No project description provided
exgurd provides a decorator to guard a function or method against exceptions. This is useful in situations where untrusted code is executed, e.g. when executing a third-party module in a framework.
In comparison to the suppress context manager from Python 3, exguard provides more means to control exception handling:
- filter on modules and namespaces to define which exceptions to catch and leave exceptions in other code untouched
- execute a callback function once an exception was caught
- execute a callback function in the finally block
For example, an API method in a web application that calls through to code in third-party modules can be guarded against exceptions in this modules only, while having exceptions in the framework itself be raised verbatim:
from exguard import guard, traceback_str def throw_to_client(exception, module): tb = traceback_str(exception) # Do something to pass a traceback to the browser, disable the plugin,… pass # All third-party modules are under one namespace @guard(modules=["myframework.plugins"], submodules=True, fullstack=True, cb_except=throw_to_client) def call_plugin_api(): # An exception inside this will be caught myframework.plugins.evil.crash() # This will still raise an exception like normal x = 17 / 0
