YesNo - koviubi56/useful Wiki

YesNo evaluates any input and produces a normalized yes or nil output, based on the content of the input and several configurable options. It's case-insensitive!

Args

    input (str): The input
    yes (any, optional): Return if input is yes (somehow). Defaults to True.
    no (any, optional): Return if input is no (somehow). Defaults to False.
    blank (any, optional): Return if input is None or blank. Defaults to the no parameter.
    default (any, optional): Return if input is something else. Defaults to the yes parameter.

Inputs

Examples

You create a function, and you need a True/False parameter. But you want to not just use True and False, but also 1, and 0, on and off, and all of these should be case-insensitive. It's just way more easier to just use the yesno() function.

def division(first, second, returnZeroWhenError=False):
    returnZeroWhenError = yesno(returnZeroWhenError)
    try:
        return first / second
    except ZeroDivisionError:
        if returnZeroWhenError:
            return 0
        else:
            raise ZeroDivisionError
