Wrapper class for defining DRY, encapsulated choice options for CharFields.

Project description

Wrapper class for defining DRY, encapsulated choice options for CharFields.

ChoiceEnumeration

ChoiceEnumeration class can be declared at the module or class level in the following format:

class ChoiceClass(ChoiceEnumeration):
    ATTR1 = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('db_value1', 'Human readable text 1')
    ATTR2 = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('db_value2', 'Human readable text 2')

The following attributes are generated on the ChoiceEnumeration child class:

  • ALL_OPTIONS - a tuple of the supplied options
  • CHOICES - a Django char field choices-compatible tuple
  • CHOICES_DICT - a dictionary of option:text values
  • DEFAULT - (optional) the item marked as default

A typical Django example would look like:

class SomeModel(models.Model):
    class MetaVar(ChoiceEnumeration):
        FOO  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('foo',  'Foo Choice', default=True)
        BAR  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('bar',  'Bar Option')
        BAZ  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('baz',  'Baz Pick')
        SPAM = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('spam', 'Spam spam spam')
        EGGS = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('eggs', 'Eggs, Spam, and Ham')
Example interactive usage::
>>> class MetaVar(ChoiceEnumeration):
...     FOO  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('foo',  'Foo Choice', default=True)
...     BAR  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('bar',  'Bar Option')
...     BAZ  = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('baz',  'Baz Pick')
...     SPAM = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('spam', 'Spam spam spam')
...     EGGS = ChoiceEnumeration.Option('eggs', 'Eggs, Spam, and Ham')
>>> MetaVar.FOO
u'foo'
>>> MetaVar.ALL_OPTIONS
(u'foo', u'bar', u'baz', u'spam', u'eggs')
>>> MetaVar.CHOICES
((u'foo', 'Foo Choice'), (u'bar', 'Bar Option'), (u'baz', 'Baz Pick'), (u'spam', 'Spam spam spam'), (u'eggs', 'Eggs, Spam, and Ham'))
>>> MetaVar.CHOICES_DICT
{u'baz': 'Baz Pick', u'eggs': 'Eggs, Spam, and Ham', u'foo': 'Foo Choice', u'bar': 'Bar Option', u'spam': 'Spam spam spam'}
>>> MetaVar.DEFAULT
u'foo'
>>> MetaVar.CHOICES_DICT[MetaVar.FOO]
'Foo Choice'

make_enum_class

make_enum_class dynamically generates a ChoiceEnumeration derived class.

Example:

from choice_enum import make_enum_class, Option
MetaVar = make_enum_class('MetaVar',
    FOO=Option('foo',  'Foo Choice', default=True),
    BAR=Option('bar',  'Bar Option'),
    BAZ=Option('baz',  'Baz Pick')
)
