A useful enumeration / choice library for Django.
Useful Enums - a library for creating Enums in a DRY way in Python
This library grew out of me getting fed up with having to create Django choices that were lists of tuples. I far preferred nicely contained enums of the form:
class MyEnum: VALUE_1 = 1 VALUE_2 = 2
However, most of the time you don't need to create all of the IDs yourself.
You should just be able to define the key names and have the Enum class do the
work for you.
usefulenums does that.
The syntax is very similar to the Django idiom for creating a tuple of choices:
from usefulenums import Enum MyEnum = Enum( ("MY_FIRST_VALUE", "My First Display Text"), ("MY_SECOND_VALUE", "My Second Value"), )
However, you can now refer to those items by name in a more Pythonic fashion, rather than having to use hard-coded strings:
>>> MyEnum.MY_FIRST_VALUE 0
Note that here,
Enum() has given automatic values to the enum items. You can
set these values yourself by passing a three-tuple to
Enum when you create
>>> MyEnum = Enum( ... ("VALUE_1", "MY_FIRST_VALUE", "My First Value"), ... ("VALUE_2", "MY_SECOND_VALUE", "My Second Value"), ... ) >>> print(MyEnum.MY_FIRST_VALUE) VALUE_1
You can also extract the Django-style choices from the
Enum so that you use
it as you've always used choices:
>>> MyEnum.as_choices() (('VALUE_1', 'My First value'), ('VALUE_2', 'My Second Value'))
django-useful-enums comes with unit tests that cover its behaviour. You can
run them using
$ pip install nose $ nosetests
