eppy3000.epMunch module

subclass Munch

class eppy3000.epMunch.EPMunch(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: munch.Munch

Subclass of Munch for eppy3000

Bases: Exception

eppy3000.epMunch.printkey(key, indent=0, formatstr=None, func=None)[source]

Prints the key in epMunch with the right indentation

Used internally by printmunch

eppy3000.epMunch.printmunch(amunch, indent=0, index=None, func=None)[source]

This prints the epMunch object

In effect, it can print the epJSON file which may have nested epMunch objects in it. Or it can print a single epMunch object. printmunch is called recursively until all epMunch objects are exhausted. It will also print a list of epMunch objects that can occur within an epJSON file

It has been tested for epJSON files. The is no guarantee that will work on a more complex nesting of epMunch objects

An epJSON object such as:

"Heating Setpoint Schedule": {
    "data": [
        {
            "field": "Through: 12/31"
        },
        {
            "field": "For: AllDays"
        },
        {
            "field": "Until: 24:00"
        },
        {
            "field": 15.0
        }
    ],
    "idf_max_extensible_fields": 4,
    "idf_max_fields": 6,
    "idf_order": 59,
    "schedule_type_limits_name": "Any Number"
},

will print out as:

Schedule:Compact                                 !-  EP_KEY
            Heating Setpoint Schedule            !-  EPJOBJECT_NAME
                                                 !-  data
                Through: 12/31                       !-  field #1
                For: AllDays                         !-  field #2
                Until: 24:00                         !-  field #3
                15.0                                 !-  field #4
            4                                    !-  idf_max_extensible_fields
            6                                    !-  idf_max_fields
            59                                   !-  idf_order
            Any Number                           !-  schedule_type_limits_name

which is much more easy on human eyes

Parameters:
  • amunch (epMunch) – an EpMunch object that may have more nested EpMunch objects within
  • indent (int) – Used internally to indent the output
  • index (int) – used internally to give index numbers to repeating items in a list
  • func (function) –

    default func = print you can get a list by:

    lines = []
    printmunch(amunch, func=line.append)
    # lines will be a list of lines
    
Returns:

Return type:

None

eppy3000.readepj module

read epj json file and have eppy like functionality

eppy3000.readepj.addeppykeys(epmunch)[source]

adds eppykeys needed by eppy3000

The way E+ json is structured:

  • the lowest branch on the json tree is the epobject
  • once you are in the epobject:
    • the epobject will not know:
      1. Its own name
      2. the type of object it is
    • it will know only its own fields

We add two new keys to the epobject that will let it store its name and object type These names start with eppy to make it clear that eppy300 has added them

  • eppykey -> stores the E+ object type (epkey)
  • eppyname -> stores the name of the object. its key in E+ json
Parameters:epmunch (eppy3000.epMunch.EPMunch) – This is the E+ file as seen by eppy3000
Returns:
Return type:None
eppy3000.readepj.readepjjson(fhandle)[source]

read an json epj

Parameters:fhandle (io.String, io.TextIOWrapper) – can be a file open for read or a io.StringIO object
Returns:
Return type:eppy.EPMunch
eppy3000.readepj.removeeppykeys(epmunch, rkeys=None)[source]

remove the eppykeys

This will remove all the additional keys that eppy added in addeppykeys(). This is usually called before saving

Parameters:
  • epmunch (eppy3000.epMunch.EPMunch) – This is the E+ file as seen by eppy3000
  • rkeys (list) – These are the keys to be removed. if rkeys is None then rkeys is set to [‘eppykey’, ‘eppyname’, ‘eppy_objepschema’]
Returns:

Return type:

None
