  • collect_dictionary

    Python, Dictionary

    Inverts a dictionary with non-unique hashable values.

  • count_by

    Python, List

    Groups the elements of a list based on the given function and returns the count of elements in each group.

  • daterange

    Python, Date

    Python, String

    Converts a hexadecimal color code to a tuple of integers corresponding to its RGB components.

  • sort_by_indexes

    Python, List

    Sorts one list based on another list containing the desired indexes.

  • bifurcate_by

    Python, List

    Splits values into two groups, based on the result of the given filtering function.

  • group_by

    Python, List

    Groups the elements of a list based on the given function.

  • sort_dict_by_value

    Python, Dictionary

    Sorts the given dictionary by value.

  • unfold

    Python, Function

    Builds a list, using an iterator function and an initial seed value.

  • map_dictionary

    Python, List
