Utilities to convert construction dictionaries to Python objects.

honeybee_energy.construction.dictutil.dict_abridged_to_construction(constr_dict, materials, schedules, raise_exception=True)[source]

Get a Python object of any Construction from an abridged dictionary.

Parameters
  • constr_dict – An abridged dictionary of any Honeybee energy construction.

  • materials – Dictionary of all material objects that might be used in the construction with the material identifiers as the keys.

  • schedules – Dictionary of all schedule objects that might be used in the construction with the schedule identifiers as the keys.

  • raise_exception – Boolean to note whether an excpetion should be raised if the object is not identified as a construction. Default: True.

Returns

A Python object derived from the input constr_dict.

Parameters
  • constr_dict – A dictionary of any Honeybee energy construction. Note that this should be a non-abridged dictionary to be valid.

  • raise_exception – Boolean to note whether an excpetion should be raised if the object is not identified as a construction. Default: True.

Returns

A Python object derived from the input constr_dict.
