providing a view on D's items
keys() → a set-like object providing a view on D's keys
on_dup = OnDup(key=<bidict.DROP_OLD>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>)
values()

A set-like object providing a view on the contained values.

Override the implementation inherited from Mapping. Because the values of a BidirectionalMapping are the keys of its inverse, this returns a KeysView rather than a ValuesView, which has the advantages of constant-time containment checks and supporting set operations.

class bidict.OrderedBidict(*args, **kw)[source]

Bases: bidict._orderedbase.OrderedBidictBase, bidict._mut.MutableBidict

Mutable bidict type that maintains items in insertion order.

__slots__ = ()
clear()[source]

Remove all items.

popitem(last=True)[source]

x.popitem() → (k, v)

Remove and return the most recently added item as a (key, value) pair if last is True, else the least recently added item.

Raises

KeyError – if x is empty.

move_to_end(key, last=True)[source]

Move an existing key to the beginning or end of this ordered bidict.

The item is moved to the end if last is True, else to the beginning.

Raises

KeyError – if the key does not exist

__class__

alias of abc.ABCMeta

__contains__(key)
__copy__()

Used for the copy protocol.

See also the copy module

__delattr__()

Implement delattr(self, name).

__delitem__(key)

x.__delitem__(y) ⟺ del x[y]

__dir__()

Default dir() implementation.

__eq__(other)

x.__eq__(other) ⟺ x == other

Equivalent to dict(x.items()) == dict(other.items()) but more efficient.

Note that bidict's __eq__() implementation is inherited by subclasses, in particular by the ordered bidict subclasses, so even with ordered bidicts, == comparison is order-insensitive.

See also bidict.FrozenOrderedBidict.equals_order_sensitive()

__format__()

Default object formatter.

__ge__()

Return self>=value.

__getattribute__()

Return getattr(self, name).

__getitem__(key)

x.__getitem__(key) ⟺ x[key]

__getstate__()

Needed to enable pickling due to use of __slots__ and weakrefs.

See also object.__getstate__()

__gt__()

Return self>value.

__hash__ = None
__init__(*args, **kw)

Make a new ordered bidirectional mapping. The signature behaves like that of dict. Items passed in are added in the order they are passed, respecting the on_dup class attribute in the process.

The order in which items are inserted is remembered, similar to collections.OrderedDict.

__init_subclass__()

This method is called when a class is subclassed.

The default implementation does nothing. It may be overridden to extend subclasses.

__inverted__()

Get an iterator over the items in inverse.

This is functionally equivalent to iterating over the items in the forward mapping and inverting each one on the fly, but this provides a more efficient implementation: Assuming the already-inverted items are stored in inverse, just return an iterator over them directly.

Providing this default implementation enables external functions, particularly inverted(), to use this optimized implementation when available, instead of having to invert on the fly.

See also bidict.inverted()

__iter__(reverse=False)

Iterator over the contained keys in insertion order.

__le__()

Return self<=value.

__len__()

The number of contained items.

__lt__()

Return self<value.

__ne__()

Return self!=value.

__new__()

Create and return a new object. See help(type) for accurate signature.

__reduce__()

Helper for pickle.

__reduce_ex__()

Helper for pickle.

__repr__()

See repr().

__reversed__()

Iterator over the contained keys in reverse insertion order.

__setattr__()

Implement setattr(self, name, value).

__setitem__(key, val)

Set the value for key to val.

If key is already associated with val, this is a no-op.

If key is already associated with a different value, the old value will be replaced with val, as with dict’s __setitem__().

If val is already associated with a different key, an exception is raised to protect against accidental removal of the key that’s currently associated with val.

Use put() instead if you want to specify different behavior in the case that the provided key or value duplicates an existing one. Or use forceput() to unconditionally associate key with val, replacing any existing items as necessary to preserve uniqueness.

Raises
__setstate__(state)

Implemented because use of __slots__ would prevent unpickling otherwise.

See also object.__setstate__()

__sizeof__()

Size of object in memory, in bytes.

__str__()

Return str(self).

classmethod __subclasshook__(C)

Check if C is a Mapping that also provides an inverse attribute, thus conforming to the BidirectionalMapping interface, in which case it will be considered a (virtual) C even if it doesn’t explicitly extend it.

copy()

A shallow copy of this ordered bidict.

equals_order_sensitive(other)

Order-sensitive equality check.

See also __eq__() is order-insensitive

forceput(key, val)

Associate key with val unconditionally.

Replace any existing mappings containing key key or value val as necessary to preserve uniqueness.

forceupdate(*args, **kw)

Like a bulk forceput().

get(k[, d]) → D[k] if k in D, else d. d defaults to None.
property inv

Alias for inverse.

property inverse

The inverse of this bidict.

See also inv

items() → a set-like object providing a view on D's items
keys() → a set-like object providing a view on D's keys
on_dup = OnDup(key=<bidict.DROP_OLD>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>)
pop(key, default=<MISS>)

x.pop(k[, d]) → v

Remove specified key and return the corresponding value.

Raises

KeyError – if key is not found and no default is provided.

put(key, val, on_dup=OnDup(key=<bidict.RAISE>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>))

Associate key with val, honoring the OnDup given in on_dup.

For example, if on_dup is ON_DUP_RAISE, then key will be associated with val if and only if key is not already associated with an existing value and val is not already associated with an existing key, otherwise an exception will be raised.

If key is already associated with val, this is a no-op.

Raises
putall(items, on_dup=OnDup(key=<bidict.RAISE>, val=<bidict.RAISE>, kv=<bidict.RAISE>))

Like a bulk put().

If one of the given items causes an exception to be raised, none of the items is inserted.

setdefault(k[, d]) → D.get(k,d), also set D[k]=d if k not in D
update(*args, **kw)

Like calling putall() with self.on_dup passed for on_dup.

values()

A set-like object providing a view on the contained values.

Override the implementation inherited from Mapping. Because the values of a BidirectionalMapping are the keys of its inverse, this returns a KeysView rather than a ValuesView, which has the advantages of constant-time containment checks and supporting set operations.
