An apply function for Python 2 and 3

Project description

Package Contents

apply(object, args=None, kwargs=None)

Call object with args and kwargs; return its results.


Python 3 has no apply. We like apply. If 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): = store

    def CN():
        doc = 'The common name attribute'
        def get(self):
        def set(self, value):
  'CN', value)
        return property(get, set, None, doc)

record = X509(LDAP())
record.CN = 'Slate Rock and Gravel Company'


For further details please refer to the API Documentation.
