Boostrap mechanism for monkey patches.

Project Description

A Python module for triggering monkey patching of a Python application, without the need to actually modify the Python application itself to setup the monkey patches.

The package works in conjunction with the wrapt module. One would create post import hook patch modules per wrapt module requirements, and then list the names of the setuptools entrypoints you wish to activate in the AUTOWRAPT_BOOTSTRAP environment variable, when executing Python within the environment that the autowrapt module is installed.

To understand what is possible, a set of examples is also installed with this package. To see the examples in action run the following:

AUTOWRAPT_BOOTSTRAP=autowrapt.examples python

At the Python interpreter prompt then enter:

import this

This should print out the Zen of Python as normal, but with an extra line added to the end.
