This can be useful when exploring new modules (either built-in or third-party), because attributes are mostly a) data elements or b) functions or methods, and for either of those, you would like to know the type of the attribute, so that, if it is a data element, you can print it, and if it is a function or method, you can print its docstring to get brief help on its arguments, processsing and outputs or return values, as a way of learning how to use it.</p> <p>The code for the recipe includes an example call to it, at the end of the code. Note that you first have to import the modules that you want to introspect in this way.</p> Method signature type checking decorator for Python 3 (Python) 2015-05-15T09:25:08-07:00Dmitry Dvoinikovhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2475216/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/572161-method-signature-type-checking-decorator-for-pytho/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 572161 by <a href="/recipes/users/2475216/">Dmitry Dvoinikov</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/checking/">checking</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorator/">decorator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/interface/">interface</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/method/">method</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/signature/">signature</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/sysadmin/">sysadmin</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/type/">type</a>).

Revision 2. </p> <p>TL;DR: Short way of doing stuff like <code>def __init__(self, a, b): self.a = a; self.b = b</code>, using type annotations from PEP 484, inspired by Dart's <code>MyConstructor(this.a, this.b)</code> and Ruby's/Crystal's/(Moon|Coffee)Script's <code>constructor/initialize(@a, @b)</code>.</p> type Checking in Python using decorators (version 2.0) (Python) 2012-11-19T13:15:35-08:00LL Snarkhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4180463/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578330-type-checking-in-python-using-decorators-version-2/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578330 by <a href="/recipes/users/4180463/">LL Snark</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/checking/">checking</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/debugging/">debugging</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorators/">decorators</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/type/">type</a>).

Revision 5. </p> <p>Some other recipes have been suggested to allow type checking by various means. Some of these require the use of type specification in a decorator itself. Others try to be much more elaborate in processing a large variety of annotations (but hence require much more and more convoluted code).</p> <p>The recipe provided below is very short, and simply provides actual <strong>type</strong> checking of arguments and return values. It utilizes an unadorned decorator, rather than manufacture one that is parameterized by types or other arguments.</p> Type-Checking Function Overloading Decorator (Python) 2010-04-11T11:16:48-07:00Ryan Liehttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4171032/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577065-type-checking-function-overloading-decorator/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577065 by <a href="/recipes/users/4171032/">Ryan Lie</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/checkng/">checkng</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorator/">decorator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/function/">function</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/overloading/">overloading</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/python/">python</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/type/">type</a>). Revision 2. </p> <p>The recipe presents a function overloading decorator in python that do type check. The type signature is marked with the @takes and @returns decorator, which causes the function to raise an InputParameterError exception if called with inappropriate arguments. The @overloaded function searches for the first overloads that doesn't raise TypeError or InputParameterError when called. Alternative overloads are added to the overloads list by using the @func.overload_with decorator. The order of function definition determines which function gets tried first and once it founds a compatible function, it skips the rest of the overloads list.</p> Homogeneous list (Python) 2009-04-14T12:09:19-07:00marlonamorhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4169863/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576718-homogeneous-list/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576718 by <a href="/recipes/users/4169863/">marlonamor</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/list/">list</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/type/">type</a>). </p> <p>This is a little code for making a list that can have only items from a list of types</p>
