A classy toolkit designed with OOP in mind.

Documentation | Source Code | Task Tracker

In our opinion, main benefits of having objects implemented in the language are encapsulation and polymorphous. Classes that could be easily used in a composition are tricky to write. The generics library aims to help you in writing code with high quality.


  • Real private attributes without loosing the readability
  • Leads to a better design forcing you to use encapsulation properly
  • Makes writing quality code with high cohesion and low coupling easier
  • Guides you to follow SOLID principles


The generics library gives you an easy way to define private attributes on objects without loosing little nice things like readability.

>>> from attr import attrs, attrib
>>> from generics import private

>>> @private
... @attrs(frozen=True)
... class User:
...     name = attrib()
...     def greet(self):
...         return f'Hello, {}'

>>> user = User('Jeff')

>>> user.greet()
'Hello, Jeff'

>>> hasattr(user, 'name')


If you have any questions, feel free to create an issue in our Task Tracker. We have the question label exactly for this purpose.
