Parse email addresses from an outlook stye To field

specifications

email-address-parser is a tool to parse email addresses from an outlook-like "To:" field.

The nice thing about this parser is you could give it a ridiculously jacked up list of emails: no commas, no names, names and emails stuck together (no spaces), and it'll still parse that string and give you a pretty list back.

To use:

from eparser.parsers import email_address_parser

...

emails = email_address_parser.parse(some_email_list)


Alternatively, you can instantiate your own with a list of additional bad tokens you want stripped from names:

from eparser.parsers import EmailAddressParser

parser = EmailAddressParser(bad_tokens=[";"])

emails = parser.parse(some_email_list)


String and Unicode representations are in the format: "Foo Bar" If there is no name, it's just the email.
