CodeHint is a package for describing python functions and methods in console during runtime.

Project description

CodeHint is a package for describing a function within the python console during runtime. It works in the same way as an advanced IDE does when it displays the hint for function, but pretty-printing to console rather than to a window.

Example

If we have the following function defined somewhere in our code:

>>> def hello(a, b:int, c) -> int:
...     """
...     Hello, this is an explanation
...     of what this is going to do
...     :param a: foo
...     :param b: bar example
...     :param c:
...     :return: True if good, False otherwise.
...     """
...     x = a + b * 2*c
...     return x

It can be described later on with CodeHint:

>>> from codehint import hint
>>> hint(hello)

The result is

------------------------
def hello(a, b:int, c) -> int:

    Hello, this is an explanation of what this is going to do

=== Parameters: 3 ======
 [0] a (type Any) ->   foo
 [1] b (type int) ->   bar example
 [2] c (type Any) ->
========================
 Result (type int) ->  True if good, False otherwise.

CodeHint currently can only be used to describe the signature of functions or methods.
