For trivial cases, these features are easy to use together, but as soon as you need to use the iterator lazily or asynchronously, a with statement won't help. That's where this recipe comes in handy:</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>send_async(with_iter(open(path, 'r'))) </code></pre> <p>This also allows you to "forward" closing for a wrapped iterator, so closing the outer iterator also closes the inner one:</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>sync_async(line.upper() for line in with_iter(open(path, 'r'))) </code></pre> CleanupManager for with statements (Python) 2011-12-18T07:20:46-08:00Nick Coghlanhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2035254/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577981-cleanupmanager-for-with-statements/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577981 by <a href="/recipes/users/2035254/">Nick Coghlan</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/contextmanager/">contextmanager</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/context_manager/">context_manager</a>). Revision 5. </p> <p>Inspired by unittest.TestCase.addCleanup(), CleanupManager provides a means to programmatically add resources to be cleaned up when leaving a with statement. This makes it easy to use with optional resources, and those derived from sequences of inputs.</p> <p>An more powerful version of this recipe with a few additional features is published under the name <code>ContextStack</code> as part of the contextlib2 module: <a href="http://contextlib2.readthedocs.org" rel="nofollow">http://contextlib2.readthedocs.org</a></p> <p>This recipe is based on a suggestion originally posted by Nikolaus Rath at <a href="http://bugs.python.org/issue13585" rel="nofollow">http://bugs.python.org/issue13585</a></p> Context manager to prevent calling code from catching exceptions (Python) 2012-06-17T09:20:56-07:00Oren Tiroshhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2033964/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577863-context-manager-to-prevent-calling-code-from-catch/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577863 by <a href="/recipes/users/2033964/">Oren Tirosh</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/context_manager/">context_manager</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/exception/">exception</a>). </p> <p>The following context manager causes any exceptions raised inside it to print a stack trace and exit immediately.

Revision 3. </p> <p>This context manager provides a convenient, Pythonic way to temporarily replace the file descriptors of <code>stdout</code> and <code>stderr</code>, redirecting to either <code>os.devnull</code> or files of your choosing. Swapping the C-level file descriptors is required when suppressing output from compiled extension modules, such as those built using F2PY. It functions equally well for pure-Python code. <em>UPDATE:</em> (see below).</p> Decorator and context manager from a single API (Python) 2010-06-27T15:15:01-07:00Michael Foordhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2183852/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577273-decorator-and-context-manager-from-a-single-api/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577273 by <a href="/recipes/users/2183852/">Michael Foord</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/contextmanager/">contextmanager</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/context_manager/">context_manager</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorator/">decorator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorators/">decorators</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/with/">with</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/with_statement/">with_statement</a>). Revision 12. </p> <p>Create objects that act as both context managers <em>and</em> as decorators, and behave the same in both cases.</p> <p>Works with Python 2.4 - 2.7 and Python 3. The tests require unittest2 or Python 3.2 to run. (And because the tests use the with statement they won't work with Python 2.4.)</p> <p>Example:</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>from contextdecorator import ContextDecorator class mycontext(ContextDecorator): def __init__(self, *args): """Normal initialiser""" def before(self): """ Called on entering the with block or starting the decorated function. If used in a with statement whatever this method returns will be the context manager. """ def after(self, *exc): """ Called on exit. Arguments and return value of this method have the same meaning as the __exit__ method of a normal context manager. """ </code></pre> <p>Both before and after methods are optional (but providing neither is somewhat pointless). See the tests for more usage examples.</p> Context manager for restoring a value (Python) 2010-01-09T07:14:06-08:00George Sakkishttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2591466/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576977-context-manager-for-restoring-a-value/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576977 by <a href="/recipes/users/2591466/">George Sakkis</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/contextlib/">contextlib</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/context_manager/">context_manager</a>). Revision 8. </p> <p>Often one wants to rebind a name or modify a mutable object, perform a bunch of actions and finally restore the name/object to its original state. An example is redirecting stdout/stderr temporarily (<a href="http://www.diveintopython.org/scripts_and_streams/stdin_stdout_stderr.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.diveintopython.org/scripts_and_streams/stdin_stdout_stderr.html</a>). The <em>restoring</em> context manager shown below simplifies this pattern::</p> <pre class="prettyprint"><code>import sys # prints in console print "hello world!" with restoring('sys.stdout'): with open('hello.txt', 'w') as sys.stdout: # prints in file print "hello world!" # prints in console again print "hello world!" </code></pre> ChangeDirectory context manager (Python) 2009-01-24T12:41:53-08:00Christophe Simonishttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4166953/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576620-changedirectory-context-manager/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576620 by <a href="/recipes/users/4166953/">Christophe Simonis</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/change/">change</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/chdir/">chdir</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/context_manager/">context_manager</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/directory/">directory</a>).
