humps 🐫 Convert strings (and dictionary keys) between snake case, camel case and pascal case in Python. Inspired by Humps for Node

Introducing Humps for Python! Let’s see it in action:

>>> import humps
>>> humps.decamelize('illWearYourGranddadsClothes')   # 'ill_wear_your_granddads_clothes'
>>> humps.camelize('i_look_incredible')               # 'iLookIncredible'
>>> humps.kebabize('i_look_incredible')               # 'i-look-incredible'
>>> humps.pascalize('im_in_this_big_ass_coat')        # 'ImInThisBigAssCoat'
>>> humps.decamelize('FROMThatThriftShop')            # 'from_that_thrift_shop'
>>> humps.decamelize([{'downTheRoad': True}])         # [{'down_the_road': True}]
>>> humps.dekebabize('FROM-That-Thrift-Shop')            # 'FROM_That_Thrift_Shop'
