A Python enumeration package.

Project description


A Python enumeration package.

The ``flufl.enum`` library is a Python enumeration package. Its goal is to
provide simple, specific, concise semantics in an easy to read and write
syntax. ``flufl.enum`` has just enough of the features needed to make
enumerations useful, but without a lot of extra baggage to weigh them down.
This work grew out of the Mailman 3.0 project.

4.0 (2013-04-05)
* Fix documentation bugs. (LP: #1026403, LP: #1132830)
* Deprecate ``EnumValue.__int__()``; use ``IntEnumValue`` (via ``IntEnum``)
* Add ``IntEnum`` class which returns int-subclass enum values. (LP: #1132976)
- Add ``__index__()`` method to support slicing. (LP: #1132972)
- Add non-deprecated ``__int__()`` method.
* Deprecate ``make()``; use ``Enum()`` instead.
- Call ``IntEnum()`` to create integer valued enums. (LP: #1162375)
- Accept a space-separate string of enum values which are auto-split.
- Accept a dictionary of enumeration name/value pairs.
* Add ``.value`` attribute to enum values. (LP: #1132859)
* For ``__getitem__()`` and ``__call__()``, fall back to using the ``.value``
attribute if the argument has one. (LP: #1124596)
* Previously deprecated APIs ``EnumValue.enumclass``, ``EnumValue.enumname``,
and ``enum.make_enum()`` are removed. (LP: #1132951)
* Small change to the ``repr`` of enum values; they now say "value=" instead
of "int=".
* Multiple enum values now raise a `ValueError` instead of a `TypeError`.

3.3.2 (2012-04-19)

with the Cheeseshop.
* Other changes to make the Cheeseshop page look nicer. (LP: #680136)

3.3.1 (2012-01-19)
* Fix Python 3 compatibility with Sphinx's ($python install).

3.3 (2012-01-19)
* Remove the dependency on 2to3 for Python 3 support; support Python 3
directly with a single code base.
* flufl.enum.make_enum() is deprecated in favor of flufl.enum.make() which
provides a better API. (LP: #839529)
* Updated to distribute 0.6.19.
* Moved all documentation to .rst suffix.
* Make test_deprecations() compatible with Python 3 and Python 2.
* Removed markup for pylint.
* Improve documentation to illustrate that enum values with similar names and
integer representations still do not hash equally. (Found by Jeroen

3.2 (2011-08-19)
* make_enum() accepts an optional `iterable` argument to provide the values
for the enums.
* The .enumclass and .enumname attributes are deprecated. Use .enum and
.name instead, respectively.
* Improve the documentation regarding ordered comparisons and equality
tests. (LP: #794853)
* make_enum() now enforces the use of valid Python identifiers. (LP: #803570)

3.1 (2011-03-01)
* New convenience function `make_enum()`. (Contributed by Michael Foord)
* Fix `from flufl.enum import *`.
