Namespace class factory.

Project Description

The namedspace factory generates a simple class that encapsulates a namespace and provides various means to access it.

It is inspired by namedtuple (and shamelessly copies some of the namedtuple code), and was motivated by my realization that I was often abusing namedtuple, using a namedtuple as a base class for numerous simple custom classes that I was writing.

In these cases, it was the named attribute access and immutability of the namedtuple that was desirable, and the sequence behavior was not needed. In fact, when properties were used to override the returned value of a named attribute, the values available from the underlying tuple would not match. Fixing this behavior in a sub-class proved much more difficult than expected, which was especially frustrating since this was behavior that wasn’t needed anyway.

So, namedspace was born. Orginally, I called it “namespace” (without the ‘d’), but there was already a namespace project on PyPi, and calling it “namedspace” gives a nod to its namedtuple ancestry.
