Injector support in nameko

Project description

injector based dependency injection mechanism for the nameko services. Project is similar to flask-injector.


Nameko provides a dependency injection mechanism, built-in in the framework. It works in many cases but there are limitations:

  1. All the dependencies are injected regardless of whether they are used in the entry-point. For instance, all the dependencies will be injected for /health HTTP entry point.
  2. Dependencies cannot depend on each other.
  3. The scope is an implementation detail. Frequency of the dependency creation depends on the DependencyProvider implementation.


The library provides an alternative dependency injection mechanism to the one that is built-in in nameko. Several types of request scope can be used out of the box without special injector module declarations.

  • nameko_injector.core.ServiceConfig
  • from nameko.containers.ServiceContainer
  • from nameko.containers.WorkerContext

An example:

import json
from nameko_injector.core import NamekoInjector, ServiceConfig
from nameko.web.handlers import http

INJECTOR = NamekoInjector()

class Service:

  name = 'service-name'

  @http('GET', '/health')
  def health(self, request):
     return {'status': 'ok'}

  @http('GET', '/config')
  def view_config(self, request, config: ServiceConfig):
    return json.dumps(config)




  • testing: Add the tests for RPC entry points
  • document testing with the library
