One often sees very long function calls and expressions as text parts are being assembled. In order to reduce this problem, quoter defines aliases for single, double, and triple quoting, as well as backticks, and double backticks:

from quoter import qs, qd, qt, qb, qdb

print qs('one'), qd('two'), qt('three'), qb('and'), qdb('four')
# 'one' "two" """three""" `and` ``four``

You can, of course, define your own aliases as well, and/or redefine existing styles. If, for example, you like braces but wish it added a padding space by default, it’s simple to redefine:

sbraces = Quoter('{', '}', padding=1)
print sbraces('braces plus spaces!')  # '{ braces plus spaces! }'

You could alternatively riff off of the existing braces:

sbraces = braces.but(padding=1)

You could still get the no-padding variation with:

print braces('no space braces', padding=0) # '{no space braces}'
