Decorating: A Meta Repo To Decorators
This project encourages an exploration into the limits of decorators in
Python. While decorators might by new to beginners, they are an extremely useful feature of the language. They can be similar to Lisp Macros, but without changes to the AST. Great decorators from this packages are
@writing. This repository is made from scratch, just using Python's Standard Library, no dependency!
Another project mine called MAL uses the decorating package —- basically a command line interface for MyAnimeList. The decorator @writing can be used by just adding 3 lines of code! The behavior is a retro typing-like computer. Check out the awesome effect:
More examples are covered on my personal blog post about decorating.
Decorators & Usage
Currently public decorators on the API of decorators
Mostly decorators has a pretty consistent usage, but for now only
writing has support to use as
contextmanagers using the
Supported Python versions:
You can install the last release on PyPI by calling:
pip install --user decorating
If you want get the last development version install directly by the git repository:
pip install --user git+https://www.github.com/ryukinix/decorating
We have a published package on Arch Linux,which you can install using your favorite AUR Helper, like
yaourt -S python-decorating
Though since the version
0.6 we have support for Python2.7, an AUR package for Python2 was not made yet. Fill a issue if you have interest on that :). Thanks to Maxim Kuznetsov which implemented the necessary changes to make compatible with Python2!
Because good things need to be free.
