An apply function for Python 2 and 3
Python 3 has no apply. We like apply. I you like apply as well, have no fear. This version of apply works across all versions of Python.
apply allows to create read/write properties in a very compact way:
from apply import apply class X509: def __init__(self, store): self.store = store @apply def CN(): doc = 'The common name attribute' def get(self): return self.store.get('CN') def set(self, value): self.store.put('CN', value) return property(get, set, doc=doc) record = X509(LDAP()) record.CN = 'Slate Rock and Gravel Company'
